We have always called Maggie's pacifier her bink. And as of today, the bink is gone.
I did it. I really did.
For the last week, I have been contemplating getting rid of it (we really only do it at nap and bedtime, but still, I'm ready to be done with it). I had planned to do it yesterday, but just chickened out. Then, headlessly perhaps, this moring, I just decided I needed to follow through with my plan. I snatched up all binks and sat Maggie down.
"Binks are for babies and you are a big girl!" I began, as I put ALL the binks in a ziplock blog. "Big girls have dolls!" And I proceeded to have her unwrap a new doll. She was thrilled.
We said, "Bye, bye bink." And that was that.
At least I hope so. She hasn't asked about it all day long. She ended up napping in the car today, a total rarity for us, so I'm a bit unsure how our night will go. Bedtime is in about an hour, so we shall see!
