Tea Time

Every morning the boys watch with great interest as we make ourselves a very elaborate double shot latte.*
When I’m done steaming my milk and dusting it with cinnamon, they get to dip a finger in and taste.
They know these little cups are special because the mommies use them.

So, for the last week, we’ve started evening “tea time”.
After dinner, we bring out the cups with ‘tea’ (water) and practice drinking. I don’t care if the get themselves and everything wet because it’s the end of the day anyway.

Grunter got the hang of it quickly but W2 feels the need to tongue everything. Needs work.

Eventually they will get it. I’d love to travel without any special cups, spoons, etc. It’s possible in 4 months, right? We won’t have a D/W and in the humid conditions…those straws…could be pretty yucky.

When did you transition to only an open cup? How long did it take?

**Before I was pregnant a very bitter woman told us to sell our espresso machine because once we had a baby we would never have the time to make ‘fancy’ coffee again. Well, we have made them for 21 months. Our love of good espresso is that strong.**
