I feel better. I was feeling like a bad mom because my kid knows what beer is.
Anyhow... my answers...
Yes, we drink occasionally in front of Porter... as in a beer or margarita here or there. And we'll occasionally have a few drinks after the kids are in bed if we have company over.
Ryan had a beer the other night with dinner and Porter wanted him to sit by him and said "Move your beer over here and sit by me, daddy." It just sounded.... ehhh.
So I was just questioning... eww... do I want my kid to know what beer is? That its an adult drink? But I think I completely agree with your replies.... if they know its an adult drink and if its something that is a part of our life (regardless of how occasional) then be open about it and remove the mystery of it. Good thoughts, bloggers!
