3B has become fascinated over the last several weeks with pouring out the contents of his sippy cups. We’ve stymied his experiments by only giving him sippies with lids that require suction to get the contents out, like his Klean Kanteens with Avent sippy lids, and avoiding those that let the contents run out, like his Sigg or Born Free sippies.
Last night, while we were driving to Noodles & Co. to pick up dinner, our little genius found a loophole. He now sucks up a mouthful of water and spits it out. Yes, in the car seat. Yes, on himself.
And then, when he’s out of water and thirsty, 3B cries out, “No! No! No! You [read: I] can’t have any water!”
To which I said, “That’s right. You can’t have any water because you spit it all out.”
We repeated this exact exchange several times while waiting for Mama to return to the car with dinner until I finally found some water in another bottle to refill his sippy with.
He took a huge pull from his refilled sippy, puffing out his cheeks to take it all in, looked straight at me with a devilish twinkle in his eyes, and pursed his lips. Looking down at his already soaking wet shirt and shorts and car seat, I said what popped into my mind.
“Here’s hoping your diaper doesn’t explode.”
