The many many days with that green thing!

Just want to let everyone know we did it! We are officially binkie free! I went away to girls camp and I came back and he hasn't even asked for it since (with one exception, but quickly remembered the stupid binkie was broken). I almost cried the first time I put him down and he didn't ask for it! I cannot believe I did it. I actually did it! I am absolutely over the stars proud of myself and Carter. I don't think anybody understands the degree of this accomplishment. HUGE! I must say there is a part of me that misses that green thing, it got us through many a tough days...but I am glad we conquered it. Now onto potty training and getting little miss to sleep through the night. Does it ever end...

Signing out a very happy mom!

No Fun. I am having absolute regrets about this whole binkie thing! What in the world was I thinking. What's wrong with binkies anyhow. Yesterday was a cake walk compared to today. Carter has slapped me in the face, thrown his water cup at me, cried in his bed for an hour when it was time for his nap, and never did go to sleep (and I needed that nap desperately today!) However, I must say there is some good news in this posting. I am leaving! Right now. In minutes. I am headed up to girls camp for a couple days with baby Cam. All I have to say is good luck Jason!

Signing out...Detox Day 2

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


I am absolutely heartbroken. We made it through the day and did really well. We even made it through our nap with no binkie. Carter really seemed to understand that his binkies have gotten old. He is extremely sad. Honestly his little face makes ME want to burst into tears. Bedtime tonight has not gone so smooth. He has been crying and whimpering for the last 30 minutes. I have gone in a few times to comfort him, he just says "I want my bibi". It's so sad. If Jason hadn't held me back I would have given him one! I finally sang him some songs that seemed to take his mind off it. I feel like a horrible mom who has just taken away his most prized possession. What mother does that!! Just need to remember I know whats best...or do I...what's the big deal about a binkie...why CAN'T he have one still??? Signing out not happy....DETOX DAY 1

Binkie DETOX Day 1

Here we go...Carter would not stop asking for his binkie this morning and I am getting so sick of it. So I just did it! Ahh...what did I just do. I got some good advice from a friend in my ward so I think I can do it. We'll see.

So here we go Detox Day 1:

Oh my gosh, this is the saddest face I have ever seen. I want to run and give him a binkie so bad! I think this may be more of a detox for mommy!
