Caffeine

21 Dec

I love diet soda.  It is my one weakness and addiction.  I don’t smoke.  I don’t really drink alcohol. I have never touched other substances (no, not even in college). But every morning I love my Diet Mountain Dew and I’d drink it all day if I could.

Last night my one year old had another awful night of sleep.  Or should I say, lack of. I even got up with her, tried rocking and cuddling, even tried an extra snack, but she continued to scream.  She has these nights every now and then.  My 9 year old is the only one in the house lucky enough to sleep through it.  I even pulled out our hide-a-bed and crashed there with her for the night as when she’s sick it seems to help to have me nearby.  She still screamed.  She did fall asleep in between fits (and so did I), but it was a night of little sleep.  I think she slept better as a newborn.

When the time came that she was climbing on me, her five year old sister was yelling for me in her room, and it was time for my son to get ready for school I dragged myself up and poured myself a large cup of Diet Coke.  A few minutes later my five year old poured it out into the sink.  And I was annoyed.

However, later on when she kept pointing to the bottle of soda and asking me for some, I realized that I’m a bit of a hypocrite if I say no, but I’m drinking it all day long.  So today’s goal is to drink water.  And since I’m unemployed I can save a few dollars a week by drinking what comes out of my kitchen sink.

But, I’ll be honest, I’m finishing my last glass of caffeine for the day right now;)
