Barista-in-Training

No, I haven't gone and acquired a job at Starbucks (though the free coffee is tempting!) Instead, I am training Daija to go work at Starbucks and get that free coffee for me! What else are children for?

It's actually quite cute, every time I go to make coffee she wants to help. She puts the filter in for me.

She knows where I keep the grinder and the beans.


She pushes the button on the grinder until the beans are all done and then signs "all done".


Then, she gets to push the on button.


We smell the beans and she imitates me, saying "Mmmmmmmm."


The ultimate goal is to get her to the point where I can wake up and tell her, "Daija, go make Daddy coffee and bring it to him in bed!" Now I just need to teach her how to fry up bacon....

You are a cruel and sinister man, pretending like coffee is something enjoyable. Just wait till she tastes it, then she'll know how badly you've been tricking her all those years.

Oh Ryan, our parents obviously forgot to instill in you the enjoyment of the finer things in life...
