Coffee Date

Recently we attended a church event where both Avi and Tucker won Starbucks gift cards. Unlike a lot of nine and ten years olds, these two were thrilled with their prize. Both have been eagerly waiting their turn to go out for coffee.

Despite have Apollo wake up vomiting (in my bed…of course) we managed our coffee date after dropping of Mordecai for camp. It was just the two of us. We discussed beverage options ahead of time (this kid loves coffee) and how to order. Tucker settled on a Tall Mocha with Whip.

  1. I love this. My daughter learned to count scooping coffee . The first word she spelled out (looking at the sign) was Starbucks. Her love is cakepops. At four I think she’s a bit too young for coffee yet.

      We often let the kids have coffee on Sunday morning as a treat. Apollo (5) doesn’t drink it, but several of the kids (Tucker, Kalina, Jubilee) love it.

  2. That Tucker is one handsome kid! Do you cut his hair? It looks awesome!

      Yes, I cut everyone’s hair (except for mine). Thanks!

  3. I have been meaning to leave you this link since I read your entry about Apollo’s gtube disconnecting at night.
    This family invented the mold to stop such a problem. Maybe it will help you with the overnight feeds?
