Just "Roll" With It....

Who knew that a child could be so picky with a pacifier. I mean... naturally a gator pacifier is something to get excited about... but really, Pierce? That's really the ONLY pacy that will work for ya?!

I tried all the popular brands when he was little, but he just didn't care for them. Then, alas, I pulled out a gator pacy we received as a gift... and voila! Pierce was hooked! We had two... then I lost one on vacation. Uh oh... it's a very nerve racking thing to only have one pacifier that will work. Well, amazingly we kept up with it very carefully for the first 10 months of dear Pierce's life, until, inevitably our lucky streak ended 3 days ago. It is gone. Not out and about, mind you... but here in this house! We put him to bed with it, and the next day it was gone. We tore his room apart looking for it... but to no avail. With any normal pacifier... this problem could be easily resolved by running to any local store and picking up a new pack (we surely went through countless packs with Allie...). But no, these can only be found at the sports store at the mall. So, after a very sleepless night, I headed to the mall only to find that IT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED! I drove across town to the only other store in the area to find even worse news... there was ONE left... but not a gator one. One with a big fat Alabama "A" on it. GROSS. Well, sometimes, you just have to "roll with it", I suppose. After all, a restful night is worth the trade off for this tacky and horrible pacifier, I guess.

On a better note... I found 2 .... assumably the last two in the world (or at least on the internet, any way) on ebay. For a mere $12.94, they'll hopefully be delivered to our house sometime between July 23-25. We will once again be at peace with the world... and will NOT be supporting the crimson tide.
