Today's Perk of Being a Mama - You Get Coffee Mama?
Through the first 27ish weeks of this pregnancy, I had really bad morning sickness (granted, it DID get a little better each week). Through the first two trimesters, the only thing that seemed to settle my tummy was this delicious tea from Starbucks.
Well, I was sick several times a week for a long time - so on the way to taking Christopher to school, I would frequently find myself in the Starbucks drive-thru ($4 a visit? Who cares - I needed to settle my tummy, right?!). Christopher would always ask what we were doing, I explained we were getting coffee (he doesn't get what TEA is yet, coffee is just easier to explain).
As everyone knows, Starbucks puts some random addictive chemical in all of their products. Now that I am no longer sick, I should stop going - but does that stop my car from driving up to the order window at the same (or maybe even increased) frequency as the days of morning sickness? UM, no.
Sadly, because of my addiction, whenever we drive by a Starbucks and don't stop, Christopher says: "You get coffee mama? You get coffee?!" He recognizes the darn logo!
