It tastes bad when she sees it. My sweet girl will drink water or juice or chamomile tea out of a clear glass and she will not dribble and she will not spill and she will not knock it over but milk-- milk needs to be in a covered container or she gags on it.
Just the fact, ma'am. I don't understand it either, but it's real.
We keep a full stock of lidded straw cups since all three kids travel with milk to school, so we haven't had a problem until I cavalierly switched our cups to a new brand. The old ones leaked, and I'm a jerk.
The new cups aren't completely opaque and suddenly, E was choking on her milk again.
At first my solution was to encase her cups in extra unmatched socks but the cups wouldn't stand upright that way, and you know how I feel about facing more laundry, especially socks.
The solution became - and this doesn't look crazy at all - beer cosies. Behold:
These $1 cosies aren't very fancy, though, and we do love fancy around here. I also need some projects to entertain the girls with when we're off for Passover next week. You know where this is going, right?
I'm operating on two premises:
1) Accessories can make the look
2) In the game of life, the girl with the best beer cosy always wins.
