My big boy and his new cup

Ryan is a big boy, just ask him. Call him your little peanut and he’ll correct you with, “No, I’m a BIG peanut!” The other day I told him he couldn’t get any bigger, he had to stay my little boy and he replied, “but mom, I AM getting bigger!” He’s too smart for me.

This gets us into trouble sometimes. He thinks he’s big enough to drive the car… to walk in the street alone… to cook his mac & cheese on the stove… and to drink out of mommy’s and daddy’s nice glasses (remember, he’s two… “and a half!”).

Now about last one–we can do something about that and we HAVE to: we’ve lost one too many glasses as they shattered on the floor and we’ve spent too much time making sure every tiny piece of glass was gone AND all spilled juice was wiped up. Those stains on our couches and floor though? Some are there to stay. Ryan is a big boy, but not quite big enough for “mommy’s and daddy’s glasses.”

The problem? Ryan is too big for bottles and he’s too big for spouts. Sure, he can still use them, but he doesn’t like to. It’s not a “big boy cup.” GAH! We’ve tried a couple solutions–straw cups, smaller spouts, the coolest looking designed cups we could find–but like I said, Ryan is too smart for us, we weren’t fooling anyone.

I love Tommee Tippee. We’ve used their breast pump, baby bottles, sip cups, spout cups, water bottles, bowls, easy mat, and now… their Explora Drinking Cup. I’ve loved every previous bottle and cup of theirs and this new one for Ryan is no different… it’s a favorite of Ryan’s and we all know if the kid is happy, mom is happy! {read on for a giveaway!}

The cup has like a mini-spout… it makes it easy for Ryan to drink out of without spilling, but it’s not like a sippy cup spout that makes him feel like a “baby.” It’s a lot more like he’s drinking out of a REAL cup. The cup is insulated to keep drinks cool (great for our hot days at the park), holds 9oz, which has been plenty, and is recommended for ages 2 and up.

These are now my go-to cups and that’s why I’m excited to share them with all of you! We have two of them and I’m always disappointed when I discover they’re both dirty at the same time and I have to find a new cup to use, haha.

Ryan explains his new cup, "I drink from right here!"

I better not forget these important parts: the drinking cups are spill-proof (with an inner valve), they’re BPA-, PVC- and phthalate-free, and they’re dishwasher safe. The suggested retail price is $8.99 for a pack of two drinking cups, which I think is an awesome deal, and you can find the Tommee Tippee Explora line at Target stores nationwide and at!
