Okay so my 3 year old still has her binky. Boo me all you want. She has one and at this point I am happy its only a binky a not a thumb. She would suck her thumb till she was 16 I know she would.

Matthew had a binky till he was just about 4 (same age as Liv) and his papa offered to get him a bunny if he threw away his binky's and sure enough 3 days later..Winnie the pooh binky was thrown away and set out to the curb ,or so he thought. I grabbed it out of the garbage and hid it for that Just-in-case-we-need-it-having-major-issues-moment. We never did. Next day Papa comes over sporting a new bunny he (Matthew) proudly named Cow&Chicken.

Here is what Bribes we had for Miss America

1) Binky Fairy will bring you a new bike. One that can hold your baby and barbies and has pom-poms on the handle bars.

2) I will let you get a pedicure and have a red flower on your toe.

3) You can get a big girl bed paint your room and put up polka dots

4) I will make you a new tutu and buy you a new Easter dress.

5) A new barbie?


Dad will take you to the fair and ride the Ferris wheel with you....

One night down with NO binky! Yippeeee!!

Who's your momma???
