    I'm reserving it for you. If I drink one carton, you'd have one less carton to drink.



    Child: Why are you not drinking? Don't you like juice?

    Parent: I'm reserving it for you. If I drink one carton, you'd have one less carton to drink. And say there is only one carton left. If I drink one now, you won't have any more left to drink tomorrow.

    Is reserving the correct word? Do you call it a carton or a box, or something else? Is you won't have any more left to drink tomorrow correct and natural?

    Say I'm saving it for you. "Carton" is okay, but "box" is probably more common for those little juice boxes.
