Where's the Paci?

Please tell me that I'm not the only one with this problem.
I know for a fact that I have 6 pacifiers.
But the moment that I actually need one for Tessa, they all seem to disappear.
It's like there is this invisible pacifier vortex somewhere in my home
that sucks them all away at the exact moment I begin to search for one.
And it's always a moment where, if I don't have a paci in her mouth in 10 seconds, it's gonna get ugly.
The only time Tessa really needs a pacifier is when she is sleeping.
She's perfectly fine throughout the day without one.
But when it comes to making the "sleeping baby transfer to the crib" move,
if there is not a paci ready and waiting for her if she begins to wake up,
naptime (or I should say attempted naptime) is over. 
Because if she wakes up to find that I'm trying to put her in her crib, one of two things will happen...
1. Sad/Angry baby face appears, followed by crying until I reach down to pick her up and rock her.
2. Shocked baby face appears, followed by the biggest toothless grin I have ever seen,
as if she is saying: "Hello! I'm so happy to see you. Pick me up please."
(and of course I can't resist that face)
Either way there will be no nap for another 4 hours.

Anyone else have the "pacifier vortex" in their homes?

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
I'm off to start preparing dinner.
It might be 11am, but were having friends over for dinner,
and with baby girl, I need to use every spare second to get things done.
My To-Do list before our friends arrive...
1. Cook dinner: Brisket, Mashed Potatoes, and Roasted Broccoli.
2. Vacuum the house (one day of not sweeping and the dog hair is out of control).
3. Bake something sweet for dessert. I'm thinking of making Cranberry Bliss Bars.

Happy Friday!

Yes! I have the same issue with the pacifiers! Luckily, we just took baby boys away a month ago and he doesn't care any longer so no more freak outs as to where the silly thing went! :)

life as Mrs. said...

haha this is exactly us! I mean we don't have binky vortex cuz i always have hers clipped to her but i could totally picture us when you were talking about the crib transfer. McKenzie also only really needs her binky when she's getting tired..
