Name that ... thing!
UPDATED... I call it a soother, sooss for short. Z - dummy Si - diddy Candace - bink (short for 'binky', of course!), while to her son it was a 'bikki-pooh'. Kristen, MamacitaTina - paci Kimmyk - Mammy LadyM's Q - pup Jacqueline - nuk What about you? Are there still more, different names for that thing? What do YOU call it? What do you call it, I asked! Boy, did you tell me. Ask and you shall receive... Leah calls it a peepka, and wonders if this is adulterated Russian. Anyone likely to know?? Sunshine Scribe's is akin to Z, though for her it's a dummer. For June's mother, it's a fooler, foo-foo for short. Avalon, like Candace, uses binky. (Well, not personally. Just the word.) Ms Sisyphus's obviously Canadian daughter called hers a susie, while her nephew leans to the American and calls it a passy. (Which is how I've assume 'paci' is pronounced.) Mommymatic's little boy calls it a bah-jee-bye. (Care to explain why, MM?) And I love, love, love her uncle's explanation that the Icelandic word for it is "snoolth". Don't you just LOVE that word? Crayonz adds her support to binky and paci. M called it a boppy. (Which has a friendly, happy feel that the everyday 'pas' totally lacks, don't you think??) Sizzknits knows it as a pappi, anonymous offers bippy and tiddly, and Julia? Julia, she made me laugh out loud when she admitted that when her family doesn't call it a binky, it's an "oh-for-the-love-of-god-keep-the-damned-thing-in-your-mouth-and-go-to-sleep!" ~~~~~~~~~~~~ © 2006, Mary P
