My littlest daughter, Eloise, has a special talent. At least 90% of the time she spills whatever she drinks that isn't in a special lidded cup. It's so amazing. I keep giving her drinks in cups that don't have water tight lids and they keep getting spilled. You would think I would learn. But I don't.

We are on spill three today alone. And yes, she does clean them all up herself. I keep the rags in a low spot just for her.

I think that if a child doesn't have the opportunity to practice using a regular cup, well, it could be kinda disastrous when she goes off to college and gets strange looks in the cafeteria for using a sippy cup.

Anyone else have a kid with a track record that impeccable?

Luckily her slippery finger don't transfer over to amazing physical abilities. Maybe it's more of a fine motor skill, being able to drink without spilling?

  1. I do think that qualifies as a fine motor skill. Our issue is that if we give Sasha a sippy cup she turns it over and shakes it until she makes water come out anyway. So she is just spilling on purpose.
