Binky Free is the Way to Be!
We hit a major milestone with Mr. Boy this week. We have gone to bed every night since Friday without a binky!!! I wasn't sure it would ever happen & was scared to death how it was going to go but we did it & it was so much easier than I thought it would be!
Last Friday he & Maddi (daycare friend) were being royal pains in the booty. They refused to do anything I asked or told them to do. Flat out saying "No!". It wasn't a good day. I finally had it around nap time & said, "Get to bed!" So I sent them both to naps without juice or binkies. Cael, to my surprise, went to sleep! So that night he asked for his binky. I said, "But I thought you were going to go to sleep like a big boy without a binky." And he looked at me and said, "Okay mommy. No binky." He has asked for it only once each night since then and I just tell him he's a big boy. Oh my goodness!!! Nap time isn't going as well. He goes down without a bink but then he doesn't sleep....at all. He hasn't taken a nap since Friday! Oh my - I'm not ready to nix the naptime yet! He is growing up so fast. :( Not sure if mommy is ready for it! Especially if he's going to be my only child. Wow. Bittersweet.
