Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

Well, I Suppose Sippy Cups Really are For Chardonay -- or Merlot!

I have a pretty good idea who did this!


It's no secret that I enjoy a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. It's beneficial for the heart (antioxidants) as well as the soul, my soul! I often leave it on the counter next to me while I work in the kitchen in the evening, or next to my computer on my desk, such as now. I try to leave my beverages out of the reach of little hands as I worry about Alexander reaching up, toppling the glass and ruining everything in sight. I also have to watch out for Christopher, my secret sipper, who has been known to steal a drink from whatever I may have in my glass at that moment.

Last night I was enjoying a nice glass of merlot and Alexander was enjoying a nice chilled cup of water in his brand new PBK sippy cup reminiscent of a baby beer stein! You can place the base of the cup in the freezer for the ultimate frosty mug effect. We were both quite happy. I left for a quick moment to run upstairs for a pair of pajamas for Alexander and came back to a very amusing sight!
