I am not one that celebrates a bunch on New Year's Eve. I never really have been. For me, it's simply another night. I am not certain if we are doing anything tonight, but whatever we do I will spend it with my wonderful husband and and my darling children. . . and possibly a bottle of Brico Riello.
As I think about all the festivities that are happening tonight I pray that if a woman is pregnant or could possibly be pregnant she does not TOAST the New Year. I know, most would think, "One drink really couldn't hurt could it?" Why, yes, yes it could. Please tell anyone and everyone you know tonight about the dangers of drinking while pregnant. It is not worth the 2 minutes of enjoyment toasting the dropping-of-the-ball or an entire evening of inebriation to spend a lifetime regretting the harm you may have done to your child. And you know what, if you ask a mother of a child effected by Fetal Alcohol, it's worth pissing off a friend on New Years Eve to tell them not to drink while pregnant. . . I swear they will thank you later.
Today is my birthday. I am 36
