Whatever!

What to muse about today?

Look who is down for her second night sleeping without a bubble. Yay! So proud of her. So never thought we’d actually get here.

She decided on Sunday morning that she was giving her bubbles to Ashlin. The first nap of the day did not go very well, she begged for it back. Eventually, she settles, though never slept. Second nap, we ended up getting it back, with much reluctance on our part.

We had a chat with her about needing to go through with what you say you are going to do, and with how big she is, and she really didn’t need her pacifier any more.

Yesterday, she decided that she was done, and gave her sister her bubbles again. And after a few false starts and some delay tactics, she went down, without her bubble. And stayed down.

When she woke up this morning, we didn’t make a big deal about her achievement. It was business as usual. After yelling to the neighborhood that she could see my underwear – I was getting dressed for work – Stu took them off to day care, and chatted with her on the way, promising chicken donuts if she made it the whole week. A dinner of nuggets isn’t too difficult of a reward.

We’re on night two. Tonight was easier. Fingers crossed!

    Good for you, Teagan. She probably used it longer because of Ashlin’s use which is common. I’m glad that you guys didn’t force her to give it up before she was ready.

      That’s very possible, Kat. She will pull attention from Ashlin back to her, maybe she still felt she needed it. We were willing to wait as long as we needed to, as long as we weren’t being told by the dentist that it was hurting her teeth. Teagan is really one kid that needs to do things in her own time. Once she realizes that she can, she excels.
