Literally. All over. And not in a good way.
I want to drink like a big kid, out of a cup, but I always seem to spill more than I swallow. So Mama went in search of a solution. Sugar Booger by ORE created a big boy cup with a spouted lid, making it easier for me to do it by myself. This ‘sippy cup’ doesn’t make you sip or suck, just tip it and drink. Free flowing. Just like a big kid.
It is a durable melamine 6 oz cup, with two easy to hold handles and a super cute design. The cup can be used with or without the plastic lid. And they fit so nicely together that this sippy cup is leak free!!! Yes I said it, LEAK FREE. (But don’t worry, I can still tip it upside down and ‘water’ my tray with no problem!)
A Note From Mama: Finding the perfect sippy cup is hard. So many fall short of my expectations … and I am not asking for a lot. All I want is a lightweight, easy to hold, cute, leak free cup that Cole can’t chip the paint off of. And so far, Sugar Booger has created a cup that fits the bill!
If your answer is yes, have I got a treat for you! Last week, Mama had the pleasure of sampling this amazing cupcake bite from a local bakery, Crave. It was a moist cake covered in chocolate shaped like a cupcake. Sound amazing? It gets better … the baker, Jenn, also makes rainbow squares and truffles!!! Available in many flavors and assortments, these sweet treats are sure to be a hit for any occasion. These made to order delights are so good that I would recommend getting yourself a box too!
Check out her Facebook page for all the available flavors. Valentine’s Day orders must be in by Feb 8th, 2011.
