Moms Need Caffeine

Posted in: DIY

Now you may prefer Diet Coke to Coffee or Tea to Mountain Dew, but I’m pretty positive that it is a scientific fact a mom could not survive without caffeine.  I am 100% a coffee addict.  I have been drinking it since I was a pre-teen and I’m pretty sure if not for my mom putting her foot down, Dad would have raised us with three food groups: Cookies, Meat and Coffee.  Before getting pregnant with Kade, I worked as an accountant at an investment bank in NYC and LA.  It was not uncommon for me to drink 8-10 cups of coffee a day.  I’m not saying that was good or healthy but I am saying that when I got pregnant and the doctor said I had to cut back to only 1 cup a day, that single cup of joe became very, very precious.

After Kade was born, my intake of black java goodness went up again.  Even though it wasn’t as high as before, now that I’m pregnant with Fritz, that single cup is still very precious.  My dear mom understands this!  So for Mother’s Day she sent a gift for me and my coffee addicted mommy friends.  It was an adorable kit from Sweetwater for coffee wraps and I finally got around to putting them together last week.

It’s such a great idea and really a very simple pattern, plus it gave me an excuse to practice with my new machine.  Thanks for understanding our cravings, Mom, and giving us something that helps us look great while indulging!  The next latte is on me.
