Baby Girl is starting daycare this week (insert giant sad face here). So I whipped up a final project to keep track of her pacifier at daycare. This was the first baby of my three children that I actually took 12 weeks of maternity leave, although I did work intermittently from home (thanks COVID), and I am sure going to miss her next week.
With my other two, I was so looking forward to being back in the office. But now that my office is my kitchen table for the foreseeable future, it is bittersweet to be sending her off to daycare. However, we are trading her for her oldest brother who will now be at home doing virtual school in the 3rd grade. By no means am I cut out to be a stay at home mom. We confirmed that earlier this year during safer-at-home. One kid at a time at home is all I can sane-ly handle, especially once I'm back working full-time remotely.
Especially now, with all the cleaning procedures and safe guards at daycare it's important to keep baby items secure and clean. I had envisioned making a friendship bracelet style pacifier leash, but that turned into a twisted failed mess. Thankfully from that was born the idea to crochet this bobble twist pacifier leash.
