Pacifiers and Myspace

So, you are looking at that title and going… now how is she going to tie these two seemingly unrelated things together???
A: I’m not
Just two topics I’m going to share my opinion of with you conveniently in this one little post.

First, pacifiers… I don’t know if I just don’t get it or I’m being one of those judgemental moms who thinks she’s (OK, knows) she’s doing it right. But man when I see pictures of babies with those things I totally just want to slap em right outta their mouths! Like…. ahhhhh! You are almost a year old…. not a newborn!
So here is my problem… firstly I’ve never met a breastfed baby who will take one.. P took one when she was just born… used it only a couple of times. Isabelle wouldn’t even touch it… and when she was about six months old I was so exhausted I fished one out of a box of stuff of Penny’s– praying to the universe she would take it so I could sleep… she did not. Maybe I’m bitter but what the hell do kids need these in their mouths for all the time. Isn’t it frowned upon? And taking pictures with it??? WHAT!
NO,NO,NO.I get the soothing / calming purpose but isn’t that like the “fourth trimester” wouldn’t that end at three months old?
Alright said my piece.
I will say this though… I don’t really know what it’s like to have a child dependent on one for comfort. I do know what weaning is like and if it’s anything like that it isn’t fun, but can’t you see yourself going down this path before it gets to that point? I don’t know.

Now on to my second bit…
I have been going on Myspace looking at old pictures. I’ve also been looking at my old comments and how nice that whole community is in retrospect. Facebook seems so whiny to me, OH LIFE SUCKS BLAH BLAH BLAH. Myspace was just commenting on people’s pages telling them nice things like “hey I miss you” or “Happy Birthday”
So, I’m going to list here (who doesn’t love a list) all of my favorite comments I’ve ever received on Myspace (some of the best are actually from my brother) He’s probably the missing ingredient on facebook anyway – he’s never had one.
