Dear Binky Thief

I truly appreciate you trying to break my daughter of her attachment to her beloved binky.

But now is not the time.

Roo needs her binky like I need soda to survive. Without her treasured binky, her whole pretty face falls and ear-shattering screams pierce the air and my heart.

Your constant theft in my household results in a panicked Mommy and Daddy tearing apart every room in the house. We search frantically, each getting more and more nervous as moments pass and our daughter continues to cry.

When we find one we jump up shouting victory before we rush back to our bellowing girl and pop it in her mouth. Of course, the cries instantly stop and we both collapse in utter exhaustion.

Now I know you get a kick out of seeing two frazzled parents hunt for a binky like it's hidden treasure. But we are not amused. We do not enjoy this daily activity. We do not like playing your games.

We desperately ask that you cease this nonsense. . If you return all of the binkys you've stolen, we'll call it even.

If you return them we promise to call off the hit man we've hired to hunt you down.

Thank you kindly,

The Mommy and Daddy of a Miserable, Binky-Less Toddler

I think they should come with warnings on the packaging like this : Warning - I will get lost at some point and your whole world.will.suck.
Haha! I'm so glad that Babe only takes a blinky when he's teething :) Better than my nipple to chew on!

Haha..I know the scenario all too well..look under the crib, in the bathroom, couch cushions, toy chest, bookshelves, diaper bag (10 times), laundry basket...and so on! I think they make them so they disintegrate after a month, forcing you have to buy more. I must have bought over 300 "bobos" in the last 2 years!

This sort of makes me want to paint what a binky thief would look like.

(Hi I'm new... Love that profile picture).

Our house ghost(s) takes ours. She'll hide them then gently place them in the most bizarre places where only I will find them(far out of reach for the children). I wonder if, one day, I'll find a huge stash of them somewhere.

I think there's a black hole in each house, and that's where pacifiers and socks got into and never come back.
