yes, I'm the Mom who swore up and down that she would never give her kids a pacifier. Here I am, with a son who will be turning 3 in September and is still horribly addicted to his binky. It's like a bad habit- he's only allowed to have it at night and during naps. I'm not about to let him have it in public- because then I would have to face the judgment of other Moms and Grandparents alike, right? Can't we just keep it our dirty little secret? Is there something so wrong about having a pacifier when you're twelve?
In the next couple months we have decided to send Nash to binky rehab. There will be night sweats, terrors, screaming, fits and most likely many, many tears. It must be done...
We can tie it to a balloon and send it away, we can trade him for a really cool toy, we can cut the tips off so they lose their "suck" appeal, hide them, burn them, trash them. No matter how you chalk it up, it won't be pretty.
wish us luck.... and if you have suggestions, send them.
