Reply Upstatemamma March 22, 2012 - 2:01 pm Ha ha ha aha ha!!!! That is SO true!! Reply Ashley @ Mama Of All Trades March 22, 2012 - 2:02 pm 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. Reply Jennifer @ Also Known As the Wife March 22, 2012 - 2:09 pm 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! Reply A Man Called Dad March 22, 2012 - 2:21 pm Okay, fine. But don’t blame me for the fermented milk in the sofa or car! Sincerely, Dads Reply Jill March 22, 2012 - 2:24 pm Lol. Touche. Reply Chris @ CleverFather March 22, 2012 - 10:29 pm As a Dad, I endorse this message 😛 Reply KatherineA March 22, 2012 - 2:59 pm hahaha! Spot on, yet again. Reply Leslie March 22, 2012 - 3:12 pm Thank you! My husband is out of town and it took me 2 days and several tries to get the damn apple juice opened. Reply Loleta March 22, 2012 - 3:54 pm 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!! Reply Kami March 22, 2012 - 4:51 pm :::vomits::: This is when I throw the cup away, lol Reply Jenna March 22, 2012 - 5:53 pm Totally. Ya gotta love the take & toss sippy cups. We re-use them…until they’re too gross to open. Reply Kami March 22, 2012 - 6:35 pm AMEN!!! Reply Gale March 22, 2012 - 10:58 pm Amen! Reply Sarah @ BecomingSarah.com March 22, 2012 - 11:52 pm 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. Reply Monica March 23, 2012 - 12:35 am 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. 😀 Reply Rebecca March 23, 2012 - 12:59 am I know exactly what you mean.. EW. Reply molly March 23, 2012 - 10:32 am Oh, yes. I feel you on this one! Reply Rene Edmondson March 25, 2012 - 12:08 pm 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. Reply Stacey Sparrow April 12, 2012 - 2:29 pm 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!
