Binkey Withdrawal



For those of you who caught my earlier post today, this is something I like to call relapse. well, not exactly, because I didn't give in. Oh I wanted to. So bad. She hasn't given me any fits and she has been off the binkey for 2 1/2 days. But today for her nap, she was oh so sad. She wasn't even throwing her usual screaming fits, it was more like, "I am so sad that my little friend is gone." But don't worry I was strong, I didn't succumb to the her ways. Even though, my mother was saying 'Jennie, just give it back." What? what kind of support is that from a mother?
She didn't take a nap though, which really bites, because I don't know if I really want to trade naps for a binkey.

Oh, that is so sad! I will make sure Audrey's binkis stay out of site for awhile. After all she's in detox, so don't want to temp her!

How about "sight" instead of "site" - it's been a LONG day - I'm really not that big of an idiot (well, most of the time!).

Nice going for standing firm. When we have kids someday they will neither cry nor scream when their binky is taken away. They will simply say, "I understand mother/father, I'm too old for this device."

Holy crap can't believe you didn't give in I am so proud of you. It is so much easier when they don't need a binky I hated having to roam the house to find one, or if I forgot one and Kooper just would not sleep. Give her a week she will be good. I do love that she potty trains easier than taking away a binky. Miss you!!!!

Haha! Brooklyn's such a big girl! I don't think I'll be able to get rid of Luke's binkies for a very loooong time. But your story cracked me up! Good for you for being so strong! I can totally see your mom telling you to just give it back to her! Hahaha! Good for you Jennie! :)
