It's a big day here with me and my three year giving up the dummy. He made the decision to give it up was very brave throwing it away but was then too sad to leave the tip.
My job has been to encourage a very sad boy to nap without 'Having something to trap his mouth'. The good news is he did nap and he didn't suck his thumb. Tonight will be the big test when he does his first ever night sleep without a dummy.
I must admit inside I'm as unsure about this working as he is but I have be braver. I am as sad as he is that this is one more transition away from baby to boyhood. I have to set aside my feelings to encourage this little dude to bigs things one small step at a time. The good news is I have wine, the bad news is I'm flying solo tonight at Daddy is late at work.... 🤞🤞🤞😢
