A kindly Grandpa returning a lost pacifier? Maybe. Or is he taking it away? That’s where my mind went.

Can you guess how many names there are for a pacifier? Check out this link for an answer.

Losing Stuff
Life ain’t easy, kid. First they take your binky, then your bottle. Just wait until they come for your security blanket. (122)

Sharks Are Rough
This is just a warning. Miss another payment and you’ll never see your treasured pacifier again. (99)

Life is Tough
Think you have it bad? Some kids have to share their binky. (60)

    That list of names for a pacifier was amazing. My favorite was “Voldemart.” That poor baby…people are being pretty mean to her/him! I liked the second one the most…just the idea of an infant missing a payment…lol!

    Good ones, GMa. :) Sorry, but I also called my little twirp “Kid” like you did. No copying, I promise! That is cruel to make a kid share his blinky. LOL
