For You! Free Coffee Mate That I Can't Have


When I was pregnant with Violet I drank coffee.  Not all the time, mind you.  Not even a lot of the time.  Sometimes.  And it tasted goooood.

I’m not regularly a coffee drinker.  I go through phases.  And then I switch to tea and then I go without.

Serge dilutes his coffee with sugar and milk until it tastes like birthday cake.  Seriously.

I bought Serge a French coffee press for his birthday in December.  He immediately set to brewing up some Starbucks Christmas Blend and it smelled so good I had to try some.  The minute – no, the second – the coffee hit my stomach it revolted and came right back up.  Like, I barely made it to the bathroom.

Thinking that may have just been a bad morning, and craving a taste of coffee fresh from the French press, I got to brewing more a few days later.  I mixed in a lot of milk and took a swallow.  Mmmmmm… Tasted good.  So I took a sip and another and another.  And then…  I puked it all up.

I think it’s safe to say this kid doesn’t like coffee.  At least not yet.  Not until his dad shows him how to make it taste like birthday cake, anyway.

It is with great sadness that I can’t take advantage of the free bottle of Coffee Mate being offered.  All you’ve got to do is go like Coffee Mate on Facebook and you’ll get your coupon.

And hey. If you’re busy buying up stuff for the little one you’re expecting, free is a sexy word in your household, right?
