As a parent of an elementary aged child and toddler twins I have very long entertaining days. My (recreational) basketball career is currently on hold so I’m craving sports elements more than ever these days. So I decided to create a new tournament, Whine Vs Wine. My adorable children are professionals at whining, throwing tantrums and demanding all the attention. How about yours, lol?

Furthermore, wine is so yummy and the options are in abundance. Often times people pair their food with wine so I decided to pair my children’s whines with my favorite wines. The pairings were based on their whine scale aligned with the fruit, body, sweetness or tannin and acidity in the wines.

I have to admit that I talk about wine way more than I actually consume it. Often times by the time they go to sleep, the kitchen is cleaned and 284 toys have been put away I am too exhausted to open a bottle.

So the moment, you’ve been waiting for (insert drumroll). The WINNER of the Whine Vs. Wine TOURNAMENT is…FAMILY!!!!! The quality time we spend together is truly amazing. Whining is part of their development, how they communicate and some of it is kind of cute. There is also a great wholesale wine store near our house.

Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!
