1. Coffee – Ok do I need to say more? Oh you beautiful thing you! Warm and sweet (because half of it is creamer) and just the perfect start to the day. Who needs sleep when you have coffee, its basically the perfect alternative. I really think as moms we survive on half coffee, half goldfish picked out of the carpet. How could I live without it? It is a pretty important staple when your loading your two screaming kids in the car at 6am on Thanksgiving day. One sip and the noise blocks out for just 1 peaceful minute. Until you are hit in the back of the head with half a banana. UGHHH!
