After that wonderful meal we put together yesterday I think our stomachs are up to this questions. Do you share drinks with your kids, grandkids or friends? Can, bottle or paper cup...do you share?

Oh man! I'd have to be mighty thirsty to share with a child. Do you have any idea the percentage of backwash they produce??? shocked And the germ factor?? smhair This is one reason I have fun cups for the kids....so I won't accidentally drink out of theirs. I have a set of white mugs that have little ceramic animal stuck on the bottom. You ought to see an unsuspecting kids face when he drinks his milk below the dragon level and sees there's something IN there staring back at him...lol Plus there is a collection of old A&W mugs they love. But mine??? Leave it alone! Often the 3 year old grandson will get my French Vanilla Cafe' and start chugging it down. At that point it becomes HIS French Vanilla Cafe'. ;-) The only person I ever share a sip of soda with is hubby...end of story. <shudder>

I am going to assume most of you are way more generous than I am and would share. Do you?

I have a story to tell about unintentional sharing  when in Germany I used to dip Copenhagen snuff, just a pinch between the cheek and gum, and I used a German  Ceramic Beer stien as a spit-toon. Anyway I had it sitting on the table and it was about quarter to half full. and My oldest daughter, she was about 2 or 3 or so years old anyway she grabbed the mug and started drinking out of it! She started spitting and spurting and crying and yelling Icky Poo! Icky Poo!  and we come running in and well I thought my wife was going to killl me right on the spot! She did not like me dipping anyway! Well Sarah never touched my spit-toon ever again, ( she was alright) no real harm done.   I actually kind of thought it was a wee bit funny, but I didn't dare laugh or any thing! nono But no I don't share drinks with anyone usually.  I quit smoking in 75 and took up dippin in 77 or 78 and did that till around 85 when I quit, and quitting dipping snuff was much harder than quitting smoking! But that is my story about sharing! smhair

I share drinks with my kid all the time unless one of us is sick. I really don't think about germs or anything like that. I figure living together and being around him 24/7 we share any germs we might have anyway.

I do have regular talks with him about how it is ok to share drinks with mommy and daddy but he shouldn't drink from the same cup with other people.

====================================================
I don't recall this as it happened when I was about 2 or 3 but it has been a "favorite" family story:

My Dad and grandpa were sitting on the porch drinking beer one afternoon while taking a break from working on one of my parent's cars. They didn't finish their beers when they got up and went back to work and left them sitting on the porch. I came along and drank the remainder of both cans. It was estimated that I had about a full can of beer between the two and was quite "tipsy" for some time afterwards.

After that there was rarely beer in or near our house again and if there was it was guarded like Fort Knox.

(Jim, I shortened up your divider marks === since they were making the page very W I D E! )

lol....You two men are hilarious! Jim, I would think you slept mighty fine that night but your parents might have been a bit concerned as to when you would ever wake up. You remind me of my parents little dog, the one we called "Pocket Puppy" among other names...lol One Christmas family and neighbors had been over for some hot toddy... Hot Buttered Rums to be exact. Apparently the one neighbor lady didn't finish hers and had left it on the floor beside her chair. Unbeknown to us the tiny dog, about 8# of fuzz and bark, decided he was entitled to some libation for the holiday and lapped up about a 1/2 cup of glog. A bit later that evening they discovered they had accidentally contributed to the delinquency of a minor dog...lol He tried walking across the room and it was a mighty long and windy journey. Dad figured he best take him outside to piddle before bed time so out they went, with the rest of us watching. That poor little boy was mighty shocked when he lifted his leg to water the bushes and over he went!...lmbo He finally squatted and staggered back into the house and slept off his inebriation. Wonder if he had a headache in the morning. Doggie hung?

Oh White beard...I do feel sorry for your daughter but...that should have been a serious lesson for her. Never tip up a cup and start drinking. I'm sure many families have the story of how someone poured a class full of a 'clear adult beverage' in a glass. Along comes a kid and helps himself to a drink of water. Probably singed all the hair off the tonsils and the top of the head too. I guess at some level it might not be funny since alcohol poisoning is very real...but your stories are a riot!! Did the experience keep her from ever smoking later in her life?

Ok I will admit when my kids where young that if they crept up behind me and took a sip it would then be theres..lol I realize I gave birth to them but think about where they have put their mouth that day.. EWWWW

Now that they are all older 15, 16 and 20 I don't mind if they want to try and new drink I have thought up or just need to take an asprine. My oldest on the other hand would NEVER drink from anyones drink or take a bite of someones food unless it was mine. To this day if I make something for dinner thats new he will only taste test my plate but NO ONE elses, it kinda funny

That is funny, Laurie! Even at 20 years old they are still our little boys. ;-)
