Lets talk about Coffee. . .
Truth be told - I was never much of a coffee drinker. I enjoyed a cup here or there, and the occasional Starbucks coffee as well. But it never did anything for me. As a person with ADD, it shouldn't do much for me.
I was always told that when I'd have kids, coffee would become my best friend.
I never believed them. Because well, coffee has never done anything for me.
They were right. For the most part.
We've always had a coffee pot. . . And we've had the same thing of coffee in our house for a while now. Why I bought a big ol' can of it, I still have no idea. But we're going through it now. When ever my parents come, they always make coffee in the morning. But again, I just was never into it.
Until about 3 weeks ago.
When I started on a morning routine with Emmersyn, where sleeping in until 10 am was no longer an option. . . I started making coffee in the morning. The first day I had a cup of coffee with breakfast in the morning - I was full of energy. I got so much done, was in a great mood and thus - Had a fantastic day. All because of a simple cup of coffee. Amazing.
Now, most mornings, when giving Emmersyn her breakfast I sit at the table with her drinking my coffee and eating my breakfast. I haven't been on any of my ADD meds since I got pregnant as they weren't safe during pregnancy & breastfeeding - And I just don't feel like I need them any more. So coffee gives me that bit of caffeine that was in my meds that kick my butt into gear every day. I only drink it during the week, though, when I am alone with the baby all day while DH is working. He isn't much of a coffee drinker, either, so I don't bother with it on the weekends.
I like my coffee sweet. I use Hazelnut creamer and sugar. Mmm Mmmm! I make a fresh pot every other day, since it's just me drinking it. I most defiantly prefer fresh coffee - But I am not gonna waste it so I'll just heat it up in the microwave the second day.
