We’re back after our fantastic trip to Italy. So grateful to have had the opportunity to do this with Rich, Victoria, and Joseph. Check out my Instagram @officialkathywakile for my photo journal. I apologize for being really late with my blog entry; traveling with time change overseas really throws you for a loop, but we were super excited to be back in our home in Jersey. It is great to go away, but always better to come back ‘cause there’s no place like home!
Now on to the episode:
It put a smile on my face to see Teresa, Melissa, Joe, and Joe and all the kids together. Go forward; it’s about building a whole bunch of new happy memories. It totally reminded me of when we all as cousins used to play and hang out, and we shared a lot of first things together. Those childhood memories keep us bonded together, no matter what! So it was nice to see that the younger generations are the same and still have that natural unconditional love and affection! So, so happy for all of them!
The Gorga-Giudice Dinner
Caroline sharing her conversations with her kids about life and getting older is one that is hard to have. There always comes a time in your life where you finally realize your kids are adults and no longer children, but in some ways they will always be your babies. So it’s a bittersweet moment when you have to make the leap to discuss those things. I especially relate, since I know I’m not far behind. When it comes our kids, I think that we are very similar. Caroline is very direct and has no problem communicating head on with anyone.
A Mother's Role
It was quite a fun experience to go clubbing to search for singles with my sister Rosie where, in addition to some singles, we ran into a few swingers! I have to say yes, I am a bit protective when it comes to Rosie, because she deserves the best! I want her to find that eternal love, a soul-mate, someone to be with and share life’s ups and downs. You know, the whole pie and not just a slice! I was lucky to find that early in my life, and I want her to find it too. And if I’m being honest here, I will always step in if I see someone trying to take advantage of my little sister. Rosie is my first best friend in life and that will never change.
Rosie is Not DTF!
