Caffeine? Yes (please)

We roll through the drive-thru lane at Dunkin’ Donuts, and Daytime Dad asks for the usual – an iced coffee, decaf, and with milk only.

At the window, Little One subtly – OK, there was nothing subtle about it – tells the Dunkin lady what he would like.

“Coffee!” he screams. “I want a coffee!”

Great idea! If there’s anything Little One needs, it’s a shot in the arm.

 “You want a coffee?” Daytime Dad says.

“YES! YES!” Little One responds. “Coffee is good.”

(Note: Daytime Dad has never given Little One coffee and mom doesn’t drink the stuff. So, he’s either lying or someone pulled a fast one. I’m going with the latter. Paging grandparents … ).

One of Daytime Dad’s favorite sports expressions is “go big or go home.”

“Why stop there?” Daytime Dad says. “How about a double espresso? Or, better yet, a triple? They do those here, right?”

“YEAH!” screams Little One. “I want a ‘press oh.’”

Daytime Dad and Little One leave Dunkin’ Donuts. The coffee was great, and Little One thoroughly enjoyed his … apple juice.

“Maybe next time,” Daytime Dad says, “or, better yet, in 15 years.”

    Nice to see the blog up and running. Thank you for the retweet yesterday, and for including Cute Potato on your blog roll!

    This is a fun post. My little guy loves to make coffee with me in the morning, and regularly asks to smell the cup once the coffee is poured. I wonder if I’m fostering future caffeine addiction.

    In the mean time, look forward to seeing you on FB.
