Hi yall! Let me introduce myself to those of you who haven’t met me, or maybe those of you who do but don’t know my back story. My name is Jessica but everyone calls me Jay. I’m a single mother of 4 beautiful children ages 10, 9, 7 and 3 years old as of 2015. I became a mother at the ripe young age of 15 years old. Most of yall are thinking “what in the what?”, trust me when I say everyone including me was thinking the same thing.
I was a young girl with big dreams and hopes of doing things my own way, but here I was 15 years old and pregnant with my first child. I swallowed that hard pill and decided to take on my responsibilities 9 months later gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy. Fate had many plans for me and gave me another child at the age of 16 years old. It was a rough few years but thankfully my family was that amazing support system that anyone could hope for. They were there for every step of the way, as I figured out how to navigate being a teenager and have 2 children before I even finished high school.
In real life most would say super powers don’t exist, and that superheroes are just in the comic books and movies. I see many superheroes every day and most of them do things without anyone even noticing. The mom that’s able to get dinner on the table by 5 and still make it to soccer practice by 6:15. It’s hard I’ve been doing this mom thing on my own for many years, I’ve found that everyone has their own way of activating their superpowers.
This mom takes on life by the horns by drinking her super power activator every morning. What is this super power activator you ask, and where can you get it from? Well, that’s the easiest thing I could tell you and the great news is this activator is available in a grocery store near you or online here. That’s Right! My activator is Coffee!
My Keurig is my best friend and it brews the most delicious coffee that helps me stay bold and fierce throughout my day. The Dunkin’ Donuts Dunkin Dark® Roast is so full and bold and contains 30% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ coffee! It’s a beauty to drink in the morning. It’s the wake me up that has me going at 7am every day of the week because being a mom is a full-time job. This cup or two of coffee keeps the laundry at bay, which seems to pile up very quickly, still trying to figure out how all of those clothes are being worn so quickly hmmm. It also helps keep me awake and able to play Uno 5 times and even squeeze in a dance party after lunch time. Yo Gabba Gabba!!! I hope some of yall get that part of my joke because some moms don’t know the show like my 3-year-old does.
Actually, I work 3 jobs, I’m a mom, a blogger and during the day I work with tons of other beautiful little kids. It takes a lot to wake me up in the morning (I am NOT a natural morning person, my best friend can testify to that) I give it to Dunkin’ Donuts® Dunkin’ Dark® for being the big bold wake me up that I need on a daily basis. This super power activator is my go-to for when I need to stay quick and witty for all the many things kids can get into, or just for answering 200 emails a day, yeah it can get pretty full in my email box.
Have you tried the Dunkin’ Donuts® Dunkin’ Dark® Roast yet? Is coffee your super power activator too? How do you take your Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee?
I would like to take a moment and give Erik Weihenmayer a huge congratulation, he was the very first blind man to climb Mount Everest. Erik Weihenmayer did not stop there, he pushed his accomplishments even further and kept adventuring into more amazing things pushing our perspective of being blind to another level. He lives life Bold and I reminds me there is always more you can do in life, so why not push the envelope and get out of your comfort zone and do it!
