Next I'll Be Talking About Poop and Boobs

We can file this under things that I never knew I had to know until I became a parent:

Not all pacifiers are created equal.

We'd purchased a couple, recieved one from the hospital and one as a gift. The gifted one came from my dad, along with a Packers-themed outfit. Keep in mind that I may be from Wisconsin, but I am NOT a Packer fan. I'm not a fan of professional sports in general. So, this Packers outfit and pacifier are a bit rediculous to me. But it was a gift and it's cute. And we ARE from Wisconsin, living in Texas.

So, we finally try giving Truman a pacifier sometime last week or the week before. Up until that point, he'd really not shown much interest in them.

I'm sure you'll see where this is going. The kid REFUSES to take any of the 'normal' pacifiers we'd give him. The only one he likes is the damn Packers pacifier. So, whenever we're out in public, he's proclaiming his support for a team that neither me nor my husband could give two rips about.


I finally got to Target this week to try and track down similarly styled pacifiers with a less obnoxious design. I think we my have a winner. MAYBE.

Hi Catrina!! Do you prefer to be called Cat now?? Just wondering...

I think that is funny that your dad sent you a Packers outfit and pacifer...

I am the same way about the Packers. I am from the state but I am not a fan of professional football. I know when we have kids however that my husband's side of the family will be showering us with gifts with the Packer emblem (or whatever its called) on it...

So, this blog makes total sense to me.

This is a funny blog though!!

You should come back and visit with whatever Texas team is out there and have that pacifier and outfit in his mouth and watch people's jaws drop!! LOL! That would be a good silly prank...They might actually kill you. You know Packer backers!!

My family side is somewhat into the Chicago Bears...But I doubt I will get any gifts (if and when we have kids) with the Bears on it...

I am glad that I am not the only non Packer fan in Wisconsin...

HUGS to you...I am so happy for you guys!! I hope you find a pacifer!!
