I'm Batman... Cup!

First- who doesn't hear Will Arnett's voice from the LEGO movie when you hear the words 'I'm Batman'? Just sayin'. I couldn't resist having a little fun with the title of this post! ;)

There are lots of milestones when it comes to kids, from the first birthday, first tooth, and first word to other, smaller ones that still mark a special moment in time- like that transition from bottles to 'big kid' cups. And with it that feeling that your baby isn't such a baby anymore (insert crying eyes emoji). We've been giving our little dude cups for a while, and we recently made the leap to this more grown- up/ sporty style cup. He loves it, I love that it's bigger and doesn't leak, and can take the abuse of a semi- toddler. 

Whether we're eating at the table, playing in the backyard, or on the go, I like having cups, bowls, etc that are durable and don't break/ crack. Bonus points for being spill/ leak proof too (especially with this messy little guy!). Both kids have grown up using Playtex cups (you can see the other cups and bottles we've used here and here) and so far they've survived the tantrums, throwing, and dropping that two rambunctious kids have put them through. Some days these cups put up with the kids better than I do!... insert wine joke. ;)

Ari wasn't too challenging when it came to getting her to drink water, but it took a bit more effort with Liam. Now that he drinks it no problem- and especially with the heat of the Summer- I take water with us everywhere (I've even stolen sips from theirs when I've run out! ;) ) and this sports- style cup is getting well- used. It's insulated so it keeps the water cool, which I appreciate when it's a hot day, and like the other cups from Playtex we have, it's easy to clean- just pop everything in the dishwasher- and has seen it's share of abuse in the short time we've had it. I've even forgotten to put the straw in it once or twice and Liam can still drink from it spill free by tipping it. Yay for Mom- brain- proof products! 

Even though the kids aren't heading to preschool or kindergarten just yet, I think these cups would be great to pop into backpacks and come in a variety of cute designs (including Superman- not going to lie, I had a hard time choosing for Liam but the LEGO movie helped me decide, even if it was just because I could hear Will Arnett's voice in my head when I saw it- lol the things that make me laugh these days...). Playtex has served our family well with it's variety of cups that grow as your kids do, and it's been fun picking out things for Liam that aren't hand- me- downs from his big sister, including his new Batman cup.
