Warning!!


Do not put these things together - sippie cup, Sprite, purse and cell phone. The other night we went out for dinner, and since my youngest is almost potty trained, I didn't bring her diaper bag. So, I just threw her sippie cup (filled with Sprite) into my purse. Well, we got into the restaurant and I noticed my purse was "dripping". The sippie cup had leaked all over my felted wool purse. So after a quick trip to the restroom - I cleaned everything up, but I noticed my cell phone wouldn't work. I couldn't tell if it was on or off, and I couldn't make any phone calls - oh boy! We ended up taking it back to the cell phone service place and sure enough it was toasted (or should I say soaked!). This meant I needed to get a new cell phone. It is amazing in the 13 months since I got my last cell phone how much they have changed. If you are wondering - my purse is fine. The beauty of it - I just washed and felted it some more. So please listen to my warning - no sippie cups in purses!

Oy! Glad your purse is okay. (Uhm, yeah . . . I guess my priorities are a little out of whack . . . I'm such a yarn nerd. :-)

And hurray for not carrying a diaper bag! I can't wait for that day to come.

We need to invent a sippy that can actually hold pop!

Maybe the sippy doesn't work with pop because pop isn't good for kids? Just a thought from a mom who gives her kids pop whenever they beg for it. :) They really are into Caffeine free Diet Coke right now - I hear cola is great for teeth.

Isn't it illegal to have pop in a sippy cup??
