There are so many days where I make myself a cup of nice warm coffee and plan on drinking it that way. Well that plan quickly fails with all my to-do lists I make and all the chasing around the house I have to do.
Warm coffee is a luxury that most take for granted. To just sit in silence in the comforting arm-chair or in a local coffee shop would be every coffee mom’s dream! No little minions running around and no screaming.
However we have to deal with that because we are MOM! Like I said I let my coffee go cold and stale because I forget to either drink it in the madness of the day or so busy that by the time I get to take a sip the warmth left. There was one day that I was so busy I went to reheat my coffee in the microwave and found my cup of coffee from earlier that day. I had forgotten to take it out of the stupid microwave and poured me a new cup that once again ran cold.
I enjoy coffee, it’s my life line, my go to when I need it. I am an avid mug collector, I love mugs which is perfect for my coffee addiction. When I don’t have a cup in the morning I don’t feel like I’m doing my best, either that or it runs cold and tasteless. I am not a morning person so I don’t wake up nearly as early as I should to enjoy me time. My me time is either nap time or bed time.
But here is the bright side to cold coffee that I’m sure no one stop to think about. That cold cup means you took the time to straighten the house so it wasn’t a mess, took time to play with the kids, took time to pack lunches and wash dishes! That cold cup means you would rather sacrifice your “you time” and be mom! You would rather your kids enjoy moments with you than you enjoying a nice coffee.
Being Mom is stinking hard we cook, clean, play nurse, be a chief, and many more. We don’t get 15 minute coffee breaks and if we do we are lucky!
Another bright side to a cold cup is turning it into iced coffee! It saves me money from buying the cold brew when I go food shopping (what we call grocery shopping).
As I sit and watch my three Jedi’ s in training having fun and playing today I remembered my coffee that I let run cold because I took time to play with them. I took time to enjoy life than enjoy the luxury of a hot, vanilla creamer filled, sugar added coffee.
So I urge you put down that warm cup no matter how delicious it tastes and enjoy the house work and the fun times. If you wake up early to enjoy a cup, well lucky you beautiful!
