Addiction is a nasty beast. For over a year now, we have been planning Gabby’s quit. We have to wait until the baby is born. We have to wait until she isn’t jealous of the baby. We have to wait until she is sleeping through the night. We have to wait until she gets used to sleeping with the toddler rail. And on and on and on…
I don’t want to put it off anymore.
I also don’t want bedtime to be the worst part of my day.
But the binkies have GOT to go. She is at the point now where she bargains and negotiates for “one more sip” or “one more bite” in the mornings. She asks to go to nap just so she can have some alone time in her room with her binky. It’s just no good.
So… now that she is going to bed happily and loves her sister, we are going to stuff a Build-A-Bear with a binky and some stuffing and head off into the sunset binky-free.
Update: She has been 3 days binky-free!
