If They Did A Cocktail Menu For Mothers, It Would Probably Go Something Like This

Oh the excitement we mamas feel when we finally make it out for that long-awaited night out… The thrill of letting our hair down over a few drinks instead of just falling asleep on the sofa after one glass of wine. Especially when we notice we’re still in time for happy hour. Yep, cocktails! Why not? After all, it’s a much deserved ‘night off’. Actually, that goes for ‘ladies who lunch’ get togethers, Mother’s Day celebrations, birthdays…

But life totally changes when we have kids. Suddenly that cocktail menu that was a hoot in our younger days can seem like an almost unfamiliar blast from our partying past and the drink names are almost ironic. So I’ve been thinking, they really ought to come up with a cocktail menu specifically for mothers that helps us choose a drink based on what motherhood is like rather than the ingredients they contain. And if they did, I reckon the menu would go something like this.

THE ESSENTIAL COCKTAIL MENU FOR DESPERATE MOTHERS

 Cheers mothers everywhere!

      Thanks Jess. Lovely words. Oh you know it’s just a BIT sunny (ahem). Honestly, I’m actually looking forward to cooler weather…6 months of shorts and flip flops can get a bit much believe it or not!!

    This is HILARIOUS. Although, mind what you say about a Friday night in with yoga, Netflix and takeout.
