I am so frustrated right this minute. My son has 5 pacifiers...FIVE and he's having a fit right now, not wanting to take a nap, because I can't find ANY of the paci's. I do a paci count every day and as of last night I had 3 of the 5. I don't know what the heck he DOES with them and I'm just so....I wanna scream right now. I think the last time I had all the paci's was about 2 weeks ago. I'll never forget seeing them all nice and clean on the counter in the kitchen. See, when I give him one and he loses it, I'll go find it and keep track of it. But not my husband, nooooo. He just grabs a clean one and next thing I know I'm where I am now and I'm just so sick of it. I know this probably sounds trivial to most of you and maybe it is. Part of me wonders if this is my son's way of telling me he doesn't want them anymore but then he throws a fit like just now because he has none. I've sworn I'm not buying anymore but I can just see myself sprinting through Target later to buy one when I can't stand it anymore. In all the months of bottle feeding with Dr. Brown's bottles, I never ONCE lost a part of any of the bottles. So why can't I keep track of the paci's? I've torn my relatively clean house up twice today looking but I swear, they aren't here. I think there is a paci fairy...an evil paci fairy...who sneaks into my house at night and collects them and hides them in the walls or something and then peers out at me through a light socket, giggling softly to himself as he watches me hunt.......sigh........thanks, I feel better. Anyone else even come close to understanding this particular frustration?
