So what changed? How did I go from non-coffee drinker to coffee dependent? As I mentioned, it happen after I had my third daughter. She was born exactly two weeks before my oldest daughter started kindergarten. My middle one started preschool three days a week just a couple weeks after that. Admittedly, it was a pretty tough time for me.
Having a newborn is a HUGE change all by itself. Throw in two more kids, a rocky start to kindergarten, some postpartum emotions and, well, I was a mess. I needed something - anything - for a little extra boost to survive those days. Hence, my coffee addiction was born.
This post was inspired by a prompt in A Place To Start, an e-book written by my blog friend Tricia of Raising Humans. I received the book for free when I signed up for her monthly newsletter and you can, too! Just head over to her blog and sign up!
