Morning Waffees

I normally drink hot tea in the morning and Justin normally has a coffee, although sometimes I ask Justin to make me a frothy coffee drink too, like a breve or something, if I'm really tired. Both of the kids love "hottea" but The Girl is a "waffee" fanatic.

I don't let her have much real caffinated tea or coffee, although I sometimes let her have the foam off my coffee drink. We normally make her her own "waffee" out of Pero, a non-coffee based coffee substitute that my parents used to make for me when I was little.

This morning The Girl was adamant that she wanted coffee though and tea wouldn't cut it. She heard my kettle whistling and looked at me and said, "Waffees, please!"

"No," I told her, "I'm making tea."

"No, tea. Waffees!" And she ran over to get her plastic tea cup for me to fill.

Later, I had made my tea and thought the subject might have been dropped when she again handed me the cup and asked for coffee. I put in some tea. She looked at me in disgust, poured the tea back into my cup and said, "No tea. Make waffees, please!"

She had said please, so I made her some "coffee" and she guzzled it down. If she's like this at 22 months, what am I in for later? Or do I not want to know?
