Coffee Anyone?

Henry loves coffee.  We don't let him drink it BUT if you leave your coffee cup unattended for more than a minute Henry can sense it..  He has a super human coffee detector that goes off and he hones in on the unattended cup.  He is happy to sip your coffee until you return.  This week Henry has taken coffee into his own hands.  I was upstairs getting ready for the day when I heard a noise downstairs.  I went to investigate.  Downstairs I saw this-
Much to Henry's delight, Rob had left the coffee can on the counter.   Henry decided to make a pot.  He even pulled out a coffee cup.  Since he made a pot I figured he needed to be rewarded for his ingenuity.  I poured him half a cup.  He took one sip then said, "mmmm, that's good." 
The coffee is back in the cabinet... very, very high up.

Now just get him to do that for you early every morning. So very ingenious, Henry.

Our kids LOVE coffee too. Jacob makes espresso and they would drink it up if we let them. We make it a special occasion thing. On their birthday and Ethiopian Christmas they are allowed to have coffee. They look forward to it!

Sally used to sneak around drinking my coffee thinking I wouldn't notice. You can't help but smell it on a four year old's breath though! She never actually made herself a cup though...
