keeping your family from drinking after one another.

Now that no one is on a sippy, it seems alot harder to keep everyones glass to themselves. I just went to get a sip of my water and it's empty, was full when I sat it down. Stinks, cause I've had a cold for a week now so if I hadn't passed it on yet, I did just now. Sorry Izz!

No, in fact I encourage it. I always just hand them a cup or say "this one has water". But I don't like them drinking from my glass. That is ooogie.

i color-coded cups for my kids from early on. they continued it as they got older, just using bigger cups. there is NO WAY that i share my cup with anyone......except maybe wyatt if he's desperate.

I have counter space right by the fridge for cups. Every kid has their own cup.

Cups drive me crazy in my house.
My kids will each get a cup and they are all pretty good about taking it to the kitchen when they are done. They leave it on the counter or in the sink and then I have no idea whose was whose so I have to wash them all again.

It seems like we are always out of cups.

We are still using sippy cups for the most part. They use the same sippy all day and they go back in the frig when they are done (not a lot of counter space). I think I will do the same color code once I get rid of sippies forever and have them either place them on the counter, sink or in the frig when they are done.

We keep a cup in the bathroom sink for the kids to use. When they have their own cup they always seem to lose it or have to have the particular cup one of their siibs has so this is just easier.
