For Part two my series, How to… be an imperfect parent, successfully, here is my secret to sticking to just one cup of coffee a day!
Step 1: Wake up earlier than your Toddler to enjoy a fresh, hot cup of coffee.
Step 2: Enjoy one glorious sip of that fresh, hot cup of coffee.
Step 3: Have Toddler wake up earlier than they should after just one sip of that fresh, hot cup of coffee.
Step 4: Set hot cup of coffee down to retrieve Toddler.
Step 5: Forget about cup of coffee for a very long time because, Toddler.
Step 6: Remember cup of coffee and reheat in microwave.
Step 7: Actually have a few sips of the coffee.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 5-7 several more times throughout the day.
Step 9: Do one long, final reheat in the microwave to make it super hot because you for real swear this time you’ll drink this cup of coffee, hot.
Step 10: Toddler…
Step 11: Open up microwave at 4:55pm to heat up Toddler’s dinner and find the cup of coffee you forgot you put in there four hours ago.
Step 12: Chug down final sips of cold cup of coffee.
Step 13: Replace with wine because it’s now 5:00.
