Loraine's helping her daughter help herself to a drink of water:
Our fridge doesn't have a water dispenser built in. As our baby grew into a preschooler, I soon realized our folly when I saw how easy it was for her to get her own water at Granny's house whenever she wanted.
But during a recent trip, I found a water dispenser that sits in your fridge. It has a spout and my daughter can easily work it to get her own water whenever she wants. Sometimes, I even hear her get up in the middle of the night and go for a drink of water.
Of course, an easier bathroom faucet with a step would accomplish the same thing, but this is a quick fix that provides wonderfuly cold water for the whole family – and all her visiting friends.
We just keep a Brita filter pitcher on the counter, but then, we like our at water room temperature.
