I rarely give my kids plastic cups anymore - too tipable. Big old heavy glasses are rarely spilled, and we, too have carpet, so even if they do, they won't break. Great metaphor though. (:
@Marianne I really don't know why I haven't changed out the kids' cups yet... they are practically designed to tip their entire contents. Big heavy glasses may making an appearance in my near future.
You make me giggle, and I needed a giggle tonight. Thank you, thank you.
You are very welcome, Rachel. :)
