So while I was in the hospital Lillias stayed with my in-laws and my sister-in-law's family who are currently living with them. After some talking to about big-sisters not needing a binky, she gave it to them. Now this ordinarily would have been a great thing (especially since she is almost 3) but, when I came home my sweet Lillias was a VERY different child. I'm sure some of the cranky, won't calm down different child behavior was due to the new baby... but I really felt that a lot of the problem was that she had lost her binky, i.e. her comfort. So after two weeks and a lot of tears on both of our parts I gave her back the bink! Even my parents noticed a big difference, she is back! She calms down and even cuddles again! Now I realize that I am just putting off the inevitable... but timing is everything and the time is not now :)
Hello, my name is binky enabler, and I'm proud of it!
My two girls!
