  1. One problem When mom and dad went out to dinner we had to stay home with Nonna or my oldest sister – the only thing i got was the plastic swords from the martini olive’s❗️ 🇨🇮😂🇨🇮 the rest is spot on

  2. Very true and very funny. I grew up with an American mother and an Italian (Neapolitan) father in Napoli. For the first 23 years of my life, living in Italy, I recall doing all the things you mentioned and some…:). Those days are long gone but they will be in my heart forever ❤️♥️❤️
