I remember when I was so happy that Mr. T would take his paci, binky, or "Beday" as he now calls it. It was our moment of silence. Yes...I fully admit...it was a plug. But it definitely helped him soothe which was our savior. I can't complain having a little one sleep through the night at 8 weeks. But look at him...he was just so tiny and small then!!
But not too long ago, we were out to dinner with friends and we all saw what looked to be a six year old sitting at the table with a Binky in his mouth. I mean, the kid could cut his own steak, but still needed that pacifier. I know I know...all parents are different, but for me...no thank you.
And so, it is operation Bye Bye Binkie. Any thoughts on a plan?? So far I have the following:
Plan A: Cut the Binky out Cold Turkey over the holidays while we are home more and there's tons of excitement & new toys.
Plan B: Wait until Mr. T's 2nd Birthday (March 2011). Make a big deal of it, either a little goodbye moment or explain about the Binky Fairy.
Plan C: Take it tonight...just because.
Plan D: Let Mr. T have it for as long and as many years as he wants. Maybe his first girlfriend will dig it.
What has worked for everyone else? Any brilliant ideas??
