our son loves his root beer. he would drink root beer every day if he could, but he can't cuz we are mean parents. and he loves drinking out of a straw. he was 4 or 5 when he finally was able to suck strongly enough to use a straw. we had many trips on the road, and many trips to the fast food places that were aggravating, cuz he couldn't use a straw ( he didn't do well with sippy cups either) this photo reminds us that good things do happen and our kids do accomplish great things, including learning to sip thru a straw!
