    Default No more binkie LO

    We finally took the binkie away from Cadence a couple of weeks ago.... I had to scrap this monumentous event.



    Text reads: "Well Cadence, I knew this day would eventually come. The day where we would take that precious binkie away. You only were allowed to have it during naptime and bedtime, but you were getting older, and we knew it was time to finally say goodbye. Daddy told you that you were a big girl now and that some other kids needed your binkie. You smiled and said ok. But when it was time for bed, you threw a huge fit (crying, screaming, and banging on the door) that lasted about 45 minutes until you fell asleep. The next day when it was time for nap you were upset again when we didn’t give you your binkie. You finally went to sleep and when mommy came to get you, this is what I saw as I opened the door. A BIG MESS!! Books and toys were scattered everywhere. But, it was a small price to pay, as afterall, you are a big girl now! "


    (ETA: that's Cadence's binkie that I took a picture of.... I can't let her see this page otherwise she'll be crying for it again!... SHH!!)

    Can anyone see what's awfully weird about this page?!?

    I see Cadence in the picture twice! I am guessing her standing in the middle of the room was taken from another picture and pasted into this picture!?!

    I remember dreading taking Xavier's binkie away. We had cut him down to mostly just nap and bedtime (although if he got grumpy in public we caved and gave it to him). Then one weekend he lost the last two we had. So I didn't rush out and buy more. I think it was far too easy....a couple days he looked in the places I would put it up out of his reach until he could have it at nap time. But that was it. He didn't throw any fits or loose any sleep. We got way way lucky!

    Unless you had said something, I'd have never gone back and looked for the "something wierd". So I don't think anyone will notice the two Cadence's. It's a great page to scrapbook! I was so upset when K wouldn't take the paci but after hearing some parenting stories about taking it away, I'm not so discouraged anymore. The "NO" on your title is great!

    Great page! I didn't notice Cadence was in there 2x until I read Meoldy's post and had to go look for her! I am sorry she had such a hard time giving it up. We took Kayley's away while she had a cold (I know that sounds cruel to take it while she is sick), but she was so stuffy she couldn't suck on it anyways and she never looked back, let alone ask for it! PHEW!

    I seriously love that layout. It is beautiful and the journaling is great. How old was she? I don't think I have it in me to take Brooks pacis yet even though I know I need to.

    Aw. We started out with only using the paci when Tessa was in bed or the car. One day in the car she bit a hole in it and told me it did not work (about 18 months old) and I never replaced it. At 20 months we stopped keeping it in the bed and only gave it to her if she asked for it, some days she did and others she did not after a few weeks she just stopped asking for it, out of site out of mind. Yet if she sees one now she pops it right in.
