|last picture of him with a binkie|
A couple weeks ago, my mom came out to visit. She slept in Piglet’s room and we made up a bed on the floor for him to sleep on. Funny joke, I know, because within 5 minutes, he was in our bed. He slept with us for the week, which is fine. We’ve co-slept before so it wasn’t that new.
But something that was new happened. You may remember, I was talking about kicking the binkie habit but we never did. In fact, with the stress of Blueberry joining the family and the move to Hawaii, he kept it. And he kept on using it.
He’s 3.5 and was still using it. That is until he lost the binkie in our bed somewhere during our week of co-sleeping and we never found it again. Well, Hubs found it a couple days ago behind our bed between the wall. I guess he stuffed it there by accident. He likes to stuff things between the mall and the mattress all the time. The only thing is, we don’t have a cool twin bed that holds his treasures.
The best part was, he only asked for his ONE time. He said “where’s my binkie?” and I told him that I didn’t know and he accepted the answer.
So yay! We finally kicked the habit! Of course, based on how easy it was, we probably could have done it sooner but oh well. At least he wasn’t heading into kindergarten with the thing (like his daddy).
