Debinkification Day

Today is officially Debinkification (I made up this word) Day. My Baby Girl is 2 1/2 today, I have been telling her for 2 months that Aug. 25th we are throwing away the binkies. She just woke up (9am) and I just informed her that she can lay on the couch and watch a couple shows and when she is good and awake (it takes her an hour or so to "wake" up) we are going to put binkies in the trash. I think today, tomorrow, the next day, well basically the rest of the week is going to be not so great for me or her, but it has to be done!!!! I hate that I have to take something away from her that she LOVES so so much, but sometimes mommies have to do such things. Hopefully we can find something to "replace" them, I say them because she sucks on one and rubs the other on her nose. Kinda her security. Anyway, wish me luck!

Good luck! I remember taking Caden's was rough the first night, he cried for about 20 minutes, the next night maybe 10 or so, then he forgot about it! Carter is about to lose his too, but since he isn't 2 yet, I am going to wait just a little longer. I have confined his to the bed though now, that seems to help!
