Honestly it's the only time I have away from the hubby and kids. And it's not like I spend any money, in fact just last night I had 7 guys all buy me beers.
But last night I picked my daughter up from the game and the coach comes yelling at me how I am such a horrible parent. She said she sees my car parked at the pub and I should be watching my daughter play instead of sitting at a bar getting all liquored up.
I told her that you see one game, you see them all.
Am I right?
