I never really understood the obsession with moms and coffee.
And then I became a mom!
I don't know if it is the caffeine boost or it's just that one little thing that we do for ourselves but it is definitely needed by every single mother I know! I don't know if I could mother properly until I have had my first sip. Joking. But not really.
Now when I first had my son I would bring him to the trendy local baristas and sip my coffee as he slept in the carseat. So peaceful! Fast forward to a year and life with a busy toddler and that trendy coffee shop is not toddler proof or relaxing at all! I would leave these trendy shops completely exhausted from chasing my son around trying to make sure he didn't break the coffee mugs that were so conveniently placed at toddler eye level or rearrange 100 bags of coffee that were on a toddler accessible shelf.
Then I had a playdate at a McDonalds and my eyes were open to the wonderfulness of the McCafe experience! I can get my small caramel macchiato for only 2 bucks. And I even get rewarded with a free McCafe drink after I buy 5 if I download their app! What?!!! Giving the gift of delicious coffee to a sleep deprived mom is the best gift ever. Someone give the person a promotion who thought of that genius idea!
So give up on those trendy not-so-relaxng and never-has-a-changing-table coffee shops and head over to McDonalds and try one of their new McCafe beverages such as the caramel macchiato or the Pumpkin Spice and make sure to download that app and start earning free McCafe drinks.
