How to pass yourself off as an experienced parent

Someone, might have been one of my sibling or their spouse, told me this a long time ago:

With y0ur first child, if the pacifier drops to the ground, you pick it up, rinse it off, and sterilise it with boiling water, before you pop it back in the child’s mouth.

With the second kid, you rinse it off, inspect it for any obvious foreign matter stuck to it then pop it back in the kid’s mouth.

With the third kid, you will clean the pacifier with a tissue, before popping it back in the kid’s mouth.

With the fourth kid, you will wipe the pacifier on you jeans or T-shirt, and give it back to the kid.

With the fifth kid, you will just take it straight from the ground and give it to your kid… before you realise that you have picked up a stone…. if your kid is lucky.

If you see us parenting Z, you would probably think that Z is our 3rd or 4th kid.

We are THAT experienced. 🙂
