We talk about drinking less, complain about doing all of the things, and review some tips about what NOT to do at the doctor.
We read Sarah Hosseini’s excellent piece for Ravishly “Why I’m Done Making Mommy Wine Jokes,” and were immediately struck by her takedown of mommy wine culture. We posted the article on Facebook, and our friends had brilliant insights– things about the rhetoric of drinking being more destructive than the drinking itself, about wine being the kind of “self-care” decoy that at least you can do in front of your kids, etc. We realized that we drink a lot and probably shouldn’t, and we’d love to hear what you have to say about parenting and alcohol consumption.

We also discuss these things you should NOT do at the pediatrician, review some good books, and complain about how hard it is to be us. BECAUSE WE HAVE TOO MANY CHILDREN.
