preparing to be the mean mommy

Tonight is the night.

I am taking away The Bear's pacifier. He's 13 and 1/2 months old. He only uses it when he's sleeping (naps and nights) now. I want to get him off of it before Hubby gets home. I know I can partially tune out the screaming, but I don't want Hubby to have to endure that. I'm not so sure it's one of his strong suits. He's going to want to come home to a nice, loving home - not one with temper tantrums at night. I know the longer The Bear has it, the harder it's going to be to kick the habit. He was at this point in the middle of December, but being sick set him back a few paces.

I am preparing myself for the screaming that is going to come. The best moral support just came from a friend with a 15 month old boy. She reminded me it wasn't going to be the last time he was mad at me. Or the maddest he would ever be with me.

Part of being a Momma.

Hi Stephanie! Thanks for visiting my blog. I have a friend who's husband is about to be deployed for the first (and only, hopefully) time. Do you have any advice for her? She has a 14 mo. baby at home too.

My 2 1/2 year old still has her binky, *sigh*. Sounds like you have the right idea on kicking that habit early. I hope it goes well!
