Sorely Missed

Pacifier.

Binkie.

Plug.

Comforter.

Security.

Friend.

All words that describe the one true love of an 18 month old.


However, some relationships must come to an end. Well...this type does anyhow.

Today was the first day of no pacifiers.

This morning, after Sariah woke up, I cut the tips of both of her pacifiers.

She found them, and discovered they were broken.

Together, we threw them away.

Then comes naptime. Yikes.

What usually takes 30 seconds, took almost 45 minutes - falling asleep.

Crying. Sobbing. Screaming. Banging on the wall.

Silence.

She did it...she fell asleep. Or so I thought.

When I went in to check on her, this is what I found.


She protested by taking her clothes off.

She eventually did fall asleep, but took only half of her normal nap.

Looks like we'll do it all over again tonight.

Wish me luck...strength...patience...we'll do this together!

You'll definitely need patience. I was very lucky that Alissa stopped taking her pacifier after the first 4 months and never used it once again. But good luck!
