To have and to hold...for awhile longer

OK this is my sweet baby Connor











and that critter beside him is his beloved wubba. Connor was my first baby to take a paci and this is quite possibly because he was the most difficult baby I had and I would have bought him a new Corvette if it would've made him stop crying for five minutes. What no mother of the year award...well keep reading and I am pretty sure I will be permanently removed from the nomination.

OK he cried...ALOT so I found something that would help soothe him and everybody thought he was so cute cuddling with his new little friend. The only problem is now that he is two people want to start advising me on taking it from him, bad teeth blah blah blah and while I appreciate advice I am not one to typically take it if I don't want to. I trust the instincts God blessed me with to know what is best and my instincts (along with the dentist) says he is fine! In fact that's the only advice I would ever try and give a mother, go with your gut, your heart and medical professionals. Google and Facebook can really get you mixed up sometimes.

Now put down your phone. DSS does not care that my child is still on a paci and occasionally a bottle (yeah there went the nomination..right?) and I do NOT mind at all. My main priority in life is to raise happy, healthy boys and so far we are ok. If I need help I am not ashamed to ask and neither should anyone else be but if what you are doing is safe and it works for you GO FOR IT. Society is not in the living room with you at 3am on your 495th rendition of Rock a Bye Baby so why should they get the say on what decisions you make?

Besides I certainly plan to take it from him before he graduates...college that is. And if you don't like whats in his mouth just focus on those amazing baby blues

    Girl, just realized you had this page! I love love love this! And those pretty blue eyes of his! He's a doll! I wouldn't take his paci away either! Although I must admit, I am one of those who have tried to take my nephew's paci away from him. And btw, it works just like a dream......until he's ready for me to give it back to him that is! ;P

  5. Hahaha Yes I agree! There are some things that need a stopping point or at least some secrecy lol. I don't think he is going to appreciate that cover when he is older.

  6. I Love this one!! I have 5 and I am so sick of people who do not know me or my children thinking they can tell me how to raise them!!I will Potty train them when THEY are ready.(WE are the ones buying all the Pampers, NOT anyone else) And they will give up there paci's on there own!! I will encourage both, but I choose my battles and this these to me are not worth fighting! If by some long shot they need braces when there older thats fine I will pay for them. (Again no money out of anyone elses pocket!) and kids these day want braces. Anyone that knows me knows how I feel about this kind of stuff, and anyone that don't needs to just save there breath...cause I am not listening! Love all your blogs! Keep up the good Work!
