We had a brilliant idea to help wean Kate from pacifiers. We picked up a cute egg timer with the idea that we could set the timer when she had her nana and over time we’d slowly reduce the time on the timer. Unfortunately, it’s worked a bit too well… Poor Kate is TERRIFIED of the owl. As soon as we set the owl timer she panics and insists we take her nana back. Now when she’s upset she says, “owl, scary” instead of asking for a pacifier. So when she has an irrational fear of raptors later in life, we’ll know where it comes from.
