How is the weekend already over? Why do they always go so fast?
While you ponder these important questions, let me tell you that I had a pretty good weekend. I got to watch Shark Tank (my favorite show, next to Real Housewives, of course), had a date night with my husband, and I went to a sprinkle for a friend of mine whose third baby is due any day now! (For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a “sprinkle” is a smaller scale baby shower for a woman who already has children, and has presumably already had a full-blown baby shower.)
As a gift for the mom-to-be, we all went together and got her an insane baby monitor that can apparently read the baby’s mind and decipher what each cry means. (Okay, maybe it’s not that advanced, but I hear that it puts all other baby monitors to shame). In addition, we all brought her little gifts to help shower her and her little bundle with love.
My gift was tailored more toward her well-being, as opposed to the baby’s. I figured that since she will be pulled in a million directions while caring for her newborn as well as her other two kids, she might need something to help her keep her sanity.
And that’s where “Mommy’s Special Coffee* Mug” came from.
I purchased a plain white mug and used a (affiliate link) DecoArt Glass Paint Marker in Gold to write “coffee*” on the front. This way, nobody will suspect what mommy’s really drinking, wink wink. Then, around the bottom, I wrote “*in this case coffee is defined as wine.”
