We have a very particular boy. He likes what he likes and will give you the stink eye and pitch a fit if you try to give him anything else. We are are having a situation with sippy cups and pacifiers. Throughout Jax's life, we have probably bought about 25 pacifiers, yet we can only find 3. To make matters worse, the kind that Jax's likes are discontinued. And when I say the kind that Jax likes, I really mean the only kind he will allow within a 5 foot perimeter of his mouth. I have looked everywhere for these stupid things and I've come to find that they have changed the design. There is only a slight difference in color and shape of holes on the sides but Jax is no dummy. He knows if I try to give him one of the updated versions and he will through it across the room and yell at me if I even offer it. Such a predicament. Do we buy the last of his kind that are online or do we just decide this is the end of pacifiers once we lose these? I think we are leaning more towards the latter but we got a preview of what no more pacifiers looks like and it ain't pretty.
Same thing with the sippy cups. Jax likes a certain kind and they no longer sell it. I tried buying him some with Dora and Elmo and Cars on it but he is smarter than I give him credit for. Either the top is too hard or too soft or too big for his little mouth and he throws it on the floor. He will go without drinking just so he doesn't have to drink out of those cups. Such a particular little boy. Such a little butthead! :-) Gotta make it harder for us. I really don't know what to do about this issue. I guess he is gonna have to switch to big boy cups sooner than later.
I still wonder where all those pacifiers have gone. I guess we will find them when we move in 20 years. I'm certain the house has eaten them.
