Coffee, Please

Is it any secret that I love coffee?  The Bible tells us what we do in moderation our children will do in excess.  Could that ever be more true than with this magic little bean?  Ellie has been begging for coffee since she was two.  I always tell her not until she gets big.  To which she asks why.  To which I answer about how it will stunt her growth.

The other day we were making coffee and she asked again why couldn't she have some.  Aedan piped up and told her because she will stop growing if she has coffee.

That would have worked for anyone else, but not for Ellie.  She said, "I don't want to grow anymore because Aunt Dawn told me I need to stay little.  Now can I have some coffee?"


  1. Love this! Ellie's little witticisms always make my day. :D

  2. Aww. Too sweet.. I remember LOVING the smell of coffee when I was little. I finally pestered my grandmother enough that she allowed me to have some.. honestly.. I think she made the STRONGEST BLACKEST coffee she could make and let me have some.. UGH.. I didn't go near coffee again for 20 some year.. LOL.

  3. Out of the mouths of babes! LOL

    What a precious little one!
