Fill the day's sippy cups

Sara forwards us this tip from one of her local-mom lists:

I found that it was a big time saver to fill all of my daughter's sippy cups in the morning and keep them in the refrigerator on the bottom shelf. That way, when she was thirsty or if we needed to go and I wanted to bring one with us, she could open the fridge and get it herself. Sounds simple and like no big deal but it saved me from putting the baby down, getting out the juice, the water and the cup and taking the 5 mins to get it ready. Also, she felt like a really "BIG GIRL" which was important at that time for her.
