The cat did it.

Today I purposely destroyed one of the few things that brings my son comfort and happiness. ...and then I blamed it on the cat.

I cut off the top of his pacifier.

Scotty I am so very sorry. I love you very much but you are three now and the pacifier needs to go. As you solemnly pointed out today your pacifier "is not working" anymore and I have to confess that it is my fault. When you looked at me with your big, sad brown eyes I felt like the single worst person in the world. I know you assumed that I, as your mommy, could fix the pacifier and make you feel better... but I can't. I'm sorry Scotty. : (

So Scotty, I'm sorry I broke your pacifier and I'm sorry I lied to you about it. The cat is innocent.

There is a new toy car for you on your train table... and some more yummy chocolate milk in the fridge... and tomorrow we will go to McDonalds for a cheeseburger... and a cookie.

Hi Tara,
Is three years old the "normal" age to stop with pacifier in US? In Sweden they just say you have to stop before you got the permanent teeth, so I think most people try to have their children stop at around four years old.
My children didn't even got pacifiers, I just didn't bought any for them. Am I also a bad mummy? :-)
I think you are a great mum!!!
Hope you have a nice weekend!

PS Maybe he need the pacifier... first he got a little sister who gets lots of attention, then you shouldn't have diapers and then you shouldn't even have pacifier, but the new baby could have it. Life is hard, :-) !
