We don't drink coffee in our house. But we have a coffee pot because periodically we have guests that do. So I pulled it out, cleaned it up, bought some coffee and a variety of creamers and made my little boy his own cup of coffee ever morning. For a month. After a month, he now only drinks coffee on the weekends, instead of having it every morning with breakfast before heading out to school.
And I realized that he didn't have it quite right: He wasn't actually addicted to coffee; He was bonding with my mother over their cups of coffee.
I'm sure he'll pick up the coffee more often once the weather turns cold. I'll start making myself a cup of hot tea every morning and his little brother will start asking for a cup of hot cocoa. And every now and then, I'll get the delicious refrigerated flavored creamers and we can all have a cup of coffee.
