Here’s an sampling from A Day in the Life of MrsMouthy.
8:00AM: Vincenzo wakes up and emerges from my room carrying my crutch that he slept with. I tell him good morning and he shoots me with it.
9:00AM: Drop Vincenzo off at school. Realize that it’s the well-advertised “Mud Day” and I sent him to school in white pants.
10:00AM: Spend a half hour on the floor, watching this:
11:30: Pick Vincenzo up from school then head to the liquor store with both kids where Vincenzo asks a lot of questions I don’t have answers for.
12:00: Vincenzo eats his grilled cheese sandwich into the shape of a gun. When I ask him to clear his dishes, he shoots me with it.
1:00: Vincenzo yells from the hallway, “Look Mom! I’m riding the baby!”
2:00: Look through family pictures with the boys. Vincenzo finger-shoots all the pictures of Rocco that pop up.
3:00: I go to counseling where I spend an inordinate amount of time discussing how Petit Fours are destroying our family (yet I fail to bring up all the shooting).
5:00: Kevin comes home and Rocco claps his feet in excitement so much it sounds like applause.
5:01: Kevin gets shot by Vincenzo.
6:00: We cook dinner. Vincenzo whines that the house stinks and tells us never to cook that again.
8:00: Bedtime. Vincenzo prays, “Thank you God for giving me the power to change into any animal I want. And for parks.”
8:01: Kevin and I go to bed. He asks me how my day was. I shoot him.
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Mexican corn cakes
Spiced shredded pork
Red beans with cotija cheese
(Because Seis de Mayo can be just as fun as Cinco de Mayo)
