Mama Sippy

This morning I walked into the kitchen and Ian was sitting at the island doodling on a paper while eating his breakfast. Over and over again I kept hearing him say:

"Sippy mama."

"Mama sippy"

"Sippy mama"

Finally he looked up and asked me, "What is it called again?"

I told him I had no idea what he was talking about. Somewhat frustrated he said, "There is a city or something called Mama Sippy."

"Oh! Mississippi!" I said.

"Mississippi! Yep. That's it." he said relieved.

Then he took his pencil and crossed out Mama sippy and wrote 'Mrs. sippy'.


  1. Aubrey used to think during hide and seek the boys were counting "one sippy cuppy, two sippy cuppy..." instead of "one mississippi, two mississippi..." I guess it's a confusing word.
    I love this post.

  2. Oh my gosh, that is right up there with Chuck E. Jesus! So cute!
