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.
