Life is about stealing moments to get actual work done while touting the kids to and fro. Check email while cheering at the soccer game. Pay a bill while your son does snap front kicks at Tae Kwon Do. It’s all a day in the life of a parent.

So you finally get to set down your booty down at a table and work on the computer…. the joy! And free wi-fi at Starbucks? Yes, please!

But here’s the secret…. everyone else is on the wi-fi system, sucking up every last drop of byte carried through the air, leaving you with a computer than runs as fast as the original Macintosh computer.

Watch the kaleidoscope wheel turn and turn and turn. But no progress is made. It’s rather hypnotic, putting you into a trance. Perhaps that’s the point. Starbucks is going to lull us into a sleepy purple haze that will only be cured by a double hit of espresso. Oh, you are a devious one, Starbucks. Devious indeed.

MOUTH OFF: Are you a Starbucks addict or hater? Tell us the wildest story that happened to you while at Starbucks.

I’m the mama of two muddy monkeys. Leave it to my 6yo and 4yo to keep me on my toes. Through their craziness, sweetness and undeniable inexhaustible energy, they are teaching me as much about being a person as they are about being a parent.
