In a harried moment the other day, I picked up one of my son’s sippy cups and took a chug of water. It was one of these cheap weiner dog sippies from Ikea, and as I was drinking from it I realized … I really LIKE this cup.
The tumbler itself is a great shape, smooth and comfortable in my hand. Furthermore, it’s the perfect size for a smart little sip — around 6oz. I realized, I wanted to drink out of it more often.
Then I realized I’d like it with a cocktail in it.
My birthday party was fun kind of a personal catastrophe, so I’m not allowed to throw a party until our annual anniversary campout. BUT. You’re not on a party moritorium, so you’re allowed to throw this party for me; SIPPY-CUP COCKTAIL HOUR.
I feel like this party has legs for both parents AND non-parents. Of course those of us with kids are like “HA HA SIPPY CUP!” but sippy cups have an odd appeal for all. So … imminently sippable. Cocktails go down so easy!
(Safety tip for parents who may be throwing this party: make sure sippy cups are emptied and washed before the kids come home from the babysitter’s. We don’t need another Applebee’s incident.)
