I know it’s no secret that my days are mostly fueled by coffee. My husband thinks I rely on my morning cup of coffee way too much but hey, we all have our things right? But when I sit down and think about how crazy my mornings typically are, my morning coffee helps ease me into my day.

Let’s take a look at my typical morning shall we.

Mornings Fueled by McCafé

5:45 am: Little one crawls into bed. As I drift back to sleep his little face is in mine. “Can we go downstairs and play now, Mommy?”

6:00 am: Husband gets ready for work and takes the children (who are up entirely too early) downstairs and get them settled until I roll out of bed.

6:15 am: Little one crawls into bed with me…again. This time he’s asking for me to come down. I ask him to give me 10 minutes.

6:50 am: Wake up startled because I swear I didn’t mean to fall back asleep. I stumble down the steps to two children sitting nicely on the couch watching a show.

6:52 am: Brew the very first cup of coffee for the day. Stand patiently at the coffee machine until cup is filled!

6:58 am: First cup is done and the second cup is brewing. I think I am almost human, now.

7:00 am: Empty the dishwasher and load it again while coffee is brewing. Ask the kids what they want for breakfast.

7:10 am: Breakfast is on the table for the kids and I can sit down and enjoy my second cup of coffee.

7:12 am: Remember that there’s a load of laundry in the washer…wet. Run down to re-wash so I don’t get behind on laundry…again.

7:15 am: Sit down again with my coffee. Oldest asks for more syrup.

7:25 am: Reheat coffee that is now cold and clean up the breakfast table.

7:45 am: Get the kids dressed and ready for school. After they ask for the 1,000th time, let them play a video game until it’s time to leave.

8:05 am: Pack oldest’s lunch and make sure his backpack is ready. Contemplate making another cup of coffee now or when I get back from school drop off.

8:10 am: Little one has accident and need to get him dressed…again.

8:15 am: Tell everyone to put on their coats and shoes.

8:17 am: Tell everyone to put on their coats and shoes.

8:20 am: Yell at everyone to put on their coats and shoes.

8:22 am: Finally out the door and ready to drop them both off at school. Remember I left my third cup of coffee on the coffee machine.

8:50 am: Come home to a quiet house and a cold cup of coffee.

8:55 am: Sit down on the couch with a warm cup of coffee and enjoy the silence.

9:15 am: Head to Walmart (because it’s Thursday) and find they are handing out samples of McCafé coffee. Jack. Pot.

McCafé coffee, which I found at Walmart, is made with 100% Arabica Beans and harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world. There are 8 flavors to choose from (my favorite is the Breakfast blend) and are available in either premium bags or coffee pods.
