Like most of you, we are busy wrapping up our school year. My oldest, Drama Boy, just graduated last Sunday from high school and this morning, my high school freshman, Baker Boy, had his final jury. My two oldest have had an amazing opportunity attending an arts high school here in Baltimore. Baker Boy is in the stage production tract at the school. So, this morning he had to pull together all of his best projects from this year and make a 10 minute presentation in front of all of his teachers. He had to share how he grew as an artist, what he learned and how he was stretched.
He was so nervous and up most the night worrying if he’d be able to pull it off. So, this morning, we made him an iced coffee with International Delight Caramel Macchiato Creamer.
Yes, we are those kind of parents. We let our teens drink coffee. Seeing as we used to own a coffee shop and spent over 7 years in the coffee industry, it’s kind of a culture in our home. Coffee houses, for many years, have been a center for arts, thinkers and creators to congregate and exchange ideas. It’s a place to learn how to listen to others and to exercise your own communication skills in order for your ideas to be heard. We want that for our kids. So, yeah, we are a coffee family.
Soon after Baker Boy headed off, Zap and Little Man woke up and didn’t want to be left out. Zap enjoyed a cup of espresso with International Delight Vanilla Creamer.
And Little Man enjoyed an “Iced Vanilla” Steamer, as he calls it. (Just add any International Delight Creamer to milk, shake with crushed ice and serve with whipped cream and a straw.)
Enjoying a cup of coffee with our kids, is one of my favorite times of the day. They learn to linger and enjoy a conversation before rushing off to start their day. We are cultivating a coffee house culture in our home, what about you?
