I'm sure that subject line caught your attention!
Our first homestudy meeting is on Thursday night. My mom came over today to help me clean out the spare bedroom that will one day be our nursery and mentioned something that I hadn't really thought about before. She asked if we were going to remove the liquor from our bar area before our meeting. She says that it gives the impression that we are heavy drinkers and would be concerned about what our social worker might think. We do have a relatively well stocked bar and a good deal of wine, (we live in Northern CA - we're wine country kids!), and we definitely enjoy a cocktail, but I wouldn't say we're big partiers or heavy drinkers. What do you think? Does an out in the open bar give the wrong impression for this process? We don't want to give the wrong impression, and we also don't want to "cover up" who we are. I'll PIP below.
