Don't take no wooden nickels

Actually, that should read "Don't make no wooden nipples."

Yes, according to our ever-helpful parenting class, pacifiers are okay, as long as they aren't homemade. So Daniel is going to have to halt the whittling project he has been working on for the past few months.

I just finished reading a book by this title. I must admit that I'd never heard that expression prior to last week. I've certainly never heard your version!

oh, and also, it is apparently not appropriate to smoke while you are feeding the baby. ashes might burn him and the second-hand smoke will aggravate his tiny lungs.

this is really not a Parenting for Rednecks class, i promise!

These are all good things to know! (Sarcasm) You would be surprised how many people do not know these things.

You also shouldn't drink a 6-pack of Lonestar before nursing.

So what was Daniel's model for the wooden nipples?

Wow...that just sounds painfully wrong! :)

I'm surprised that they are "enlightening" you on these typical parenting mistakes?!?

Did they give you any helpful or useful information?? :)

Today at gym class, a baby had a homemade pacifier. It was a bottle nipple with some kind of created plug on the end that looked like duct tape. Heath was SHOCKED. I was just EEWWWWWed.

don't they know that pacifiers are okay, just not the homemade ones?

they must not have attended the same caliber of parenting class that i did. were they smoking also?
