Today I as a mommy took a significant step in recognizing that my babies are not babies anymore.
I cleaned out a drawer in the kitchen that has some odds-n-ends in it. It included four pacifiers.
I threw them away.
I do not currently have a child that takes a pacifier. In fact the youngest two never would take one. That makes the "baby" that took a pacifier 5 1/2 years old. And she only took one until she was a year.
I almost cried when I threw them away. I thought maybe I should put them in a baby book. The baby book that has yet to be completed. I kept Mikalah's, but she was my first.
Nope, into the trash they went. And thankfully Mike took the trash to the alley. Otherwise....
