When you think about it, parenting is just a series of small victories. When you're new to the game, or new to a stage, like the toddler stage, it's easy to feel like everyone is doing everything right but you. Just remember, there's no such thing as the perfect mom, just an excellent liar.
I'm a firm believer in celebrating the small victories. Who cares if your kid can't read or refuses to sign anything but "more purple," whatever the f*** that's supposed to mean? Did your kid refrain from painting his room with the contents of his diaper? Then you deserve a drink.
If you're breastfeeding, or still have a low tolerance from being a nine-month-long designated driver, don't worry. While it's great to celebrate little triumphs, let's be honest here — no one's getting wasted with this one. All you need to participate is a toddler and a cup to put one of these great fall-inspired cocktails into. Remember, no one can judge you if it's in a Starbucks cup.
