This is September 27th another day in the adventure in babysitting. Are pacifiers a good thing for babies? I don't know if they existed when I was little. Maybe that's why I have so many problems. We all need comfort and if we can find comfort in something that doesn't harm us its a good thing. Plus a pacifier can save a parent a lot of grief. What is your pacifier? I think we all have one or more. What will Kate use in life to comfort her? Hopefully not drugs or alcohol. Hugs are a good substitute. I'm going to try to get her hooked on hugs. She'll get plenty from me. Right now she doesn't like the pacifier so much. She prefers her fingers. They are always close at hand. Today the hugs are on me.
