A couple months ago, I looked at down at my beautiful daughter Kailey smiling back at me with this pacifier in her mouth. And I thought too myself🤔; This stupid thing will probably have me invest in braces in the future, what about all the bacteria this thing accumulates? & I have to buy so many because If I ever forget it one day, it’s becomes a fussy day, And also for sanitary reasons I do change them monthly. I even thought of her being teased because of her teeth, because she would probably start sucking her finger in place of this contraption. I snapped back to reality and pulled that pacifier out so quick! She cried like she never cried before 😩 My heart 💔 broke seeing her that way, and this was around bedtime. we stayed up about 3 extra hours that night I almost gave up. She finally gave me an exhausted, teary eyed hug and fell soundly asleep. We went through this cycle for about a week and a half. She even saw one laying around one day and popped it right in her mouth, I grabbed it and threw every last one in the garbage. This experience help me understand so much more about life. When things we take comfort in are ripped away because God sees the ripple effect of issues that come with it. I am grateful for such a small lesson. Today Kailey does NOT use or need a pacifier ! she’s over it 💁🏽 lol. What are some of your pacifiers?
