Addicted to Cup Holders

Posted on May 11, 2013


I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to cup holders.

I bitch obsessively when the zip car we rent dosent have adequate cup holding capabilities.

I’ve been known to complain while in others people’s car when there isn’t an accessible holder.

Ive even asked the stewardess why there arent cup holders on airplanes.

Quite simply – I like a place to put my beverage.

So one could imagine – When Lil Johnny joined our world, there was an awful lot of consideration given to the cup holder accessibility when looking at strollers.
It was almost the most important factor. That and that it had 4 wheels and could carry a baby.

Even though the cup holder jets out from my stroller adding an additional 4 inches to my already wide load – I love it. I use it every day. It makes me happy.

Why the addiction? I have approximately 4 coffees a day. And drink lots of water. And drink even more wine. And Yes…I have put wine in the stroller cup holder before. Don’t judge me.

So a week ago, when in buying the next big baby purchase – the Stage II Car Seat, I started grinning from ear to ear when I saw it had a built in cup holder. How fuckin brilliant.

Today we took our first ride with the new car seat. As a new mom and one who also likes to be chauffeured (who doesn’t?) I decided to sit next to Little Johnny in the back seat of our rental car.

Got in the car – looked around the back seat…No fucking cup holder for my coffee. Not One.

It only took about 3 seconds… That brand spanking new car seat cup holder was holding my venti-caffeine-addict-coffee before Lil Johnny was even buckled in.

I’ve never been so happy.

Look- It may be the best and safest car seat on the market – but its also a built in guarantee of always having a cup holder.

The best $300 cup holder ever.

And worth every frickin penny.
