Oh dreams. I don’t even know what those are anymore. With Little Zoom coming up on 5 months and weighing in at nearly 18 pounds, every book, blogger, and internet google doctor says he should be able to sleep through the night at this point. We’re doing a dreamfeed at 10ish, another feeding at 2ish, and then up for the day at 6ish. Sub 4 hour blocks, though better than the 1-2 hours blocks during the newborn stage, are making it tough to get much solid rest. I’m not sure when the dreaming phase of sleep starts, but I know I’m not hitting it!
Enter Starbucks drive-through. I’m from Seattle, home of Starbucks. I remember several years back when I came across the first Starbucks drive-through. At the time I scoffed at the idea, wondering how lazy a person had to be to hit a drive-through for coffee. What a difference a couple of years make! There are two in my immediate area, and I haven’t set foot in an actual Starbucks in months. Two little ones, an overstuffed diaper bag, and shelves of breakable mugs in a coffee shop are not a place for me and my Zooms right now!
So, because I’m not dreaming real dreams right now, I’ll dream for more drive-through Starbucks locations in our city! I keep telling Mr. Zoom we should have bought stock in the company when Little Zoom was born. I’m certain that I’m keeping our two locations afloat single-handedly.
