I don't give it to the youngest but I voted yes because she will steal it every chance she gets. With three (forgetful) coffee drinkers in the house it happens often enough to count. It never seems to make her any more hyper than usual though.

I just asked my 4 year old DD if she wanted a cup of coffee. She said, "Mommy, kids don't drink caffeine!"

I'm with Drummer's Wife - sips. Honestly, I've given my DS a sip of anything he's asked for. I don't pop the cap off his own Guinness, nor does he have his own travel mug of Joe - but in his particular case, he loses interest faster than if I made him sit there and covet something Mommy and Daddy get to have but not him.

(If there were an icon for chasing a little boy around 24/7 I'd post that one)
