{Bye Bye Binky! Binky Bye Bye!}

Well it happened! FINALLY AFTER MONTHS OF PREP the Binky Fairy {thanks for the suggestion Rachel} came and took Reegan's binky away into the clouds. We talked about this then talked more and talked even more...she knew all about the Binky Fairy and what was going down for quite some time. Tonight we picked balloons, she hand picked a baby doll she wanted to take home. We let her pick one balloon to keep {incase she might get upset about them going into the clouds}. Then collected all the binks in the house tied some to a balloon bundle, went to the tot lot and she let them go into the clouds. She opened her baby doll and we played in the park for a while. Then dinner and bath and watched Elmo's Bye Bye Binky song. Bed time took a little longer because she didn't have the binky to soothe her to sleep. Instead as I rocked her to sleep we talked about other big girl things she does..."tying" her shoes, putting her own clothes on, going potty in the toilet, starting school after she turns three...all while she cuddled Siri {the name of all her baby dolls}. Momma had extra patience with her tonight as she chatted and sung Bye Bye Binky because after all it was a huge milestone for my big girl an ex binky lover!!! No crying and she fell asleep in good time. Overall a great step in the right direction.

Do you have a lil one that needs to get rid of a bink? How did you do it?

Oh my gosh!!! That is such a good idea! Where was this post a year or so ago! Getting rid of the paci was a nightmare for us, but one of the best things ever when it was gone!
