Sippy Cup Saga, Parts 2 and 3.

You really would think that drinking out of a cup, especially a sippy should be easier to learn. I remember going through this with the Munchkin when she was making the transition from bottle to cup, but I don't remember it being so incredibly frustrating and time consuming. Maybe now it's because everything done in two's seems to be magnified... won't potty training be super fun? Yay, I can't wait!! ** please read that with excessive amounts of sarcasm **

Mary Kate seems to be taking to it a little better than Ashley who would rather look at it, look at me and then hurl it towards me as if to say, "Oh Hell No, Woman! I'm not letting you off the hook that easy... just because my twin can't seem to follow the "drive mommy crazy in subtle ways" plan does not mean I give up so easily." She has also been practicing this plan by shooting peas out of her mouth at me... I've really never seen anything like it.

I am now going to run the gamut of 800 types of sippy cups to see if there is one that her Majesty would prefer. Who knows, maybe she will still be taking a bottle when she turns 15, just to spite me, because something tells me this little booger will not cave to peer pressure.

My oldest was hard to break from the sippy cup.(almost as hard as the bottle) I saw this article a while back and today I read your post. Maybe this would be an idea for her majesty. http://children.webmd.com/news/20080212/so-long-sippy-cups-hello-straws

And by the way my oldest did have some speech problems. Whether it was the sippy cup I am not sure since he is 19 now. Ha.
