I can not believe how easy taking away Owen's suckie (soother) has turned out to be! I expected a HUGE fight. I expected TONS of crying. I expected constant whining.
We traded him his beloved suckie for a new toy he has wanted. He was a little distressed last night when he got to bed and realized he wouldn't have his suckie. He wanted to trade us back but I told him his suckie was gone. He cried for a couple minutes. Then he went to sleep. And he slept all night no problem. And he didn't ask for the suckie once today. Not even at bedtime.
If I had known this would be so easy I would have done it ages ago.
I am thinking God knew I had enough going on and was gracious to me by helping Owen through this transition.
What a relief.
