Sippy Cup Management
I have two children who still need to use a sippy cup. So I bought two colors of the same type of sippy cup - that way the little valve pieces are interchangeable but I can still tell whose cup is whose. We have at least 3 cups for each child. That's at least 6 total. I think there might actually be a phantom 7th cup wandering around here somewhere. Where, I don't know. That leads me to tonight's rant: the sippy cup search. Every third day or so I realize, as I am loading the dishwasher, that I only see 2 cups. 2 of 6 or 7. So I go hunting for sippy cups. The first place I look is under the couch in the family room. One there. Then I look around the main floor. One in the laundry room. Then I head to the basement. One there. Now I have 5 of 6 or 7. Some days I declare that good enough and go to bed. Other days I hunt further - getting more intense with my search. ... You get the picture. The point is, ... I don't know what the point is really. It's not my favorite part of the day, I guess. That's all. It's just one tedious but necessary part of my day. And now I've wasted your time telling you all about it. Neener neener to you.
