Indestructible.  A stainless steel sippy cup…

The day I posted the story about Gracie bouncing a hard plastic sippy cup off of my head, Gracie decides to spike one of her plastic sippy cups into our wood floor, shattering the cup and splashing the contents all over our family room.  After I clean the mess up, I get on the Internet thinking someone in the world has to have cups for kids like Gracie.  If nothing exists of the sort, I’m going to make one myself, I swear it.

Wouldn’t you know?!  Thermos makes them!  The FOOGOO sippy cup.  Harpsichord music plays in the background, bright sunlight parts clouded skies, people around the world break out and sing Kumbaya…

The time it takes for me to decide on buying the thing can be measured in nanoseconds.  I tell my mother about my purchase, and she says to me, “Well, if you thought the plastic cup hurt, wait until she throws a steel cup at your head.”  Hmmmm… she has a point.  Now I have to come up with a way to tether her cup to the dining table.  No problemo!  Some thin, stainless steel cable, some epoxy to mount a bracket to the cup, a clip to attach the cable to the bracket, and we’re in business.  Go ahead, Gracie.  Make… my… day.
