Can Kids Drink Wine???

Heeey Biiitcchheesss! It’s me, Vanessa.

So I’ve found myself in a dilemma recently. The winery has been closed for the winter break, so Griffin has been home with us every day, which has been soooo nice. Other than his workout sessions, he’s available for me and the kids. And he’s available to me after bedtime…

So Griffin was doing his workout and I was making dinner in the kitchen. The kids were playing together on the floor of the living room. I like to drink wine while I cook, and when I reached for my glass on the table, I realized it wasn’t there anymore. So I looked around for it…and couldn’t find it.

I walk into the living room, and yep, you probably see where I’m going with this. Wine ALL over the rug AND their faces.

The worst part? Little Crow said he liked it and now he asks for wine nonstop. Well, he doesn’t call it “wine”. He calls it the “good juice”.

Yes, I know…just like his grandfather.

So then we went to dinner at my parents house one night, and the kids usually get juice, but Little Crow reaches for my father’s wine glass and takes a big drink out of it like it’s a sippy cup.

You should have seen my father’s face. Never been prouder.

I’m doing my best to keep it away from him otherwise I’ll look like the worst mother ever, but I’m preeeettttty sure he’s going to take over the family business someday. Just a hunch.

Anyway, I just had to share the story with you. My father said you guys would love it but it’s too long for him to write out, so he asked me to do it.

Still working on merch for Barsetti Vineyards. We’ve got some t-shirts made and we think people are going to love them. My mom wears them when she hosts the wine tastings at the winery and people always ask if they’re for sale and we say no…and I’m like that’s the stupidest thing ever. We SHOULD have these for sale. My parents are some of the smartest people I’ve ever met, but they just don’t get with the times, you know? It’s not like I’m asking them to make a Tik Tok or something…

Anyway, I’m working on it. Hopefully we’ll have something soon!

Hope your new year is off to a good start! I’ve started running in the morning and have lost a couple pounds, so I’m sticking to my resolution! It’s hard having a husband that looks like a god…feel like I gotta keep with that fine hunk of man.
