the coffee shop

January 15th, 2009

i like starbucks.  okay, i love starbucks.  i am not a coffee drinker.  i know, tisk, tisk.  but, i do enjoy chai.  and starbucks, of course, has the best.

i tend to frequent their drive-thru’s vs. dragging 2 or 3 kids in with me.  last week when going through the drive-thru, wilbur asked, “do they have food in there?”

me-”yes.”

wilbur-”what kind?”

me-”well, they have cookies and cakes and breads and bagels and doughnuts.  sometimes they have sandwiches.”

wilbur-”how do you get it?”

me-”you order it.”

wilbur-”do you have to go in there to get it?”

me-”no, everything they have inside, you can order outside and they will pass it through the window.”

wilbur-”oh, okay.”

me-”would you like to go in there with me sometime so you can see everything that’s in there?”

wilbur-”yes.”

so yesterday morning, we did it.  we went into starbucks.  we took amelia to school and had mommy and sons time at the coffee shop.  i brought along some juice for the boys and ordered doughnuts for them and a chai for me.  we picked a table.  they picked their seats, and mine too.  we said a prayer.  they ate.  i drank.  we all enjoyed.

this is wilbur imitating josh’s ‘one raised eyebrow’ face.

oh, and this morning,the boys were playing with their mcdonald’s playset.  wilbur had the headset on and i overheard him say, “you’ll have a grande chai?  will that be all?”

mmmmmm….starbucks.

    So fun! My kids LOVE Starbucks! Emma, who is 3, frequently says she needs coffee (meaning hot chocolate). Here’s a tip: they sell kid’s hot chocolates or vanilla steamers for like a buck! The only catch is now EVERY time you go through the drive through, they’ll yell “AND 3 KIDS HOT CHOCOLATES!!!” But it’s so fun!!! :)

    So funny – I too love Starbucks but hate coffee. For some reason the Tazo Awake Tea tastes better when they make it in the store than when I bring the tea bags home. Maybe it’s the cup? Maybe it’s that the water is hotter? Maybe it’s just that it’s a treat:)
