The end of an era...

Today marks the day...its the end of an era...The sippy cup era. Well almost! Today I cleaned out the sippy cup drawer. Tori and Jake at 4 and 5 are getting to old for sippy cups to be used on any sort of regular occasions. I started thinking this last week while unloading the dishwasher and noticing that Tori and Jake had no sippy cups in there, just Tara. So for one week I have been keeping a running total (in my head) on how many sippy cups of theirs were in the dishwasher. Grand total....1 1/2. The one should really not count though, as Tori got Tara a cup of water, and asked if she wanted it in one of Toris big girl cups (meaning her princess sippy cup), and the half, well, its only the bottom half because thats how they drink at my house now. In "big" cups. Breakfast, at the table with somthing to drink, lunch same thing, dinner, same thing, when we go to church, they have water fountains. I got to thinking when the last time I had actually made them a sippy cup to drink out of, and I think it was at disneyland where I knew we would be out all day and juices there are about $4! I have also made them some at my moms house, but they have "big" cups there and can sit at the table. So the era is finished. I have packed up all but 2 sippy cups of theirs (for disneyland, and long trips) and Taras sippy cups are all alone. Bottles, gone, sippy cups, 2 out of 3 isn't bad, whats next...perhaps diapers? (ok, wishful thinking, but she had gone pee in the toilet at least 2-3 times every day for the last 5 days on her prompting) My babies are growing up!!
