My mom says we need a Mary without binkie update, so here it is. I’m tired and cross. She cries a lot more both day and night without a binkie. Her average bedtime? 11:30. Naps have been accomplished only by putting her in the car or stroller when she’s past the point of exhaustion. However, she has learned about five new words in the last two days — who knew that having something in your mouth all day would slow down your verbal development?
This isn’t fun, but it was time, and I’m not going to give up.
