1. Helpful parenting tip #39: that if you put some bubble bath in the tub with your kid, not only are you exempt from washing said kid with soap and a washcloth, but you can also consider the bath tub deep cleaned for the week.
2. Prayer time:
Vincenzo: Please, God, help me to get the coin at Chuck E. Cheese to go through the right Ferris wheel at the right time so that I can win 100 tickets again.
Kevin: Can I give you a tip on praying? You’re supposed to pray for…well…like people who are sick or things you are thankful for.
Me: And feelings. God is very good at helping with feelings, like if you’re frustrated with something, or mad, or sad…
Kevin: Want to try again?
Vincenzo: [nodding] …And please, God, let that sword for 1,000 tickets still be at Chuck E. Cheese because I know sometimes they change out the prizes on the wall…
3. Up until recently, when I’ve asked Vincenzo our phone number he’s answered with any amount of random numbers. I decided it was time he learned it, so we’ve been playing some games to help him do so. After a week of this, I decided to ask again.
Me: Vincenzo, what number does our phone number start with?
4. Here’s Rocco, auditioning for his role as Mr. T.
(And yes, that is a TP tube and TP tube holder he’s playing with. Props to me.)
