The other night Jason and I realized we are doomed. We better hope and pray now Jacob never gets into drugs. If he does we will NEVER find his secret stash.
That night, we searched for 2 hours straight for even one of his 4 missing paci's. Searching with flashlights we looked in every nook and corner, of the house. I did find 2 which had been lost eons ago, but none of the original 4.
Why the need for so many Pacifiers you ask? If your asking I'm assuming your child is not a paci sucker. If they were, you would understand the need for so many. I've had plenty of sleepless nights looking for a paci's, he has either spit or thrown across the room. I've been half asleep crawling on the floor in the dark, searching for paci's. Searching his covers, in between the cracks of the crib, all over, all night.Trust me, we NEED 5 paci's! My brilliant idea? I'll buy lots of paci's, and every night I'll put them all around his head. This way he is surely to find one of them, if he wakes up. And Ta-da it worked!! There was only one draw back to my master plan. Now he is not only addicted to one paci but 5! Every morning we have to carry ALL of them, for about an hour. Taking turns sucking each one. From there they go up to the cabinet, until bedtime. ( My new rules since the missing incident)
The day after the missing 4~
All paci's that morning went to the cabinet, per the new rule. Except the missing ones of course! Which made their way one by one, as I found Jacob sucking on them. Where did he find them? I still have no idea? All I know is the little Houdini, could have saved us a whole lot of headache, if he had been awake.
When should he give up the paci(s)? Dr.'s say sucking needs end after 6 months. Other people argue over the dental issues and appearance. Blah blah blah...
Personally I don't care about what the statistics are or everyone's opinions.
Right now I'm thinking, the Easter Bunny's little bunnies may need them, so we may shoot for that!
