Pacified

5 May

tumblr_n53q9q8drQ1s67vq4o5_r1_1280Martin, Iker & Sara were out for a little springtime family walk.  How cute are they?

In the grand tradition of ‘baller papis sharing their offspring’s pacifiers (see Stevie & Nando – love how Nando has his own aside from Nora’s), Iker got down to it. He looks so chuffed by fatherhood, doesn’t he?


BTW, what do they call pacifiers where you’re from? In England, they’re called dummies. In the US, pacifiers or binkys. I’m curious to know how other places refer to them. (Photos via RealMadridFamily)

    The swedish word is “napp” (in the northern parts of Sweden people also say “tutte”, which can be a bit confusing for some, as “tutte” also means boob in Swedish…)

    A question though, I thought “binky” was a brand name for pacifiers?

      Well boob/pacifier having the same name kinda makes sense as the pacifier is the stand in for a boob. XD

      I guess that binky is a brand name for pacifiers, but I don’t think that it always was. I think the term “binky” came along and then Playtex scooped it up as a brand name, but I could be wrong about that.
