It was the day of a friend’s event and the first time attending a more formal affair with the kids. You can imagine the chaos getting out the door — with a very fussy and whiny toddler clinging onto our legs crying for one of us to hold him, we had to ensure we forgot nothing including the hostess gift, that we brought extra snacks, diapers and change of kids clothes  and still managing not to sweat through our designer duds before even getting to the party.  This is an average scenario going anywhere these days.  

My son needs his milk and we are weening him completely away from his bottle that he loves so much with Playtex® Cups so I made sure to have a full cup of milk in his new Playtime Straw Cup for the road.  In the commotion and rush we were in to beat traffic on the highway on a Friday evening, without thinking it through, I quickly threw the full cup of milk in my designer purse that was gifted to my for my 30th Birthday from my husband (I will not mention the price but let’s just say it will not be an easy item to replace should anything happen to it).  BIG MISTAKE… or it would have been had this been another training cup.

  1. I love that the slider keeps straw clean when closed! I need one of these cups. I’ve had water spill in my purse too many times.

  2. Thank goodness for leak proof and break proof cups now! Had a leak happen not long ago…needless to say it took some extensive cleaning of a certain bag….
