Fit for a Queen... I Mean King
For a while know, I have been trying to find a small, glass cup to offer to Elias during meal and snack time so that he can begin to gain control and confidence in taking his own drinks from an open cup. Tonight he was drinking his milk from this (one of my favorite) small china teacup. The pattern is a gorgeous blue with twirling vines and a golden rim. He seemed to feel so proud using it and certainly fell right into the etiquette and properness that one must assume when taking beverage from a teacup (notice the expression, daintily placed fingers and support offered from the opposite hand!).
Until I can put in the order I have planned for small "first glasses" and other tableware/personal care items from one of my favorite children's catalogs/sites- Montessori Services, I will offer this teacup to him. Who says that tea parties are just for girls...
