A bang-up day

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.


Mexican corn cakes
Spiced shredded pork
Red beans with cotija cheese
Tequila-soaked sorbet

(Because Seis de Mayo can be just as fun as Cinco de Mayo)

  1. thanks for the laugh.

    loved hearing about your day.


    My day consists of answering the following questions AT LEAST 579 times a day:
    1. What are we doing next?
    2. Can I go to the bathroom?
    3. Can I get a drink of water?
    4. Do I have to (fill in the blank)?
