Yes, that’s right… we go to bed tired and wake up even more tired. That’s being a parent. Well, it’s being a parent in our house, anyway. Good thing we have coffee, right? We pick coffee from 7-Eleven because they get their coffee form coffee-growers who are Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means that the coffee comes entirely from farms that meet strict standards designed to protect the environment.
Today, I’m working with 7-Eleven to share the reasons that we can’t wait for that first-morning coffee.
Here are 10 reasons that we wake up even more tired:
1- Someone’s blanket came off in the middle of the night, but instead of fixing it, they came to get us to do it.
2- Bathroom break at 2:00 am.
3- Bathroom break for the kids at 3:00 am.
4- You stayed up until 1:00 am to watch a movie. Was it good? Not really. Were you tired? Yes. Did you love the fact that no one was asking you to change the channel, turn it up or down, or had a bite of your ice cream while you watched? Yes.
5- Someone had a bad dream, and it’s too dark in their room to fall back asleep.
6- It rained. Thunderstorms will put parents to sleep, but will wake kids up.
7- Someone wet the bed and needed their sheets changed at 5:30 am.
8-You are whooped from running a marathon earlier that day. Not a real one…. just the day in the life of a parent type of marathon. You know the ones: two birthday parties in one day, coaching a soccer game and a football game, family dinner with your in-laws, etc…
9- Someone heard a scary noise… just tell them it was just the furnace turing on.
10- I was cold because someone (not mentioning any names) took all of the blankets.
Luckily, there is some help for this. Every single morning. It’s called coffee. I like to run to 7-Eleven for a little pick-me-up bright & early.
We work from home, so one of us will drop the kids off at school and swing by the 7-Eleven for coffee for both of us. They have a lot of different coffee blends and flavors, but my favorite is Nicaragua Matagalpa Single-Origin coffee (it’s new). It’s a full-bodied medium-dark roast that delivers a rich and robust flavor with a hint of chocolate.
We know that as parents our lives are always a little hectic & busy. Some days and nights are even busier than others. No matter what, we can always count on 7-Eleven to start our day off on the right foot. Anytime we want a premium cup of coffee, without the premium price we can run to our nearest 7-Eleven.
