nescafe-ricky-martin-concert


Many of you know by now that I’m all about my morning cafésito. It’s the one thing I crave and have to have the minute my alarm clock goes off in the morning (ahem! our 9-month-old). And if you follow on Instagram, you also know that we have a nocturnal baby that keeps us up through the night still. For that reason, coffee is an absolute must around here.

But my love for coffee didn’t just stem from parenthood and all of the sleepless nights it comes with. In fact, It’s always been there since I could remember. I know, sounds crazy but hear me out.

I remember as a kid, my father waking up around 4:30am-5am to prepare his morning coffee before heading out to work. Since he worked long hours, and usually six days a week, I rarely got to see him. Every morning, though,  I would wake up to the smell of his fresh cup of Nescafé coffee and would join him in the kitchen. It was our few minutes of bonding time before he headed off to work. He’d serve me a cup of warm milk and would add a few drops of his Nescafé coffee just to get the milk semi off-white and make it seem as if I too was having a cup of coffee with him. We chatted about school, his work, and our Sunday plans. Sunday being his only day off from work and would spend it taking us wherever we wanted to go.

Nescafé has always been a big part of our familia. And it’s safe to say we’re definitely NESCAFEteros.

    I have those very similar memories as you do. I would spend my weekends at my grandparents place and I’d wake up to the smell of coffee. I woke up early just like my grandfather and would sit there at the table with him talking about all kinds of stuff. I truly cherish those moments.

      Right?? Those memories will forever be engraved in my mind. Love that you spent time with your grandparents. Grandparents are the best. I still have mine from my moms side and cherish them both. 🙂

    I love Ricky Martin!! I love dancing to his music at Zumba. This would be a great concert! And my mom has always been a coffee drinker. I remember waking up to her coffee pot going. I didn’t get into drinking coffee regularly until this year. It’s become part of my daily routine now.

    I loved hearing the story about the coffee. I remember that being an important part of the morning for my dad, and my daughter loves making coffee with her dad.

    I’m a coffee addict too! I have to have it right away in the morning to function! My kiddos hate sleep too…I’m counting the days when i can sleep through the night again!

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .
