I can't believe that I am admitting this to you, dear readers, but when I reach the point of fatigue that cannot be kicked, and there is no time for bed/nap/sleep in sight...and when five cups of joe just don't do the trick...(if you are a parent than I know you've been here)...I occasionally resort to this...

Terrible? Check.
Filled with sugar? Check.
Weakens my immune system to an unimaginable degree? Check.
Helps me to be a more charitable, loving, energetic mother for the last four hours of the afternoon and evening before my Mister (A.K.A. my hero/my knight in shining armor/the best husband ever) returns? Check. Check. Check.

Well, today is one of those days.

Sometimes it's a matter of charity people.

 Cheers! ; )


  1. Oh Bernadette! This made me laugh so hard! Sometimes a mother has to do what a mother has to do! I think it is quite charitable indeed!!

  2. Sometimes a little "pick me up" in the afternoon is VERY necessary! Actually, MOST days it is necessary ;-) . I prefer Diet Coke or Mountain Dew myself, but those difficult hours between the end of naptime and dinner can be the toughest of the day!

  3. A-MEN, sister. I'm not a fan of soda, but coffee: YES. I maintain that it makes me a better mom.

  5. *Blush* ...and some people have called me "crunchy"...tisk tisk. :/ I'm so relieved that you can relate! ;)

  6. Let's be "crunchy" together, shall we?! Oh, too funny!

  7. So with you - I really love the "Cherry' version, too!

  8. oooooh! Happy thought! I haven't tried Cherry yet but I LOVE cherry Pepsi and Coke so I bet I'd LOVE it!

    I miss reading your blog. <3
