Kids and Cups...

Kelli at There is No Place Like Home is hosting Show and Tell Friday. I thought I would share with you these cups we have been using this summer. I was tired of washing cups all day long so I purchased these from Walmart.com. The kids are NOT allowed to use any other cups. It's help cut down my dish washing time and also having cups all over the counters.



I also wanted to share this card I found on my desk from my youngest, Zachary. ZM for short. It says "frum Zachary".



"I Luv You Mom"


Isn't it darling with the rainbow and stick people holding hands. It just melts my heart and makes all the stress of raising kids worth it.

This is Zachary.


He's such a character. The most lovable little guy. He always has a smile on his face.




He has this obsession with taking silly pictures of himself.












Okay, this one is not so silly!



Have a great weekend!

Brandee,
Zachary is just too cute and I LOVE all his funny pictures!! Great pic of the two of you. Aren't little drawings and cards just special and sweet cause they were just thinking of you when they make them!

Your cup idea is brilliant. I can't tell you how many times this summer I have had 8 glasses on the counter and said "whose are these?" with a reply of "not mine", I have threatened to have them swabbed for DNA. Now with this idea there would be only 3 cups on the counter and no denying who they belong to. Love your blog. Paula

You have a very handsome son, I love all the pictures of him, I know he is the love of your life.

The whole blog entry is fantastic, but I must say the card on your desk melted my heart!!!


My show n tell isn't what I had planned to do this week, the hurricane Dolly prevented me to have much online time this week since the time I did have was updating on the storm coming through our area. Next week, I hope to have my 'tears' show n tell. This week, I opted with photos I had on the computer already - bric a brac in our master bath. Come by if you can. I'd love a visit from you...and, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

I love your silly pictures. They are great.
We employed something similar to your picture cups. I bought everyone their own color cup and it has worked pretty well.

The mugs are such a GREAT idea! I wash a billion cups in the summer. Hope you are well. I'm returning to "the valley" on Tuesday, so we should get together. :)

Those mugs are super! I seriously need to do something about our cup situation...I'm drowning in cups!!! Did you go see Mamma Mia!? What'd you think?

P.S. Thanks for your comment on my "prayer" post...I LOVE the way you think!

Gotta love those boys. What is it with their "self portraits?" Mine keeps wanting me to load them but it's much cuter when their your sons age not almost a teen...hee hee. First time visitor. Loved browsing.:)

MyJourneyBack said...

Oh Brandee I just found the dog post. How cute they are.
You have to come by tomorrow and visit. My Daisy just loved meeting them today.
Smiles,
Sherry and Daisy

What a great idea with the cups! What fun and entertaining pictures! Won't it be fun to see what ZM does when he grows up? :). Great post!

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Love the cup idea.

I feel like I wash 100 cups a day in the summer.

Pajama Mama said...

i do the same thing! Each of mine has their own sippy cup-and that's it for the day! Amazing how much more room I have in the dishwasher now!
And thanks for the inspiration this week on shopping the house for accessories...everything's been moved this week, and I love it! why didn't i do this sooner?

Zachary is adorable and what a sweet card he made for you! I also love your idea of using the same cups all day....we have the same problem at our house!

There is no better art than the art created by children.

Laura said...

Brandee! You guys are soo cute! He is going to be a heartbreaker one day! I hate cups on the counter also, I always get in trouble because my hubby sets his down next to the sink and I automatically put it in the dishwasher! I hate dirty dishes in the sink, a little obsessive maybe? Have a good weekend!

Hi again! On youtube.com there is this sweet video called "let's see the dog whisperer do this". When you get the chance look it up, it's really cute!

Thanks for stopping by my bloggy page.

That little man of yours is too stinking cute. I often find pictures of my son on my camera that he has taken of himself. Cracks me up!

Now, I'm off to exlpore your page. Nice to meet you, I'm Brandi (spelled differently of course) too.
