I still let my 3 year old drink out of a sippy cup.
Go ahead, judge me. I am hanging my head in shame. Bad mommy!
I guess I do it out of convenience. There are less spills and messes with the sippy cup. Now I will say I only give it to him in the morning with his milk. Otherwise, during the day he gets a regular cup sans lid.
But today was the straw that broke the camels back per se.
I was cleaning up around the house and noticed a sippy cup. I don't know how long it had been hanging around and it looked empty, but definitely used. I took it to the sink, opened it up to wash it out and about passed out from the stench that came out of the cup. It literally smelled like someone vomited in the cup, added vinegar and sulfur and let it cook in the sun for a few days.
This topped any bad smell I've ever experience before in my life. By far. And I have three kids.
Needless to say, the sippy cups are making their way to
the trash a new home in T minus 6 days. I had to give Luke advanced warning. He turns 4 next Tuesday so I told him that on his birthday the sippy cups go bye-bye.
Adios puke cups - you will not be missed (at least not by me).
