Though I doubt it's entirely parental influence since out of the four of us two are dependent on the electronic pacifier and two aren't. I actually had a pacifier-substitute theory about this very briefly, but none of us had one of those as an infant; Mom: "You all sucked your thumbs because your father and I wouldn't have to get up a hundred times a night to pick THOSE up off the floor and give them back to you."

Important part of all this being that I made her laugh ... always a fun thing to do for anybody. She still wants a "Thank you for being a mean mother" card though (she considers the lack of these a serious oversight in the greeting card industry). ;-p
