More than not, this is how you will find Faith in our house.
She's cuddled up on the couch, or her bed, or our bed...but always with blankie.
She LOVES that blankie almost more than anything else.
In fact, she calls it "she".
As in, "Mom, have you seen my blankie? I can't find her."
And while it's the sweetest thing in the world that she loves that blankie so much, there is one little problem.
She also sucks her thumb when she has blankie.
And the dentist and pediatrician keep telling us that she has to stop sucking her thumb, but other than taking blankie away, we have tried everything.
As soon as she starts holding blankie, the thumb goes in the mouth.
Soooo, we are left with a decision.
Do we take blankie away, (in which case there will be many tears, tantrums and and pretty much no sleep for at least several days), OR do I let her keep her blankie and just accept the fact that she may be still sucking her thumb in high school?
I'm just afraid to remove blankie because it's so special to her and has been with her since she was an infant. It makes her feel safe and loved and happy.
But I have a feeling that buck teeth and sucking her thumb in high school will kind of have the opposite effect.
Have you been down this road? What did you do? And how did it go?
