Several months ago the Paci Fairy made a visit to our house. She took all of Addison's pacifiers with her and left her a pretty Princess bike. And for awhile, the fear of the Paci Fairy seeing her with a paci in her mouth and taking back her sweet ride was enough to keep her from stealing Samantha's pacis.
It's now the middle of winter and we have approximately 8 inches of snow on our sidewalk. Riding her bike is not really on her list of things to do this week. So even though it's strictly forbidden, we find Addi with a paci a few times a week. She always hides somewhere -- behind the couch, under a bed, in the closet -- but she still has it and gets in trouble.
A few nights ago, I headed to bed and checked in on Addi. She was sound asleep and looked like a peaceful angel. Make that, a peaceful devil.
After snapping a picture I pulled the white paci from her mouth and headed to bed. And the next morning I woke up and was not surprised to find Addi lying next to me. I was, however, surprised to find an ORANGE paci in her mouth. Apparently she's past the "hiding" stage of her paci addiction.
After she woke up I looked her square in the eye and said, "Addi, Mommy knows you did something wrong. Do you have something you want to tell me?"
She got a really scared look on her face and said, "Um, I peed my pants."
Not the confession I was looking for. It was, however, very good information to have considering she was sleeping in my spot.
