I realized I never posted about one of the biggest hurdles we've overcome as parents... the thing I've been dreading for months now.
Last weekend, we gave up binkies.
And my children decided it wasn't the only thing they were giving up.
At their two year check up, our doctor suggested we have a family meeting, tell them they're big boys and it's time to give them up. He said to give them something else to get attached to instead.
Throwing any advice from the doctor out the window, instead we went to the Disney store and we were going to let them pick out a toy and "pay" with their binkies.
My kids did not want one toy in the Disney store!
Are my kids even human?!?
Did they not understand what a once in a lifetime opportunity they had?!?
They could have had practically anything in the Disney store.
Bug kept picking up Cars characters but when I asked if he wanted to take it home, he'd put it back.
They literally were not interested in anything.
To say I was shocked is an understatement.
And it made me wonder if they really understand as much as people say they do.
We did walk out with a 2nd Ligthning McQueen car but we'd already planned on that one because they fight over the one we had already.
Except now Peanut has claimed both of them.
Since they weren't interested in the toys at Disney, we just took the binkies away.
That ish was hard.
mourning the loss of their naps. I'm not even home during the week to
miss them, but when I get home I'm greeted by whines, and tears, and general grumpiness; I miss my happy, smiley babies.
Although I do appreciate the cuddles.
