How Cinco De Mayo Celebrations Have Changed With Parenthood




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!
