If all the rain drops where sippy cups and sippy cups

Hi, my name is Meredith, and I am an addict.

The first step is just admitting, right?

Well, then consider me on the road to recovery.

Unfortunately, there is no patch for this addiction, because I am addicted to sippy cups.

Yep, you heard me right - sippy cups. I mean seriously, there are so many, I am embarrassed to show you proof, but I heard that is step 2.

I don't know what it is about sippy cups, but I just keep buying them. I blame it on the manufacturers, really. I mean, they make them so bright and colorful. Not to mention the assortment of kinds - straws, spouts, sips - I mean, they all appeal to me for different reasons.

And then I see a totally different one that has really neat handles, and I just have to try it. It is getting so bad. Dave Ramsey has seriously considered putting a row in my budget graph entitled, "sippy cup allowance."

Let me show you some of my favorites.

First, there is the Safe Sippy.

Honestly, I originally bought this because of the novelty of it. It was the first stainless steel sippy cup - which is oh so environmentally friendly and health conscious. Plus, nobody else had one of these.

And it is very important to have sippy cups that are different that everyone else. First of all, because it eliminates the mix-up of sippies in the church nursery; and secondly, because my kids are way to cool to be carrying what every other kid is carrying.

I'm only kidding. Sorta.

Then, there is the "sqatty straw cup" - as my husband and I refer to it.

It is perfect for little hands and has been an excellent first sippy for all my kiddos. The straw thing is genious for little ones. The tipping requires too much coordination, and it is often too heavy for them to hold upright anyway -so this works perfect!

And then, my Camelbak spout sippys.

These probably top the list of favorites. They Do.Not.Spill. which is absolutely amazing. I mean, that is almost as important as the cute factor. I put these in my kids lunch boxes and have zero spills. Not to mention, they are still BPA free and tough as bricks. My kids drop them hourly, and not a single crack. Plus, aren't they so cute?

Wow, I think introducing you to my favorite may have just fueled my addiction.

I am resisting the urge to get on Amazon this very moment and research the newest and greatest.

Wow, that is sad. Don't tell anyone I said that.

Please don't tell me I am alone in my crazy addiction of an inanimate object of my child's.

Someone relieve me of my solidarity.

Someone tell me you share my pain.

Someone. Anyone?

When I lived in the States, it was pacifiers. But kid stuff is so expensive here. We don't even own a single sippy cup. Seriously. Not a one. How would you survive over here?
