Having a baby gets you free stuff

On Tuesday I had to go into work for a training. I woke up at 6:30 and used every single second of the morning to arrive on time to my training at 9. I obviously used some of this time to make a trip to Starbucks so I could appear energetic and focused as we discussed the new technology my district is using. I lugged Paul's car seat into the coffee shop where the woman working behind the counter inquired about his age, name, etc. As I made my grande skinny vanilla latte order she announced that Starbucks was going to buy my coffee that morning because I just had a baby and was able to get out of the house. Hearing this news, my eyes teared up, because I also was so proud of myself for getting both Paul and I up and moving with a shower for me and a clean outfit for him. Thank you Starbucks for appreciating my efforts.

Then, on Wednesday Ryan and I went out for sushi at HAPA and ran into one of our former students who was working as a hostess. The manager was at the front of the restaurant as we caught up with this student giving her the news that we just had a baby. After we were seated, the manager came over with 2 glasses of champagne. He guessed that since we had a baby we weren't getting out of the house much and decided we were worthy of a little bubbly. It was so nice.

The moral of the story? If you are interested in some free lattes or drinks, all you have to do is have a baby. So easy!


  1. Way to go! Can I just say that I'm a little jealous about the free coffee?! Bubbly is good and all - you know I'm not about to turn down a free G&T - but coffee. . . that's just tuggin' at my heartstrings!

    Super cute kiddo - congrats on getting out of the house. And showered at the same time. Feat of a Super Mom!!

  2. i teared up reading that you teared up when that nice starbucks lady acknowledged your efforts.


Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm so appreciative of your comments, questions and stories!
