Backseat Parent

Q has recently become proficient enough at drinking from a cup that I give him an open cup at meal times. The first time I presented him with a big boy cup, Z wanted to know why. I told her that he had to learn how to use a regular cup.

Spills are still a regular occurrence, however, so I only give him milk or water in an open cup. This morning, I was serving juice with breakfast, so I put it in a sippy cup. As I set their breakfasts on the table, Z said, "Q will never learn to drink out of a cup if you don't let him do it."

Ironically, after a cup of spilled milk at lunchtime, T said, "You have got to stop giving him regular cups."

Everyone is a critic.
