My son just grabbed this cup from the cupboard, said “milk” and toddled over to the fridge like a 47 yr old insomniac in an Ambien blackout.
I asked him if he was ready to drink some milk from that big boy cup. I showed him how to do it and he smiled and imitated me and said “milk milk milk!”
So I poured an inch of milk into the little big boy cup and he immediately put his entire hand into it, then turned it upside down and splashed the milk that puddled on the floor.
This isn’t the first time we’ve tried this experiment. I’ve asked moms of older toddlers how they taught their kids this skill (regular cup-drinking) and they said to just put a little bit in the cup and just show them and sure, he’ll get it.
Eventually, I guess. But I refuse to worry much more than this because HE’S WALKING.
More about WALKINGWALKINGWALKING soon….
