You may be wondering what a Dabba-deux is. Believe me, we wondered, too. But, believe it or not, this is what Hutch called his pacifer. Backstory- for a while we thought he may be part Cajun because everything had a name like this. For example, he called water, "Mam-o." Anyways, would you believe that Mickey Mouse came to our house the other day while Hutch was at school and took all those dabba-deux's away? Yep. He even left a letter explaining to Hutch explaining that he is a big boy now and that there were lots of baby boys that need his dabba-deux's. And to show his appreciation for Hutch being so unknowingly generous, he left himself! And, wait for it.....wait for it....Goofy! Hutch was so excited! We just can't believe we missed him. I'm still trying to figure out how he got into our house.
What's even greater is the fact that Hutch hardly even mentions those dabba-deux's anymore. If you forget about the day he told me that Mickey Mouse was going to bring all of his dabba-deux's back to him, then he hasn't even really thought about them. Thank goodness for Mickey and Goofy, as I think they tend to take his mind off it alot. Of course, he only used those dabba-deux's at night, so having his new friends to cuddle with has sure made it easier.
Kinda sad as a parent, really. I think Hutch would have been totally fine with Mickey and friends visiting our house a few months ago, but Jeremy & I were just not quite ready for that. It makes me a bit sad to think we won't hear "dabba-deux" on a daily basis anymore. Sniff. Sniff. Just a sign that our little fella is growing up.
Can you make them quit growing for just a little bit?
