A Starbucks Cup and a “Cup”

A Starbucks Cup and a “Cup”

It was a crazy morning for sure. I woke up late and didn’t even get a chance to make my morning cup of coffee. That alone already put me in a semi-psychotic mood and If you’d ask my children they would agree. I’m rushing everyone out the door and I’m thinking “as soon as I drop off these boys at school, Starbucks time! – Venti Hazelnut Macchiato Iced Coffee.” The thought of my morning caffeine fix certainly had me excited.

My Favorite Drink-Venti Iced Hazelnut Macchiato from Starbucks


Kids are dropped off at school and my car makes a bee-line to the neighborhood Starbucks, where a formidable line for coffee greets me as I enter – not a good thing since it’s  8:30 am and I’ve been awake for a couple of hours and still no coffee! I order my Venti Iced Hazelnut Macchiato, the barista asks my name and says, “$4.85 please.” I reach into my purse and start feeling around for my wallet. I feel a mysterious object that has no business being in my purse and as I extract my strange discovery, I look up and the barista has a puzzled look on her face. I see her gazing at what I’m holding – my son’s protective baseball cup!


Two Cups!


The person behind me in line is chuckling and I quickly put it back into my purse and pull out my wallet. Shaking my head and smiling I exclaim,”I have boys!” It wasn’t the first time one of my sons put his baseball cup in my purse but on this occasion, due to my no-caffeine induced haze, I didn’t realize I was carrying it around. A bit of an embarrassing moment, but as I was driving to work enjoying my coffee, I was giggling in the car about it.

What are some strange things your kids have put in your purse?

    OMG!!!! Too funny!!!

  2. This is super funny! I don’t have any boys so thankfully, I won’t be pulling out any protective cups! I don’t have really embarrassing things in my purse, just a lot of JUNK! A lot of paper and receipts! I try to clean it out once a week, but that never happens! Every time I pull out my wallet a piece of paper is falling out with it!

  8. That was hilarious! My husband has witnessed me pull out random items of food in my purse – cookie, cornbread, sandwich.
    Iced caramel macchiato is my favorite drink, but hazelnut sounds good too! Mmmm…

      Thank you so much for stopping by!

      With kids you never know what we are going to find. I guess you can say it’s an adventure!

  9. Funny! Luckily my Kiddies are still too young for things such as that at my Teenager has never given me a moment like that BUT I definitely have the typical Momma purse…an assortment of pink barbie bracelets, batman figures, cars and other toys that always seems to fall out or get in the way at the oddest moments.

  10. Hehe! Too funny! I have found some crazy things in my purse over the past 4 years…luckily I have girls so no “cups”! If I find one of those I think I should start being concerned!!

  11. uhmmm spiderman’s head, a dinosaur and a toy truck tire. Boys will be boys huh? 😀

  12. Ahahahahhaa!! My brothers used to do that to my mom all the time! At least your coffee and this story were pretty great consolation prizes!
