Great plan! I started giving my 3 y/o coffee mugs – harder to tip with that wide base.

I know that pain & frustration! Match up lids & cups, toss the rest. From here out, only put them back in the drawer with the lid on. Worked for us!

That’s exactly what I did last night. Can’t take it anymore!

It’s like the Tupperware drawer as well!
But your solution is perfect. Plus, glass doesn’t leach into the food or drink.

i had the same irritating problem with my gremlins..just start with a ceramic mug..if she breaks doesnt shatter in as many pieces as a glass..and theres that nifty handle in the side 😛

Isn’t June a Montessori child? According to Montessori philosophy children are not supposed to use sippy caps at any age. They supposed to use glass (or ceramic) right away. It will break, but by breaking it they will learn to be more careful.
I must say that it works well. I gave my 6 month old a little glass glass. He broke it very quickly, but the next one didn’t break for a very long time. He really does learn to be more careful. I say, chuck all that plastic stuff out!

You’re so right. I guess I’m slow to adapting the Montessori philosophy.

I never had so many cups for my children. I had two. Easier to keep track, not so much crazy clutter.
