A random mom at the kiddie gym sees that Nora is using a pacifier in the stroller.
Random Mom: “I just started weaning my kid off his pacifier. It’s been brutal.”
Me: “Yes– we’ve been weaning her off too! It’s so hard. She whines the entire time she’s in the stroller, but I try to ignore it. Now I only give her the pacifier if there’s a REALLY good reason to.”
Random Mom: “So what’s today’s reason?”
Me: “I just can’t.”
