Good Morning All. Hope you are having a great day so far. Mine isn't so good.... just when we thought we were getting better, we're all sick again! It must be a stomach bug because food poisoning doesn't last that long! Poor babies are so miserable. Aiden just wants to cuddle and everything makes him cry. Emma isn't as bad though. She is staying pretty quiet and watching her "shows". Good girl she is.

When both of my kids were born, I was the first one to put a suckie, pacifier, binkie, or whatever you call it, in their little mouths. It stopped the crying and helped them sleep. BIG MISTAKE!!! Emma will be 3 years old in May and she still uses her suckie. She is definately too big for one now because she keeps biting holes in them and then when she bites a hole in hers, she moves onto Aiden's. I have spent about $25 in the past month on suckies. Finally last night I said to the Hubby that the madness had to stop! Very dramatic I know LOL. I told Emma that the next time she bit her suckie I was taking it from her. She laughed because i've made this threat before and never followed through. Well as I was putting her to bed, she bit the suckie! I took it out of her mouth and tried to explain to a screaming almost 3 year old that she was gooing to have to go to sleep without it. She cried herself asleep. Gosh did I ever feel like the horrible Mother. But the good news is, SHE SLEPT ALL NIGHT WITHOUT HER SUCKIE!!!!!! The first time since she was born that she didn't sleep with it. I was so proud and told her so this morning. She is still sick so I let her have it when she asked for it this morning but she's just playing with it mostly. Every now and then she puts it in her mouth for a suck and then she spits it out again. When she goes down for her nap today, no suckie either! I'll keep you posted as to OPERATION SUCKIE REMOVAL! LOL.

Ahhh, Operation Suckie Removal!! We did that just before my son's second birthday, we had been camping and he left it in the camper, so we told him he lost it camping. He cried about it every night for about 10 minutes for three or four days and then didn't ever ask about it again. My daughter doesn't seem to be to attached to it yet, and is only 5 months, so I may be able to ditch it by the time she's a year. My sister got creative and started painting the thumb sucking disgusting stuff on her daughters soother, and they both agreed that the suckie went yucky and she threw it away herself!! So good luck, it's something that all mothers seem to go through at some point or other!
