There are times, as a parent, that we fall into patterns of behavior that last way longer than our children’s development needs. For instance, I realized today that my son was fully capable of drinking out of a cup and does so in many situations. Somehow mealtime milk is still being served in a sippy cup. I have no idea how this one persisted so long, but I started giving him a cup today. Wow, did that one zoom by unnoticed!
