the B.I.N.K.Y

The Binky.

C started using one almost as soon as he was born.

I used to look down on parents that used binkys...idk they didn't seem hard core or something.

But a friend of mine introduced me to 'mams' and it changed my life that day.  C would instantly calm down the minute he had one.  


fast forward to this month:

Since coming home from Europe, C has been obsessed with his binky.  He ALWAYS knows where it is, he ALWAYS has to have it, and he refuses to hand it over.

Then one day (as in Monday) he just stopped.  He handed me the binky, played all afternoon, and went to bed that night without it.  He asked Mr. H once before falling asleep, but then fell asleep before he realized he didn't have it.  

That is the first time in probably 21 months that he has EVER slept without his binky.  

We decided to see what happened the next morning.  He was fine!  He was so happy, talkative and he played so well outside.  For his nap, he got a little sad, but he cried for 5 minutes and then fell asleep.  

Today he hasn't asked for it once.  

This is what we call a modern day miracle. 


so proud of our big boy!
