See that little green paci from long ago? Well, G has been attached to it for SO LONG. In the last year, he has only had it at night....
....and I have received NUMEROUS tips on how to get him off and how he was too old...and way too much unsolicited parenting advice about that darn paci....
We tried the Pacifier Fairy book (where the fairy comes to get your paci and leaves you a toy), we've cut off the tip...you name it, we did it.
And then there was this week...G woke up Monday with a low grade fever. Being the super paranoid mommy that I am, we took him to his doctor who said he had strep. That night, we talked with him about how the paci would make the boo boo in his throat worse so we were going to throw them away. And what do you know??
The pacis are trashed and my boy hasn't looked back.
And thanks to his short bout with strep as well. Who knew that would be such a blessing?
So long, little green paci!
