This is Charis's birthday week. So, I decided to buy hot chocolate and allow her to drink one cup per day until it runs out. This morning she insisted on using the Jemina Puddle-Duck china cup which was given to her by Aunt Alice. I decided to let my child use china. I don't want to keep it locked up for vanity purposes-only to be taken out once a year and have it marveled at. Ironically, she has not broken any china plates or bowls, but has broken one everyday cup.
