It's a banner day for us!

I would like to report that for almost a week and a half, we have been BINKY free!
Oh that's right.


I took it from him the night before Easter.




Why you ask?
Well he asked to have it while watching his movie in his pj's right before bed.
I said ok.
I glance at him.
There it is, in his mouth, sucking away.


A few minutes later, I look at him & it's gone.
No biggie.
Probably just fell in his lap.
No,no.
Glance back, he yawns.
There is the entire green binky in his mouth & his lips are covering it.


I had him hand me the binky & told him he wasn't getting back.
He asked me for it at bedtime but I was steadfast & said no.


He didn't cry for it.
He did the next morning for about 20 mins but I held out & didn't give it.
He asked for it at night but for the past 3 nights he has not asked.


Woo hoo!


So at 3 and a half years old, we are finally binky free.


Yay!
