The long-overdue event in Max's life has arrived: bye-bye binky. Maximus has slept with a pacifier every night of his life. Now that we are well past the 2 1/2 year mark... it's definitely time to bid farewell to the much adored binky.
Two nights ago we snipped off the end of his binky with some scissors, and when he found it in his bed, we just told him it was broken. In Max's mind this was really no problem, and he just proceeded to ask if we could go to the store and buy a new one. Smart kid. We said no, but gave him a new little stuffed dog friend, "Chata" (the name of his Grandpa and Abuelita's dog that he loves) to keep him company while he sleeps.
So far, so good. There has been some crying, but overall the transition to binky-free sleeping has been a successful one.
