When my little guy turned one I grabbed a couple different kinds of sippy cups to see which ones we would like. Found my favorite right away! Don’t waste your money on anything other than the Tommee Tippee Truly Spill Proof Sippy Cups. There are water bottles, cups with handles, cups without, cups with straws, oh the possibilities. They have fun colors for boys and girls and truly don’t spill. My little guy would shake them and they wouldn’t loose a drop of liquid. I picked mine up at Babies”R”Us.
These are pics of my favorites! My little boy is 3 and we still have the original valves. At around $4 a cup they are a Great Buy!
I remember asking a friend with far more children than I how she got everything done. Her house was always clean, meals always cooked, etc… I finally realized that it is not what I have time for, it’s what I make time for. Now, with one more child than before, I am the person people are asking that same question. Make time for what is important for you. If it isn’t important, it doesn’t matter.
As a new mom I never wanted to make anyone feel like my children were a burden. I always wanted the people whom I loved to enjoy my kiddos and never feel obligated to them. As a result I never really shared my son with anyone. I begged God to give me this little boy and he is the sweetest, nicest little man I could have been blessed with. I wouldn’t ever ask grandmas and great-grandmas to babysit, unless I had to work, even though they offered. My son was so easy to take with me that I never felt the need to ask for help. Now that I have had my second child, it was brought to my attention that I am not good at sharing. If your kids are as enjoyable to you as mine are, they will be just as enjoyable to your family and friends. It is important to let the people in your life have time with your babies when you’re not around. They need to spend quality time with people to build special relationships which they will always remember. Don’t take advantage, just share.
