    Cup O Death

    Our kids seem to use at least 5 cups or glasses a day. I decided to buy disposable plastic cups to try to slow this down. Everyone in the house writes their name on their cup with a Sharpie marker.

    Last night I got a new cup in order to take my Nyquil gelcaps. I didn't write my name on the cup because I was feeling drained. I did however, put my cup on the windowsill above the sink so that no one would think it was theirs. I can't handle the thought of passing on this vile virus to anyone else.

    When I got up this morning, I noticed that my cup was moved and now contained water. I knew it had to be Mr. Sign since the girls each had their labeled cup. I yelled upstairs to him that he had drunk out of my cup. He called out that it had been his cup on the windowsill and that he had been placing his there for years. "No", I informed him, "That's my special spot". Apparently, we have been sharing a cup for years, lol.

    He asked why I hadn't labeled it. I explained that in my clouded stupor I had been too tired.

    I did label my new cup:

    I think he'll know which cup not to drink out of from now on. We go through cups and spoons. I don't know why, I don't ask.

    Hope you feel better!

    Hi I am new...Been salking..Um learking...Um anyway thought I'd stop by...
    So I am an Auntie and I swear that 1. Sippy cups have a black hole. 2. I can never find the "binki" when I need one, but I had 5 jump out of a storage bin at me from last year's Christmas stuff?!?!?!
    3. Water always tastes better from the kitchen and
    4. No matter how hard you try, kids always say something that will make you laugh right before they are supposed to get punished!
