Benaiah LOVES his pacifier.
He calls it, his "soo soo" (Short for the Canadian term for pacifier: a soother)
But it is waaay past time to be done with it. But every time that has been mentioned, Benaiah would cry and say, "noooo!" as if we were asking the worst, most hurtful thing of him.
So, attempting to reap any benefit possible out of his Thomas-train addiction, I bought him a package of train cars. This morning at breakfast we showed him the box and gave him his zip-lock bag of "soo-soos" and told him that if he threw them away he could have these trains.
He literally ran to the garbage can.
I give him until tonight to realize what he has done...
Gotta love the impulsive two year old stage. Usually it works against you...sometimes though...
it can be a mother's greatest blessing... :)
