This boozy white chocolate Milky Way mocha is going to save your day. You can’t go wrong with caramel, chocolate, and coffee!
My four-year-old slept in her closet the other night. I am not kidding.
This is just one of the zillion ways that she regularly gives me tiny heart attacks. Only this heart attack wasn’t so tiny. Have you ever walked into your child’s bedroom in the dead of the night only to discover an empty and perfectly made bed?
Well. It feels just like a scene out of a Lifetime Movie.
As I ran around the house frantically searching every corner for my missing child, hands shaking and voice trembling with fear, my son finally suggested that I check her closet.
Her very small closet, I might add.
Skeptical, I went into her room and opened the closet door. And there she was in the pitch black, curled into a tiny ball and sound asleep.
Keep in mind that this is the very same child who requires water of a certain temperature, thirteen kisses, her blanket draped over her body JUST SO, and forty-seven stories before she’s comfortable enough to go to bed. And yet there she was. Sleeping on her tiny closet floor.
After a bit of deliberation, I just decided to leave her there. She was obviously comfortable. It was obviously where she wanted to be. I mean, why WOULDN’T you prefer the closet floor over a comfortable bed?
Oh children. I love you but gosh do you ever make me pay for it.
It is no wonder that I spend my free time dreaming up concoctions involving booze AND caffeine. Life around these parts requires a healthy dose of both and I see no shame in admitting it.
This white chocolate Milky Way mocha is decadent enough to be a dessert, with lots of melted white chocolate and Bailey’s. Wait until the kids go to bed (preferably their actual BED) and sip one slowly while you enjoy the quiet. Trust me when I say that it won’t last long.
