Lots of things change when you become a mom.
Celebrations involving alcohol for instance. For many years, I celebrated each Cinco De Mayo, with a group of friends, on an outdoor patio of a fun Mexican restaurant/bar in New York City.
Happy hour always started extra early on Cinco de Mayo. Never-ending baskets of chips, salsa and guacamole, several margaritas, and maybe a sombrero or two, filled the evening.
The night usually ended with a tipsy walk home to my apartment, with everyone singing “Olé”!
Today, the kids and I will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo, slightly differently!
The big event? Tacos for dinner! Cue the applause. I know, I know, can you stand the excitement?
But don’t worry, I would never forget the guacamole. I could eat guacamole everyday.
And I may get crazy and have one yummy margarita too (as embarrassed as I am to admit it, it will be a Skinny Girl Margarita. Hey, don’t judge!).
So no tipsy walk home this evening, but I will still make sure we all yell -“Olé”!
Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
