10 Reasons Mommy Loves Wine

Mommy needs a glass...

This post is brought to you by Markham 2005 Petit Verdot 

So some crazy lady posed as me and wrote a post about breaking up with wine a while back!  Do not be alarmed, I have found said crazy person and contained her in a bottle with a good cork.  To cabernet, I mean commemorate my love of wine (proven by the fact that I have drank it 10 times in the last two weeks) I want to share with all of you some of the many reasons why I love wine: 

  1. All I have to do is un-cork a bottle to erase the longest of days.
  2. I don’t have to share it with my kids (unless I want them to sleep better).
  3. I feel sophisticated when I swirl it my glass (and I feel like a dumb-ass when it spills out).
  4. Wine goes good with my one true love: food.  Yes, any food.
  5. Wine and chocolate.  Period.
  6. Wine is complex, temperamental and will spoil if not cared for properly, just like me.
  7. The antioxidants in wine make me a better mom – it’s science people!
  8. Wine gets better with age, just like moms and children.
  9. Having a glass of wine to cope sounds more civilized than drinking rubbing alcohol.
  10. Wine doesn’t talk back, wet the bed or throw temper tantrums!

Cheers!

    Absolutely! The foresaking of wine should never be done in haste. Like you, I enjoy a glass (or two). Recently, I’ve been on a self-imposed dry spell in an attempt to get my eating habits under control. I cannot wait to be back in the arms of my friends Cabernet, Malbec and Syrah.

      Lisa – I do the self-imposed dry spells from time to time too, for the same reasons. It seems wine is quickly followed by sweets for me! 😉 The nice thing about the wine gang is that they will always welcome you back no matter how long you’re away! 😉
