Coffee Talk

Over a family dinner...

Sarah (a la Frank Luntz): "Raise your hand if you like cappucino."
[No hands raised.]

Sarah (with increasing curiosity): "Raise your hand if you like frappucino."
[Hands raised in sugar-appreciating response.]

Darren (with measured, deliberate mischief): "Raise your hand if you like crap-pucino!
[No hands raised, and laughter poorly suppressed.]

Life without coffee is just not worth it. I have felt this way for a long time. When I am getting crabby my son says, "Mommy, do you need coffee?" What a wise 3 year old!

As a sufferer of chronic insomnia, daytime hypersomnia, and sleep apnea I would not exist without caffeine. Diet Coke is my dark morning drink of choice, especially the Diet Coke from McDonalds...Coke seriously tastes better at McDs! On days I consume more than 100oz of cola, I just have to forgive myself. It's better than falling asleep driving or at work.

My son declares most holidays ad "happy Yucky Day". His celebration? He states "I poop on you!". I guess that would be a yucky day.....

James & Emma are just starting to get more words now, but Emma likes to say, "Oh fudge!" but the last consonant sounds doesn't come out very clear and it sounds like she's hollering a totally different f-word!

hahahaha!! that's great!

Mine isn't too funny...but I am working on how I talk (meaning four letter words I use) because my kids are repeating..especially Little Lily. So, instead of S**t..i say Aww! Poop! Well, now my son says that...the other day I asked him if he wouldn't use the word poop..and he said..ok..later I heard "oh, S**T!" Oh wow! I think Poop is all rihgt from now on...LOL

We are struggling with the new favorite words, "poop" and "underpants" in our all boy house...amazing how they are just about the funniest two words every uttered...

Lol! Mine is not as funny as Darren's perfect comment but my 3 year old nephew, when we took him out with us for dinner requested a cappuccino as his dessert. He leaned back and instead of shouting cake or brownie or icecream like the other children he calmly pondered it, said "I think I'll go with a cappuccino" to the stunned waitress and then nodded as if this was a normal thing. Granted we didnt let him have it but good story to tell :)

Switched to decaf lately but oh how I love my coffee. I LOVE caramel macchiatos (and they are available in decaf)

Darren's crap-ucino joke - hilarious! Love it!

Is it bad that I knew where this was going by the time I saw *frap*? LOL!

My wonderfully humorous two year old daughter is now prone to lifting a leg before she toots and also giving you fair warning with an "excuse me" before the doom happens. By then I NEED a strongly caffeinated drink.
