We have slowly weaned him to nighttime only use, but up until lately he has not been open to the idea of giving up his binky.
A little piece of me has not been ready to give it up either. This is the last little bit of babyhood that Ethan has been holding on to.
He has grown up so much already! He has potty trained (this was his idea), is talking up a storm and plays independently in his room with Emma now.
Last night Ethan and I had a little talk, again.
I told him about the babies that needed binkies and that the binky fairy would come and take them away if he would give them to her.
We have had this talk before with the same outcome… a stern look and a big “NO!”.
Last night was different. Ethan looked at me and you could just see the wheels turning in his head.
He was deep in thought, and then handed his last two binkies to me.
I was a bit surprised and asked him what he wanted me to do with them.
He looked at me with a very serious look on his face and said “Give babies the binkies.”.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww…. *sniff sniff*
