That Darn Cup

I try to be a good mom, really, I do. But you know what? Sometimes that dang sippy cup just escapes me! Ya, you know the one I'm talking about. The one that gets lost for a few days (or even weeks) and then one of your kids happens to find it?
Well, as Joseph emerged from the room with that orange sippy cup I thought, hmm, haven't seen that for a couple days. Then, he did it. Before I could stop him, he did it! He put that thing to his lips and took three or four good long sucks. Next thing I see is a disgusted face them him chucking the cup down the hallway. I run over and pick it up. It must still be about half full, and its still liquid! Not sure if it is sour milk or fermented juice I slowly and reluctantly open the lid. Whew! Curdled milk! I gag and groan. Well, it is still liquid so it must only be about two or three days old! It could have been worse!  =)

I must be getting "older"...I nearly "gagged" thinking about what he chugged down!!! (smile)

I hate sippy cups for that reason. They always seem to get lost, and I hate the sight, smell, idea of curdled milk. I have mostly stopped putting milk in sippy's for her. She drinks a lot in regular cups at dinner, but I don't know...she probably needs more. I am just a chicken about it.
