Bye Bye, Binky & other life ramblings

So the pacifier, aka 'Binky', disappeared this morning.

I grabbed it off the bedside table and gave it to Ivy this morning as I gave her to Josh and went to brush my teeth. He claims he never saw it.

In my infinite wisdom (and because we're broke and can't buy a replacement), I decide that she's better off without it anyway. After all, Ivy is seven months old now. Her sucking instinct should be waning. And I was just musing the other day how she rarely wants her binky anymore...

Until it's nap time. She can nurse to sleep, but doesn't want to let go. I used to pull the old switcheroo on her, but that was impossible today. She really likes the binky to fall asleep.

She slept very, very poorly today. It sucked, but I must stay firm.

In other news, I'm extremely excited. In about one more hour, it's going to be mine & Josh's very first anniversary. How can this be, with a three year old?

Josh and I never really 'officially' started dating. In the beginning, as they say, he was dating one of my best friends (no - it's not that!) and had been for several years. When I came back from school and needed a place, I moved in with them and they became something of a family to me.

Fast-forward a couple years, I have my own pathetic excuse for a place but their house is still the happening place for the gang to hang out. They break up and much drama ensues. Josh needs a place to crash, so I let him stay with me.

And then it's just kind of stayed that way (right at the beginning of my On My Own Single Revelry phase). Since our relationship sort of snuck up on us, we never actually had an anniversary.

The man has got off lightly for five years now. So we now have an anniversary: March 18. Yay!

congrats to the anniversary AND no more binky!!! We called ours "nuks" and last week we "lost" all of them. Keep in mind my oldest is 2 1/2..Yeah its bad I know...They havent asked for them, but the sleep was HORRIBLE for a couple days.. Thats the only time they used them, naps and "ni-night" time.....They've been falling asleep and staying asleep on their own...I know its hard though, Ive been tempted several times to just go get another one, but Ive stayed strong...Im sending no-binky-strong-will vibes your way :) Enjoy your anniversary!!!

Thank you! Yeah, poor Ivy is sleep-deprived - and the day after shots, too! But she'll learn, if only because we can't find the stupid thing. Thank you for the vibes! Eden never took to a binky (I never wanted them to at all, but Ivy was a colicky baby), so this is a new experience for us.

I had my fluffy (pacifier) until I was 5.

Fluffy - what a cute name! I have to admit that I've never been a fan of big kids using them. The sucking reflex generally ebbs by 3-6 months, and that's the only redeeming benefit for pacifiers. I swore we wouldn't use on at all, until Ivy had colic. 8-O Of course, I said the same thing about potty training, and now I've still got my 3 yr old running around in pull-ups -- guess kids are here to teach us lessons in preferences.

I know it's a bit belated, but Happy Anniversary.

Thank you! Josh had to work that day, so we didn't really get a chance to celebrate. :( I ended up passing out when I laid down to feed the baby. I just told him this morning that since we haven't had but one in all these five years, we should have an anniversary week. :P
