Bring on the tears...


Why? It's because last night we decided to get rid of the binkie. Yep. All Gone.

He asked for it a couple of times before bed, but understood what I meant when I said, "Nope, all gone!" This morning he had a hard time when he first woke up and couldn't find it, but he got over that after about a minute.

So far it hasn't been too bad. He usually only asks for it when he's sleepy, so we'll see how it goes from here!

Rori did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised at how well she handled it.

I tried to be sensitive when she wanted it (when she was sad, hurt, or tired) and I always asked if she wanted a hug since she couldn't have a binkie. Every single time, she said yes so I gave her one, and then she was fine.

The binkie was mostly a comforter, so offering extra loves and comfort really helped her to deal with it being gone.
