The most we have is 1-2 drinks each so perfectly safe to drive. If we are out hubby might have 3-4 and I'll drive after only having one if that.

dh & I don't drink a lot anymore, and I don't drink anything when I'm pregnant or breastfeeding, so I haven't drank any alcohol since I got pregnant with DD 2 1/2 years ago, so I guess I'm speaking hypothetically. I personally (only speaking about what is right for me, not for anyone else!), do not feel comfortable with the idea of us both drinking when we are responsible for our children. I would not be happy with a babysitter drinking whilst caring for my children, and as an ex school teacher and child care worker, I would not feel comfortable with drinking and being responsible for children myself. I know so much can go wrong so easily, and I want to always be alert and 100% with my full senses, and able to look after my children to my full ability. I am happy for one of us to drink and the other not, or both of us to drink if we have DD cared for by someone, but I would never have both of us drink and be responsible for caring for our children at the same time.
****this is just me personally - I do not judge other people who DO feel comfortable drinking and looking after their children. Particularly because I rarely drink, I don't trust the affect that alcohol has on my body - other people may trust their abilities 100% when they are drinking, which is great for them

DF and I don't drink anymore. But when we did one of us would always stay sober so one could drive or tend to the kids.
I would feel extremely irresponsible if I had to rely on someone else in the case of an emergency because I'd been drinking.

I never drink at home, and it's rare that I go out these days drinking, so I am always sober at home. My husband doesn't get drunk at home either, he occasionally has a beer or two after work, but that's it.

If we're driving somewhere one of us absolutely stays sober enough to drive. Generally that is one or two drinks for DH and none for me. While I drink regularly i don't like to have any alcohol and drive.

I tend to save my big drinking nights for when they are with their dad though.

My dp ad I haven't drank together yet, so I don't know what would happen, we don't live toether anyway...
But when ex and I would go out to friends'/family for bbqs etc unless we were staying the night I couldn't drink (and when I was pregnant of course too) because my ex never had his license anyway so I was always the designated driver.
I wouldn't drink if my kids were unwell though, but I always have a back-up plan anyway...

we dont drink to the point of getting drunk, let alone if our kids were with us.
for us its a non issue, as Im pregnant, and probably wont have a drink again until bellyfruit is sleeping long stretches, and dh doesnt drink if I cant.
