No More Paci!

After 3 1/2 years, we decided it was time for Mia to get rid of her paci (with the help of the dentist who said it was messing up her teeth). She was starting to get really dependent on it, and wanted it all the time. All the other attempts to take it away had failed, so we were really worried about how we were going to do it. Well, we went with the bribery technique. The first day that she went without her paci, we went for ice cream. The next day she got lip gloss. We told her if she went all week without it, then she would have a special day where she could go and pick out a toy. She wanted to fly her paci away....she wanted to tie it to balloons and send it to heaven so God could give it to a baby that needed it. Minus two little meltdowns at naptime, she did great! We couldn't believe that she went from having it alot, to not at all, so we were pleasantly surprised. She flew it away and has been fine ever since. Thank God for that!

There it goes! We were surprised it took 4 mylar balloons to fly it away!

"Bye Bye Paci!"

And this is what she chose for not having her paci anymore....
