I agree. I don't drink alone, period (kids awake or not) but I want to be able to take care of them myself, and to be honest, I'd imagine seeing mama falling down drunk would be pretty scary to a little one. I'll have a drink or two if we're visiting friends (and I'm not driving) or vice versa, or maybe a beer or two at dinner and as we're getting them into bed, but I don't want them to notice any changes that could make them upset.
A happier, mellower, more patient mama after one glass of wine isn't a bad change though.
