5 days ago we said goodbye to a dear friend, Mr Binky. He spent countless hours with Brody for 26 months of his life and Brody didn't go anywhere without one! I took Brody in for his annual dental appt on his 2 year birthday, the pediatric dentist took one look at his mouth and said, he sucks a pacifier doesn't he? We knew it was time to take the pacifier away but we had to wait until it was the right time for both Brody and us. Months prior it was removed from his afternoon nap, then we took it away during the car ride so for the last couple of months he only got it at bed time. The slow transition definitely made it easier for him (and us), first couple of nights he asked for it but now he doesn't. I had the joy of throwing them all in the trash on Saturday. Good work Mr Brody!
