Okay so I am sitting at McDonalds working since I couldn’t stand not having Internet at home anymore and I saw two sisters come into McDonalds to use the bathroom. One girl was maybe 3, the other was at least 6 or 7. My boys are 4 and 5 and I could not imagine them still using a pacifier! I cut them both off by their 2nd birthday, but I can understand up to 3 with a pacifier. Clearly though a 7 year old should not use a pacifier! What is wrong with their mother!? Oh and I should add that the girls came in by themselves to use the bathroom while the mother double parked in the Drive-Thru lane (yes people honked and maneveured around her) waiting outside for them.
Here is my little guy when he was 2, with 2 pacifiers…I didn’t want to take a picture of someone else’s child so I don’t have a picture of the 7 year old girl with her pacifier.
So I ask, what age do you think it becomes inappropriate (or just strange) for a child to use a pacifier?
