My Facebook feed is full of jokes and memes about kicking back with a few drinks to relieve the stress of parenting. There's the one about how "the most expensive part of raising kids is how much the wine costs" or the one with the tired-looking woman who says, "I'm going to start cleaning my house. And by cleaning, I mean drinking wine and spraying everything with Febreeze."
I laugh even though I don't drink alcohol. And I don't drink because I'm in recovery. It turns out there are plenty of other signs that you're a mom in recovery that have little or nothing to do with actually imbibing spirits.
