A Pacifier

I hate pacifiers! My son, however, sucked everything he could get his mouth on from the first hour after he was born. We used a pacifier for about 6 months and I hated looking at it every time -- but it sure was useful in the car and stuff like that.

My first daughter would have nothing to do with a pacifier. We learned to live without. So this time, I was fairly resistant to even bothering with them. However, the baby seems more like her brother in many ways and I did want to be able to drive without screams from her mingling with the arguments from the other two and I like to be able to pass her off to her dad for a little while now and then. So I boiled up some pacifiers last night.

She took right to them. I sure hate seeing her all plugged up, but it is convenient and leaves my pinkie free for other things.


y'know, those pacifiers that have a goofy grin on the outside are funny as hell. I was at the store once, never seen one before, and there was a baby in the cart with mom, and i looked at the kid and he had one of those goofy-grin pacifiers in, and i about died laughing. hehe.
