I Did a Bad Bad Thing...

Today I did a bad bad thing...My poor baby has been sick for a week and she has absolutely whined and cried her eyes out. Like lay in the floor and cry and weep...

She has discovered that sippies of warm milk and mommy holding her are the only thing that can help. Yesterday she drank one sippy after another and managed to get constipated....that didn't help the crying.

Today is the third day of the nonstop crying...and today I broke out the Pacifier. Yep the pacifier that she has been rid of for over a month...but I did a bad bad thing and I gave it back. And you know what it helped...

Yes I know it will be torture getting her to part with it again.

Yes I know she's too old for it.

Yes I recall the reason we took Noah's away is that it was starting to mess up his front teeth...oh yeah her front teeth are already messed up (you know like missing..)

But you know what else I know, I am the Mommy and it's Mommy's job to make things better.

But for today I did a bad bad thing...but I have a happier baby


And I heart happy babies...

I also heart husbands who work through their lunch hours to come home early to help out with the sick little ones so mommy can take a shower! They're the BEST!!!

Bless your heart! Don't beat yourself up.....it'll be ok! When she's twenty and getting ready to get married it won't really matter that you gave her the pacifier back. :-) That made me think of Jodi and how she dearly loved hers. She would walk around with one in each hand and one in her mouth.....and now she's getting married in 8 days!!! :-(

I don't blame you at all! At least you can still say that it's not as bad as me...Ethan has only been without his for a couple months and he will be 3 next month! :)

Macy took her paci until she was 3 1/2---Lily has more time! Plus I won't say who is 8 and still sucking her thumb.....a pacifier is not 1/2 as bad as that! Hope Lily gets feeling better:)

First of all, it's called survival of the Mommy. Don't sweat over it! We have all had a similar moment and if someone says they haven't they are lying!! Hope she is better soon.

Second, what is with the viagra comment??? Don't tell me blogs are getting crazy comments now too!
