How (not) to behave when out with friends

Gavin and I had a full social calendar this week, but it didn’t turn out well for either one of us.  Let’s review:

1.  Gavin

The scene:  3-year-old birthday party.

The main character: my generally junk food deprived 3-year-old child hopped up on juice, birthday cake and Laffy Taffy (thanks for heads up that those were in the gift bag, host mom!).

Drug of choice

The problem:  party begins at 5pm, non-napping child bedtime is 7:30pm.

The result:  crash by 8pm.  Body, unable to adjust to the blood sugar drop, wakes up at 4:45am.

Most embarrassing moment: singing “This is crazy, but here’s my number (holds up two fingers), so call me poopy.”

Photo that says it all:

I’m pretty sure this is exactly what he was seeing

2.  Me

The scene:  a spontaneous reunion dinner of sorts with two college roommates who live far away (Los Angeles and New Jersey – both beyond my daily travel capabilities).

The main character: my generally alcohol deprived self with a new found adoration for Prosecco.

Drug of choice

The problem:  dinner begins at 7pm, non-napping mom bedtime is 9:30.

The result:  crash by 10pm.  Body, unable to adjust to the blood sugar drop, wakes up at 5:15am.

Most embarrassing moment:  drunk tweeting Outlaw Mama demanding to know her astrological sign.

Photo that says it all:

 

Someone help us.
