If you have a toddler who drinks milk, take heed of my mistakes, people. Thank me later.
When your child asks for milk, and you pour it into their sippy cup, which we lovingly call ‘ba ba more’, stalk them. As in, as soon as they finish the cup, you must find it and wash it immediately. Why? If you don’t find the aforementioned cup, it will somehow always get hidden from you, between the cushions of the couch, under the bed, in the toy box, where it hides is irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that it only hides from you, yet your toddler seems to have a government-issued radar lock on it, finding it many hours later, without thinking, and taking large heaping gulps from it.
Suddenly, the chicken nuggets and fries in your toddler’s tummy are at war with the hours-old milk just swallowed, and needless to say, your floor is the one who pays the price.. or is it you, the one who gets to clean it up? You know, the one who forgot to stalk the toddler to ensure the cup was properly secured upon finishing? Yeah, you.
