    Family of alcoholics over here
    My mum, my MIL, my FIL, my BIL, my DH.

    There is no alcohol at our kids parties because our family of alcoholics do not stop at 1-2. They do not understand that children's parties are for the children.
    Any alcohol brought to my house gets tipped out.





    Fighting a losing battle with auto correct Americanizing my spelling!!!!

    Fair enough. But the way you said it could very easily be misconstrued. Maybe just something to keep in mind

    But some people may not have "worked" that out...

    Sorry for breaking it down?!?

    I am not a chip-on-the-shoulder type person, I very rarely get offended or take things out of context.

    What was said could VERY easily be taken the wrong way and basically i felt that ICanDream was being ganged up on and wanted to show that I can see how she took the comment the way she did. Regardless of what the poster actually meant, it could very easily be misinterpreted.

    Take a chill pill!

    Oh exactly... Things can be taken the wrong way so easily & if by chance you're that person you then get jumped on...

    There's a big difference between expecting alcohol to be served at a child's party and someone who doesn't expect it, but enjoying it when the host offers.

    I would never expect alcohol at a kids party. If its there great, if it's not great - I won't drink anyway as I'm usually the driver...

    We feel the same, It's funny we had DS first birthday party last week at a park and I said to DH that morning should we get beer/wine and he said I don't know are you suppose to drink at kids parties and I said I'm not sure! ( it was more adults than kids) So we bought 1 case of beer and 2 bottles of wine and only 4 beers were drank and wine stayed unopened !
