CW: topics of alcohol, alcohol abuse, binge drinking
We talk about our relationship with alcohol and how it’s changed from the time we were growing up to now that we’re in our late 30s. We discuss our families’ histories with alcohol and how so often a family member’s alcoholism is an open secret in our lives. We also unpack the rise of the “wine mom,” especially during the early days of the pandemic, and how this trope points to the ways that we fail parents and caregivers of young children and families overall.
