  • I believe that you are referring to a Sip n See. In the South it is generally for babies, but you can have one for any visiting relative to just catch up. But it's not just held by the grandmother. It can be any family member.

  • I think you should just stick to calling it a Something & Something. Has a certain ring to it.

  • hee hee normal.


    I want to say it was something about tea and a baby.... rhyming words maybe.


    I heard it from a southern black woman, years ago.... an old term.

  • oh, well i hope noone takes offense to this but the way southern black women and southern white women have traditions or what not, is really different.

  • I was born and raised in the south and I have never heard of such a thing! Maybe if you google the term you think it is you will find what you're looking for. I asked my mom (71) and my great aunt (84) and neither of them have heard of this. GL.
