Out With Mommy
By: K. Pearson Brown
Went to the Her HRC soirée in Hollywood last night and had a great time meeting lots of nice women, like Kim Hoke, an up-and-coming stand-up comedienne, and her personal trainer girlfriend Tanya, and the lovely Christina Buie (see pic below). We’re already Facebook friends this morning!
Thing is, I never go out anymore. Since I became a mom, it’s a major undertaking to go out. Last night we couldn’t get a sitter, so Kira stayed home with Stephen and I went with my friend Jame. Just as well, because by the time we pay a sitter, pay for valet, pay for the cover charge and a couple drinks, we’re up to $100.
So I joked with my new friends how I haven’t danced in five years and I have a drink about once every six months. Last night was my night to do both. Got home before midnight (the time I used to just be heading out) and I was so buzzed from one strong drink that I had bed spins.
Ugh! I couldn’t sleep all night, and it didn’t help that Stephen woke up around 1:30 am and I had to put him back to bed, and then I lay awake until 4 am and then just gave up trying to get any shut-eye.
It’s one o’clock in the afternoon, and I am still HUNGOVER from one vodka and cranberry.
Luckily I had the nanny today, because it’s been raining non-stop since yesterday and I just don’t know how playful I could be with Stephen today when I feel like a college kid who just pulled an all-nighter with back-to-back Midnight Madness parties. Did I really used to do that? Every weekend? And I survived???
