Another wise investment

I had to talk myself into ordering this from Tupperware. It was slightly more than I wanted to spend for a 'mini pitcher and cup' set. I was thinking it would be more hassle (for me) than fun (for the kids) But once again... I was proven wrong.
I knew the kids would love it. And they do. The cups (there are 4 of them - just the perfect # for us) are (too) small. (But the smaller the cup, the smaller the spill) Refilling them (often)is much fun. (So far) not too much spilling. Mom likes them because it makes the kids happy (and their plastic - won't break) and it makes learning to help themselves fun and easy.
And a note to G'pa, G'ma and everyone else.. this will likely be the last post for the week.
I'll still stop by and check out yours... so get updating!! But for the 1st time in a loong time, we have a week with nothing planned- no appts, nowhere to go, no one (extra) to watch... So instead of wasting, I mean spending, all my 'extra' time on here... I'll be enjoying it with my kids and working on this . I've found the computer is a real time-drainer/waster. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE looking at everyones blogs (and your FB pages) but everyone suffers at my house when I keep myself planted in front of the computer for too long.
Now if only the sun would come out and bring warmer weather.. we'd really be set. But at least it's not raining... yet! :)

That's a nice set! And a great skill for kids to learn so it's good to have a small sized set just for them. I have 3 of the large pitchers like that & I like them a lot.
