Dante will be 4 in July and still uses a pacifier to go to sleep. He calls it a "woo-woo" because he also has a special pillow that he totes around called his "boo-boo". So the Team is called "boo-boo-woo-woo".
Lately (and I think it is a bit of regression due to the pregnancy) he has been "boo-boo-woo-woo"'ing anytime that we are not outside or out of the house at the park or doing errands. We come home, and boom, in it goes into his mouth. I've been a little lax in telling him that "woo-woo" is just for bedtime, so it has become a habit now that as soon as we walk in the door, the "boo-boo-woo-woo" come out and I've got a baby on my couch.
Well, this morning and from now on, "woo-woo" will now be hiding during the day. He has "boo-boo", the pillow but the "woo-woo" is going to be JUST FOR BEDTIME! He actually looks cute with just the "boo-boo". Reminds me of Linus from the Peanuts comics.
Hopefully, the hidden "woo-woo" will be forgotten in a few weeks or so and he won't look for it at bedtime. The "boo-boo", on the other hand, doesn't bother me at all since it once belonged to me and was known as my "poo-doo-doo" and I relinquished using it at 32 years old when Dante was born. (but sometimes when D isn't looking, I'll snuggle with it for a few minutes too).
