A new all-time low

At any moment the ground is going to open up and swallow me. I just snuck into my child's room and took money out of her piggy bank for my Starbucks fix. WHAT KIND OF SICK AND TWISTED PERSON AM I? There is no justification for this although I do feel the need to tell you that Mia didn't earn the money (her grandparents give her change every time they see her) and she won't even notice (or care) that it is gone. But still. You might be wondering what drove me to this pit of despair. While I am partially to blame, I am putting part of this on the Starbucks corporation for opening a brand new shiny Starbucks in my neighborhood within walking distance of my house (as if I actually walk to it). And because I have already visited my new all-too-local Starbucks more times this month than I want my husband to know about, I had made a promise to myself that I wasn't going to put any more Starbucks charges on the check card this week. So to the piggy bank I went....
I will not blame you if you never speak to me again. But in case you do want to find me (to tell me what a bad person I am) I will be at the Starbucks on Memorial.

Think of it this way. You need coffee to get you through the day because, let's face it - two kids will wear you down fast. Mia was just paying for your coffee today because she loves you. And you can pay her back double later.

Just call me the Justifier.

That is great! I love it! I told myself I wouldn't buy any trail mix this week...so instead I made my own version...so technically...Mia will not know until she can read...so no worries!

I will probably spend millions on Coke products before my life is over. (The soda, not the narcotic)

Well, really, now that the pumpkin spice latte is back (not to mention the peppermint hot chocolate), who can blame you?

No, no, it's an even exchange- a happy, caffeinated Mommy in exchange for piggy bank money. Your kids are lucky there's a Starbucks in your neighborhood! Great, now I want to go to Starbucks. (I realize that we don't know each other so I feel strange commenting but laughed out loud about this so I had to.)
