fabulous finds friday...

i know super cheesy, but this is an experiment and, as with all experiments, the beginning is a little rocky and the title is bound to change.  anyway, as i was washing the dishes today, i put away several sippy cups and decided that there are a few precious nuggets of information that i have that i would like to share with the general public...or at least, the choice few that read this blog.  i know there are millions of blogs out there that literally specialize on everything i will share here, but at least it will give me something to write and maybe something that will be useful to you or someone you know.

as with all goals of mine, i'm not promising anything.  i can't pinky swear with all of you (or, any of you really) that i will be here every friday with an idea or item that will save your day or your child if you happen to find yourself at the end of your proverbial rope, but i will try and trying is half the battle...or was that knowing?  whatever...anywho, on to my first installment...

if you are a mother of toddlers, or older kids who tend to spill...or, lets be honest, if you are constantly tipping over your water cup like i do and you don't currently own at least 3 of these, go out and purchase them now!  if you can't leave now, make a note, take a picture...do whatever you have to do, to add them to your shopping list:

tummy tickers.  otherwise known as the nirvana of sippy cups


i usually buy them at walmart, but i'm pretty sure they are available at winco and most likely, fred meyer and super target. i know for a fact that they are not at safeway, but who shops there when you're looking for deals anyway?   they come with juice already in them, so if you have food stamps or coupons...that's right, they're free!

moms, run out and buy these.  they really, seriously, honest to goodness, do not spill.  every single other cup says they don't and make huge promises like they're the last cup you'll ever buy.  don't believe them.  believe ME!  these are awesome.  my sister in law told me about them and ever since that day, i've never gone back to anything else.  plus, they have really fun lids, so your kids love them and so will you.  i promise, i pinky promise even.  don't ever leave home or stay home without them.  

here is said sippy cup in action.  well, sort of.  the real action is happening with the oatmeal, but you get the point.

I am so sad that I have been away from Blogland for so long! I just went out and bought FOUR new sippy cups TODAY because I was so over our other ones! I tried 3 different brands and never once thought to go get these babies--that my kids ask for EVERY time we go to Walmart! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
