Another milestone here. This one is a big one. As any parent can attest, this one is a huge fucking deal.
We bid the binky a fond farewell. Good riddance. See ya. Later gator. Buh bye.
Five days ago after a visit to the dentist, the decision was made. While I admit, I felt as if I might cave in certain situations, daddy was adamant and firm. I knew how much comfort Julia had always gotten from her nipple-shaped silicone fix. I was nervous, but daddy was resolute.
Those fuckers were bound for the trash.
I went off to work for two nights and left the brunt of the work of binky detox to hubby.
He rocked it.
Our daughter couldn’t care less that her once-beloved binks are now gone. She didn’t even bat an eye over this new normal.
I honestly have no idea how we got so damn lucky, but I’ll take it. Now, I’m looking forward to seeing more of our daughter’s beautiful smile instead of a mouth full of plastic.
