I’m sure that this is an oft blogged about topic in land of mommyblogs. What happens to all the sippy cups? Where do they go? Is there a wasteland of half-full (or half-empty…however you look at it) sippy cups somewhere?
Yesterday when emptying the dishwasher, I noticed that there were waaaay more lids than cups. I thought to myself, “Self, the cups must be in the cupboard, waiting patiently for the return of their lids.”
No such luck. No sad and lonely cups in the cupboard. Just a bunch of lids sans cups.
I checked all of Peanut’s hiding places. I’ve checked under the coffee table. Under the couches. In his room. In the car (which I never let him have but one special cup in the car that IS actually leak proof).
I did not check in the garbage. We can afford more.
I thought to blame Tate. (I’m good at blaming.) Surely he had something to do with the cups disappearances. But, really, what would he want with the cups? He knows not to come to me for the ransom, I’m not good for it. And, the cups are too small for his beers. So, I guess I can scratch him off my list.
My dogs aren’t smart enough or tall enough to steal sippy cups.
Is it the dishwasher? I think the cups are a wee too big to fit in the drain.
I am thoroughly confused!
Am I the only one who has this problem? Am I just crazy? Don’t answer the part about me being crazy, please.
