The first thing I'm gonna do...
This time around, I don't think anything would make it easy.
I'm no lush. I never was a big drinker at all. I attended three "parties" when I was 19 and that was about it. After that, I'd have one beer until it became even slightly warm...I rarely finished it. Warm beer is gross! I grew to like wine as I became older and developed a taste for the sweet, fruity ones. (Zinfandels, Rieslings, etc.)
Then my sister-in-law told me about an amazing wine, "Red Cat." I do believe I found a favorite.
This summer has been particularly hard with graduation parties, birthdays, and wedding festivities where everyone else was having a blast while I smiled and swirled my Shirley Temple. My brother went abroad this summer and brought us home a 4-pack of Bulmer's Irish Cider (which is a very close second) that has been taunting me from the kitchen.
This is the main reason I'm excited to have a homebirth. It's not about the natural childbirth aspect at all. It's because the first thing I'm going to do as soon as that baby is latched on and nursing away, is request a full glass of my fine wine. My delicious Red Cat that has been patiently waiting for me since January. Don't you worry, sweet goblet of red goodness. I'm coming soon!
And after that, I'll have a Bulmer's. Or two.
