No, those things don’t really have anything in common. At least I hope not.
I’ve already lost a pacifier. Two in fact. How is possible that I could lose a pacifier in just a few days? I blame it on the dog. So, now we have just one pacifier. If you know how I feel about pacifiers, (check it out, here, here, and here to re-cap. YES I talk about pacifiers a lot.) you’ll see that this is just another reason why I dislike these things. But get this, my baby found his thumb in the middle of the night. I wake up to him sucking on his thumb/fingers/hand. He’s still working on how it all works, hence the huge amount of saliva that comes out of his mouth. It’s pretty dang cute. But now I’m like, get that hand out of your mouth! It looks ridiculous! Are your hands clean?!
Kidding. Totally Kidding.
It might not be a good idea to hold a naked baby on your lap for a few minutes while your husband gets the bath water ready. He (the baby, not the husband) might pee on you. It also might not be the best idea to hold your clean baby in a clean warm towel while your husband runs to find the camera. He (the baby, not the husband) might poop in it, resulting in your hand feeling all warm and tingly, realizing your son just pooped through the towel, on your hand, and is now sitting in his own poop. Bath time round two.
