    This phrase

    "I am a mother, and mothers should not act like that"
    I had a lady say this to another woman (they were friends) in my check out like at work today.
    they were talking about going out for St. Patrick's day,
    friend " Are we going to (whatever bar) on Tuesday?
    mom- "no I am a mother now, and mothers should not act like that, going out to bars, I must stay with my child"

    I see nothing wrong with mom going out a night, pending she has a good sitter, is not going to come home stinking drunk and smack the child around, basic common sense things.

    thoughts?

    Sounds to me like a person who is a little afraid of losing control of her own behavior, like she's not capable of going out and enjoying a drink or two and dancing with friends/partners. If her idea of going out to bars means she needs to get commode-hugging drunk, then yeah, she's probably right, she needs to stay home now.

    Hmm... I'm a mother, and occasionally I go out with my husband and friends. And yes, sometimes it's to a *gasp* bar. Of course, I don't drink now...but I used to. And sometimes I would come home hammered. If I did, my husband wasn't or vice versa. Or, if we were both going to be drinking, the kids stay at a neighbor's or something.

    Doesn't make me a bad mother. in fact, I would say I'm a better mother because I get out and have some adult time from time to time.
    Sad, sad, sad. Pathetic, actually.

    That's what I think, too.

    Ditto!

    I think that she made a decision for herself, for whatever reasons. She has decided that as a mother, she does not want to do certain things.
    Who am I to judge her?

    Do I agree with the sentiment that a "mother" should not be going out?
    Hell no!!! Isn't that why people have kids when they are really young? So that when the kid is old enough, the mom isn't too old to start clubbing/barring again?

    (We used to hit country bars in South Carolina. We ended up dancing with a 32 year old mom and her 18 year old daughter. The reason they came out was the 16 year old's kid was finally old enough to stay in the double wide with a sitter!!! (No seriosly, they had a double wide, with a huge tv that took up a large part of one wall!!!

    lady.

    I mean, my dad has come home a time or two totally hosed, and my brother and I have laughed at him (in our entire childhood). My mom doesn't drink anymore, but if she did, I wouldn't think that she's a bad mother for going out and having drinks.

    I won't be giving up alcohol after I have lil' bebe. If I drink, DH will not. If DH drinks, I will not. But that doesn't make me a bad mother.
