Conversation with the Kids (or) Another Stinking Post About Coffee

I love it when the kids do things that make me laugh. 

Case in point, yesterday I was in need of an afternoon cup of coffee.

You see, I am trying to cut out the mid-morning cup of coffee in lieu of a mid afternoon cup of coffee. 

(It goes without saying that this all comes after the early morning cups of coffee.)

(Yes, I drink an ungodly amount of coffee.)

(But in my defense, the afternoon pot is only half-caff.)

As I way saying, yesterday I was hovering over the coffee pot wishing it to hurry up already  getting ready to drink a lovely, warm, cup of goodness when I could hear my kids laughing in the schoolroom. 

They began hollering Mom, this is just like you! You've got to come see this!!

They had found the Bean Me game on the Garfield website. Its basically a progression of the ornery cat as he goes from a grouchy waking-up self to his java-jolted self.

We had a good laugh, and then I spanked them and sent them to their room for telling lies.

(Just kidding. Please don't send anonymous hate comments.)

So go check out what I am really like behind this bloggy veil.

And for the record, I know I am no Limp Latte, but I assure you, I cannot possibly be a Blaster Blend either.

Click away my friends: Bean Me.

So funny! We have some coffee addiction issues in this house, too! My husband roasts his own beans. I'll have to bring some for you in October at the bloggy get together! :)

I'd say more like an Old Train Whistle or Alarm Clock. But that's just me.

Yep...they nailed you!

Tiffani said...

oh that's such a HOOT!!

Hmmm, plus you just gave me an idea for a post...

Elizabeth said...

I love that you admit to your coffee addiction. I'm still in denial!

Lily Jane said...

Heheh, I cannot imagine what it it/would be like to have kids, but I do know what it's like to be COFFEE-ADDICTED! (o_o)-[bzzzzz!]

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you beaucoup for the kind words, despite not even truly knowing me. What a gentle soul you are! /hugs

Also, I was wondering: I absolutely loved your little profile poem, and I was just wondering if I could share it on my blog (linking back to you, of course!)... I love it!

/hugs and Thanks again!

Oh, mercy. I will still love your kids even though I'm sure they're lying about you. :)

Lurved that website. I've often had mornings where I had to literally put on my face.

BTW, I'm a little perturbed. I seem to have lost my blogging mojo, and here you, post, posting away.

Maybe I need more coffee. xxooo

Coffee transformations are amazing aren't they?!

I'm thinking I need to add an afternoon cup or 2...I could use some zip.

Because I need another way to waste time.


I'm not even going to click on that game.

I am not sure your kids are telling lies....

I just MIGHT have a story about being deserted on a pier by a certain coffee gal.
