Update (2:00PM): Nap time sucks! He has been in his room for almost two hours whinning and crying about me and the Binky. What was I thinking?? OK, OK - just stay strong, right?
First you have to be totally fed up with your child still using a Binky. I am not saying that this a general rule for everyone but our family alone. Anyway, for some reason, Jacob has decided lately that he needs his Binky every hour of every day instead of just during nap and bedtime. To me this is just not acceptable but when he sits there yelling and demanding his Binky, it is just so easy to plug him up and end the drama.
Well, for the sake of weaning and proving my point (probably not the way to go about it), I just cut off the nipple part this morning and told him he could have his Binky.
Let's just say that didn't go over too well. We had screaming, falling to the ground, hysteria, throwing, hitting, gagging, and the list could go on.
Now he is quietly playing in the other room but every once in a while I hear him yell out "Bad bad Mommy!" Nap time should be real interesting today! (I do have others hidden that are still in tact. Oh, but please let me be strong!)
Do you think he will be scarred for life?
