Wine, wine, wine – it seems Mum's everywhere are obsessing about wine, counting down the hours & minutes to wine o’clock begging many to ask the questions why Mum's drink wine? Well if this is you…..
then it’s time to set the record straight about why Mum's drink wine….
1. It passes off as Ribena or apple juice
So that when you need to pretend that you’re not actually drinking wine when you actually are…well then, you can.
2. It reduces our chances of having a heart attack (on any given day!)
As Mum's, on some days – you know when EVERYTHING is going wrong & you’re racing around like some maniac & the kids are being utter s***s & you feel like you’re one step away from having a cardiac. Well, on these days, you can at least drink some wine & perhaps head off that stress & cardiac at the pass by knowing that drinking a little wine will in fact do your heart some good – hurrah! (ok, probably not the main reason we drink it though!)
3. The empty bottles make you feel like a rock star!
Nothing says rock star more than a recycling bin overflowing with wine bottles – well, that’s basically as close to rock star-dom any of us are likely to get to anyway.
4. It makes your crap dinner taste better
Let’s face it, when you have knocked out another disaster of a dinner for the family, you can either cry into your plate OR pour yourself a glass of wine, which will make it all taste so much better!
5. Because you don’t need to leave the house to drink it
Yup wine, our old friend, can be drunk without you having to leave your house or getting out of your stained clothes & hurrah! can be drunk with your bra off too. Best enjoyed sitting on the sofa in front of Netflix.
6. It makes us less vile
Picture the scene: Pre glass of wine = vile mood, hell on earth. Post glass of wine = happy, happy, happy without a care in the world. And a happy Mama makes for a happy household. Yup, wine is the ultimate in mood enhancers (that are legal) & stress reducers so when the day is going to crap, there’s nothing wrong with bringing wine o’ clock forward by an hour or two (judge away!). P.S. did you know that a glass of wine a day can makes you less prone to depression? And Lord knows we could all do with some help on dodging that bullet.
7. It makes all that mum guilt disappear into the ether
You know it to be true – once you’ve had a glass of wine all that mum guilt just goes…poof! & vanishes away in a puff of smoke.
8. It makes you feel sexyyyyy
Yup amazing what a transformation a glass of wine can make happen. Before a glass of wine, you probably feel about as attractive as a bucket of smashed crabs. After one glass of wine….woahhhhhh mama! You better watch out. Someone’s going to be in for a surprise when they get home. Well, you’ve got to keep the fire alive somehow, and it’s a good a way as any in my book!
9. It’s cheaper than therapy
Seriously, just think of all the things you need to get off your chest! You could go and hemorrhage money sitting on a therapist’s couch…or you could just go and pour yourself a glass of wine and take the edge off.
10. It’s the only thing that makes sleep deprivation better
If you’re acting drunk because you haven’t slept properly for days on end, well then…you might as just go ahead & be the real deal!
So there you go….if you’re wondering about whether to have a glass of wine tonight & needing any convincing….here it is.
