baby starbucks mom blog

I need my wake up cup of joe!

I need to stop tweeting and facebook status updating because then you guys already know about what has happened to me before I write about it. Oh well, my bad.

The picture above was taken a while ago. Princess A was jealous of my coffee so the barista gave her an empty cup to play with. She mimicked me and it made her very happy. Just wanted to let you know I did not give her a grande sized latte.

Anyway, I took Princess A to Starbuck’s yesterday to get some coffee for The Husband and I. I ordered 2 venti(large) iced coffees with skim milk. The woman who works at Starbuck’s told me that I should be putting whole milk in my daughter’s coffee because babies should be drinking whole milk. When I insisted on the skim milk and told her the coffee was for my husband not my baby it was like she didn’t hear me and she kept blabbing on about how I was a bad mom for giving her skim milk. What?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

1. Who in their right mind gives a toddler a large coffee?

2. My daughter doesn’t even drink whole milk because she hates the taste of it. She drinks almond milk.

3. Mind your own business.

Why is it always the dumb people who love to give unsolicited advice? I get advice from strangers on how to raise my child all day every day. This started when I was noticeably pregnant and not once in that 2 year time span has someone given me intelligent advice. So annoying dumb people please stop talking to me and go give your imaginary friends some unsolicited advice.

Stay Glamorous,

Shannon Sutehrland

    I love it when people don’t think before they give you their crappy unwanted advice. My brother in laws sister is always trying to give me advice on what to do with my daughter. I know she’s just trying to be helpful and she’s an awesome person, but it gets annoying. Especially considering that her daughter is younger than mine and she tends to go over board with reading info on babies and kids. I’m like, that’s fine if that’s what you want to do, but I don’t. She asked me other day if I had started potty training my daughter. She’s not even 2 yet. No I’m not. She’s not ready yet.

      People judge me all the time that I am not potty training Amelia yet but I talked to my pediatrician and she agreed Amelia is not ready so I try to ignore them.

    If you try to force potty training everyone involved ends up frustrated. I just consoled myself with “I am sure they will not be going to kindergarten in a diaper.”

    Now I will offer the advice that next time you order her a coffee make sure it is an expresso! You posted earlier this week that she is no longer wanting naps, so a quick pick me up may be just what she needs LOL!
    People are idiots. I have a couple of pictures of David sucking on the end of an empty beer bottle. I wouldn’t dare post them for the uproar it would cause.

      HAH, for my 8th grade graduation my parents gave the yearbook a really awesome pick of me as a baby that happened to have a beer in the back. I wasn’t even touching it. It caused quite the upset and we had to pick a new picture.

    I don’t listen to stupid people like that, i must have this look when they start and then a few mintues later they shut up lol. When i had Cody i took NO ONES advice, not even my mums, because times have changed, kids aren’t the same, so why preach what is best? We become parents for a reason, it’s a learning curve and we have to learn on our own. We as parents Know when it’s right to toilet train OUR kids, what milk is good for them, what foods are good for then and so on. If you want to give Princess A skim milk, bloody give it to her, even though she drinks almond milk, but you get the point lol. After all this i need a bloody Coffee now….with skim milk lol. Keep up what your doing Shannon, cause your doing a fantasic job with your lil girl and do it YOUR WAY xxxx

    Ahh, unsolicited advice. It doesn’t just happen to you when you have kids.

    About a month and a half ago I was trying to buy jeans at my favorite store in the mall. I found these AWESOME peacock blue skinny jeans and fell in love with them. When the ones I tried in my normal size were way too small, I asked the girl who was working (who had to be no more than 17 years old) if they had any more in the back room. She came back and said no, she didn’t. Instead of offering to order them in for me like they normally do, she looks me over and says “You know, I’ve heard if you start walking a whole lot and maybe even running, you could drop those extra five pounds or so in a few weeks.” Here’s the deal. I’m NOT FAT! I’M A SIZE 27 WAIST!!! WHAT THE HELL, KID?!
    Fortunately the fabulous gay teenage boy who works there, (who happens to be my chiropractor’s son and I love dearly and trust with all my soul to dress me) comes up to me and says “It seems we’re having some problems here. Let me help out, ok?” and proceeded to tell the other girl that she’d just made a huge mistake by saying that to me.
    I didn’t get the blue pants, but left with an equally awesome pair of berry pink ones and felt much better about myself, once miss know it all left the picture.

      I can’t believe she said that?!?!?!?! Luckily your glam friend was there to save the day!

    I still can’t believe someone would think you would order coffee for a 1 year old child. As far as advice, I try to offer the best I can if someone asks, but honestly all kids are different. My kid wanted milk all the time, but some kids only like soy milk or almond milk. I can assure you that I would never tell someone to put whole milk in their kids coffee LOL

      I know crazy right? Toddlers to not need coffee for energy! Amelia loves cheese but hates milk. It’s kind of weird.

  7. Melissa July 19, 2012 at 9:13 AM #

    I actually am that way too, but I’ve found now that I’m an adult that it’s because of a slight lactose intolerance. I can handle cheese and yogurt, but if I drink milk or eat ice cream more than just occasionally, I’m sick! As long as her pediatrician is happy with her projects, she’s fine. But as far as the coffee goes, this person must not have ever been near a toddler. They have a engery that we as adults can only envy and hate at the same time LOL.

    • Shannon July 19, 2012 at 11:10 AM #

      Yeah, her pediatrician is fine with it because almond milk has more calcium than regular milk.

  8. Melissa July 19, 2012 at 9:13 AM #

    sorry, not projects! progress! (I’ve been working too much LOL)
