as background...we have been talking about how binkies get old and get holes in them for weeks in preparation for me snipping the tip of her binky off. and she only has it when she sleeps. so then she'll bring it up periodically..."mom remember how binkies get old and get holes..." and then we'll have the conversation again. so she did that with kendall the night i was at scouts and took the binky out of her mouth and said, "look i don't have a binky anymore!" and kendall said, "do you want to get rid of it?" and she said, "YES!" so he put it on her dresser but then ethan came in and said, "avery do you want to throw your binky in the trash right now???" and she said..."YES!" and kendall said, "are you sure?" to which she again said, "yes!" so then he gives it to her and she holds it aloft and says, "let's march like a princess" and actually marches down the stairs with it held out in front of her and kendall and ethan trailing behind her!!! and she gets to the trash downstairs and says, "bye bye binky" and throws it in! crazy!
that night she was hard to get to sleep but not super bad and then the next day at nap we had to have a talk and that night she was better and only cried once and now...nothing. she's just fine. how crazy is that?
i told her to let me know when she wants to potty train herself:)
