Mommy Truth: Stop Exerting Excessive Force, Dude

If you’ll excuse me, I must get back to doing the dishes.

  • Rusti - ewwwwwwww.ReplyCancel

  • Upstatemamma - Ha ha ha aha ha!!!! That is SO true!!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley @ Mama Of All Trades - Right? I’ve stopped cleaning the sippy cups until he gets home at night because I already know I won’t be able to open any of them.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer @ Also Known As the Wife - Amen!

    Sippy cup, soda bottle, pickle jar…doesn’t matter; they’re all screwed on so tightly I need a socket wrench to open anything with a screw on lid in this house!ReplyCancel

  • A Man Called Dad - Okay, fine. But don’t blame me for the fermented milk in the sofa or car!


  • KatherineA - hahaha! Spot on, yet again.ReplyCancel

  • Leslie - Thank you! My husband is out of town and it took me 2 days and several tries to get the damn apple juice opened.ReplyCancel

  • Loleta - So true!! My other half says it’s to help them not spill. Well then how do you explain the rest of the fridge, lol!!ReplyCancel

  • Kami - :::vomits:::

    This is when I throw the cup away, lolReplyCancel

  • Gale - Amen!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah @ - We have a water-only policy for sippy cups for just that reason!

    And also: my husband and your husband are, sadly, birds of a feather. Ugh. It’s gotten to the point where I almost don’t allow my husband to actually close a sippy cup on his own because the man cannot be trusted to stop at a reasonable point lol.ReplyCancel

    • Monica - Haha so funny! Yep we only put water in our sippy cups too… except for the occasional 1/5th part juice. I’ve been pretty good about rinsing them out though! And since I’m usually the one to get the cup… I’m able to take it off. 😀ReplyCancel

  • Rebecca - I know exactly what you mean.. EW.ReplyCancel

  • molly - Oh, yes. I feel you on this one!ReplyCancel

  • Rene Edmondson - My husband wonders why I get out a new sippy cup every time they want a refill. We end up with like 5 cups per child by the end of the day and it drives my husband crazy. Hey, I don’t screw them on that tight and they never leak. It’s just an exertion of manhood, I’m sure of it.ReplyCancel

  • Stacey Sparrow - Thank GOD it’s not just me!! There’s nothing I love more than finally opening the cup and hearing the slurp of the fermented milk as I try to shake it out!ReplyCancel
