I used to kid myself and say that I wasn’t hooked on coffee. I would say that I only drank it for the taste, or for the warmth on a cold morning. Now, three kids into this journey and I’ve come to grips with the fact that, yeah, I’m hooked.
I still maintain that part of the draw is the taste (lots of sugar and whole milk for me please!), and the warmth that consumes me on a chilly morning, but being a mom is a hard job, and this mama needs her caffeine!
Coffee has become part of my routine each morning, as it does for many. My littlest guy, Brayden, who is 9 months old, is an early riser. He is consistently up before 6:00 am, and since it is summer break right now, the older boys still have another hour or two before their own plans for the day pull them from their slumber.
