It is a new generation, folks...

Yesterday I bundled the kids into the car; heading off to do some errands. The following conversation ensued (and to my chagrin, I am NOT making this up):
Jonathan: Mommy, where are we going?
Me: We're going to do some errands. We'll make some copies at OfficeMax, go to the bank, and then get our groceries at Vons.
Jonathan: *pause* Mommy, I need Starbucks. Let's go get coffee drinks at Starbucks.
When I was a kid, I vaguely remember it being soda that held such appeal. Coffee was interesting, but it was clearly a drink for grownups. Apparently that isn't the case anymore!

Does this mean Starbucks has subliminal advertising that appeals to toddlers?

Too funny! We drive by the Golden Arches and my son starts saying "fench fries". We don't go there that often so I amazed he already knows what those mean.

I thought my toddlers were the only Starbucks addicts. Very cute :)
