It's A Miracle!

They say you shouldn't cry over spilled milk, but apparently you do cry over milk in the wrong sippy cup. Yes, we've been having quite a few tears and tantrums lately over sippy cups of all things. Invariably, whatever color cup I pour for Madeleine is the one that Seamus ends up wanting and vice versa. Or if Madeleine is using a regular cup then Seamus wants one too, and he will indubitably spill it.

I decided to make the whole ordeal easier and get them new cups. I heard about the Miracle® 360° Cup by Munchkin and decided to give it a try. I picked up two (in the same color to eliminate the color wars) and brought them home.

Let me tell you, they were a big hit! It did take us a few minutes to figure out exactly how they worked. Basically, you just drink it like you do a normal cup and the liquid seeps out from between the silicone lid and the hard plastic rim. If you're not sipping, the silicone lid seals shut preventing any spills if it topples overs (not sure what happens if you drop it yet though). Since it's just a regular drinking motion, it's a great way for toddlers to learn to handle a "real" cup. They're easy to wash too. No more dealing with annoying straws and valves.

We were so impressed with these cups we have plans to buy another two, and recycle a bunch of our old sippy cups.

Are there any cool kids' products out there that are making your life easier lately? I'd love to hear.
