Pacifiers, Apparently God's Gift To Luke
So, we decided that we would take Luke's pacifier away. He's only had it during naps and at night for the past five months or so, so it really wasn't that big of a deal. EXCEPT...he started waking up about an hour earlier than normal in the morning and from his naps. Now THAT is a big deal. After not having it for three days, he wasn't even asking for it when we put him in the bed. He would say, "Pappy, gone-gone." We would say, "Yep, it's all gone" and that would be the end of it. As much as it pained me to give it back to him last night, I was too desperate for him to sleep longer not to at least try. Drum roll please...he slept until almost eight this morning. I have it on good authority that children usually give up their pacifiers before they go to college. Well, he'll have to do it all on his own because I'm not taking that little boy's pappy away again.
