As Elise gets a little older, we have increased her responsibilities and are encouraging her to gain some independence. She is learning to do new things everyday and we are doing everything that we can to equip her for success.
While it seems small, teaching her to get herself water to drink on her own has given her a little boost of confidence. She is so proud of herself! And we are going to use this idea from Made Everyday with Dana to cut down on cups used per day and to keep her cup at the ready.
A cute cup, a magnet, some glue and there you have it! Her cup will stick to the fridge and she will always have one where she can reach it.
Maybe her Daddy can stick a cup to the fridge and cut down on the number that he uses, too...
