I have taken January off.  I will be back in full force in February.


after nappy happy hour

January 20, 2012

About a year ago, when her second daughter was born, my friend Erin coined the phrase, “After Nappy Happy Hour”.  You see, her #2 was a screamer, much like MY #2, so it was nice to get together occasionally and have a nice cocktail while our little ones played and, well, screamed at each other.

Today, it is my turn to host.  And the cocktail?  Well, in honor of being old girl friends back in our single days, and because Sex and the City was on late-night television last night, we are having Cosmos.  And not just your average Sex-In-The-City-Cosmopolitan, a la Carrie and Scarlet.  We are having Mommy Cosmos:

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1 adam and eve juice box

Yes, I said juice box.  And that one in particular, because it’s a serving of fruits & vegetables.  And who knows when we’ll get those…


Can’t wait for 4:00pm.  Four is the new five.
