Being a mom is thinking coffee makes you a better mother.

Whenever we move, I always pack the coffee pot in the front seat with me. Nobody is allowed to touch it or carry it into the new house. It's mine. All mine. I bring it in, plug it up, and make sure there's some ground coffee ready to go for the next morning. I might not be able to find my toothbrush for days, but as long as I have my coffee the world will be a better place.

Fess up. How many cups, or dare I say Pots, of coffee do you have each day? Do you sometimes find your coffee cup 1/2 full sitting in odd places like your closet because you got distracted when a child said, "Mommy, come see what Hudson just did"? I lost my coffee cup one time and found it 2 days later in the microwave from when I heated up leftover coffee one afternoon. I used to be a purist and never, never, ever heat up leftover coffee. It always had to be fresh. That was back in the day when I only had a dog to care for. Now I'll just take it however, whenever I can get it. And as my mother says about my coffee, "That coffee can walk," meaning I like it strong.

Like maybe 3 cups. But they are LARGE cups.
This is probably why my 7 month old never ever sleeps

I can easily do three pots in the winter--one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and the last at night. These days (97 out right now) I can get by with 2 cups in the morning, and one at night. And I have found that I'm right current in drinking my coffee cold. Don't have to stop by Starbuck's or McD's for a cold coffee, it can be found in the school room, or where ever else I was when I started with a hot cup, got distracted, and found the cold cup to finish off an hour later.

Thanks, Angel, you always give me things to think about!

Sadly, I am not a coffee purist. About a third of every cup is Hazlenut creamer. BUT, I do take about four cups a day: two in the morning, and two during that afternoon slump. No wonder I haven't lost that fifteen pounds from my last pregnancy! Can't drink it cold and it has to be fresh. That is one area where I choose to be a snob.
