If you rely on your morning cup of joe (or two) to get up and get going in the morning, you’re not alone. While people from all walks of life can be crazy for caffeine, there seems to be something about raising kids that makes a penchant for a good cup of coffee (or latte, or espresso or iced macchiato—you get the picture) an inevitability.
And who can blame moms and dads for needing a boost throughout the day? Sometimes kids are just plain exhausting. If you have kids and can’t imagine facing the day without your java fix, these tweets about parenting and the need for coffee are sure to make you LOL.
Like this mom knows that coffee is essential for proper morning functioning:
I didn't have time to have my coffee before drop off this morning. Anyway. Hopefully I brought them to the right school.

Or this mom knows that having kids certainly changes you:
Before kids: "Oh I don't drink coffee"
1 kid: "I'll have one cup, lots of cream & sugar"
2 kids: "THE WHOLE POT BLACK YES I KNOW IT'S HOT"

The ability to down your cup before it goes cold seems to be a recurring problem:

I've been on a trip and really miss my kids…wait this coffee tastes weird. It's like all hot and stuff.

I'm just saying if they can make hot coffee taste good and iced coffee taste good, they can do more with lukewarm coffee.

Or this mom that knows that snagging the last cup of coffee can be a religious experience:
I may not be religious, but when I shake the kuerig carafe and theres still coffee left i think, "there is a god and he is good" #parenting
