AIBU to have a glass of wine?

So, it's Friday, it's 6.15pm, it's been a long week.
DD(4) has a friend over to play. My DS (2) is playing with them. Friend is due to be picked up at 6.30ish.

AIBU to have a glass of wine? I could really do with one, it is the weekend, but I'm not doing as I have another persons child in my care.

Just wondered about everyone else's opinion on this. I'm not taking about rolling around the floor out of my mind drunk, just a glass of wine. DH is here to, he is itching for a beer but I've said we should wait until the play date is over. He's been suggesting it since 5pm.

So, go for it, tell me as it is - its my first post on here after all!

I think it's fine to have a glass of wine on the go by 6.30 on a Friday. Don't get drunk before friend picks up and offer her a glass as she might like one too!

Wine has more effect than beer imo. Have a beer.

Depends on what the mum who is coming to pick up the friend is like- a couple of DD's friends mums I would open the wine and offer them a glass too when they arrive grin. Others, I'd be breaking open the organic houmous and hiding the leftover cake from dinner blush

Eh? You could still drive the car, you are certainly not going to be too drunk to care for a small child for 15 minutes!
I opened mine at 5pm, so I'm with your hubby

I would har had one at 5ish but thought I'd better not. DD is in reception so this is a 'new' friend and I'm not sure about the parents.

Go on, live dangerously hmm

It's just as well I never had any uptight friends like this back when I was still hosting playdates...

YABU and are a terrible parent and human being for that matter. You should be ashamed.

Friend has gone. Wine is poured. Friday night has arrived.

I once went to pick dd (then age 7) up from her friend's. The friend's mother was already halfcut. (2/3 of the way down a bottle of wine) and still drinking.

I hung about until her dp got in at 7 and then made my excuses.

Having said that, there's no harm in a swift one after a long week. My wine is chilling and has been all day. grin

Hey we always start at 6 pm on a Friday ! Friday is G&T whilst attempting the Times crossword ( its easier the more inebriated you become) and then wine with dinner ...its always a hard week ! Im about to pour the 2nd glass ... enjoy wine

When DD's friend came for a sleepover earlier this week DH and I had a glass or two.
I wouldn't be upset if one of DD's friends parents had a drink whilst DD was with them.
