Six Word Saturday!

It's that time again...Six Word Saturday! To find out more about 6WS and to participate, check out Call Me Cate's fun blog by clicking the button below.



My words:

Silly Zoodle! Binkies are for babies!

Remember that old advertising slogan, "Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids!" Well, two days ago I got tired of seeing my 2-year-old looking like a big boy below the waist (with underwear on) and like a baby above the neck (with a binky in his mouth for so much of the day.) So his binkies are now for bedtime and naptime only.

And you know what? He's doing fine! He asks for a binky sometimes, but Friday was better than Thursday. The lack of binkies hasn't caused any major meltdowns, which has surprised me; I thought he was so attached to them! Maybe I was more attached to that "quick fix" than he was!

I'm not sure when we'll take it away altogether. Since his sleep is not the best right now, binky-free sleep isn't something I'm ready to push yet.

that's a hard time! My best friend's little girl was so attached to her binky, that now she has a thumb sucking problem at age 8. Good luck...glad he's doing fine and happy 6WS!!

My daughter started seriously talking on her first birthday. Within a couple of days the pacifier was forgotten. She evidently had a lot to say and I think it just got in the way! :)

I had to run out and buy a binkie in the middle of the night once when my youngest was a baby and we couldn't find her binkie anywhere.
Kids do get so attached to them. (:>)

But they grow up so fast and leave them and so many things behind.
Enjoy each stage.
