Bye bye binky.
So last Thursday Kamden collected all his binkys and put them in a bag. We told him that the binky fairy was going to come and get them and take them to little babies who needed them. We told him that he was a big boy and didn't need them anymore. He did this pretty willingly. So we put the bag out on the front steps for the fairy to come and get. ( A technique the Nanny uses on the T.V show Super Nanny.) It wasn't five minutes before he started crying for his binky. I was determined thought that it was time to say good bye to binks. So we got his mind off the binky and on something else. Later when he went outside to look for the binkys there was a surprise for him that the fairy left saying thanks. He got really excited especially about the trail of sparkles she had left behind. I felt that things were going well and I started feeling much better about my decision to toss them. Well that was until 10:30 that night when I had been trying for two hours to get Kam to sleep, but he kept screaming and crying in hysterics for his binky. Oh yes. Now almost a week later my once upon a time great sleeper is now a not so good sleeper. Nap time, bedtime, he cries! Middle of the night, he cries. He has been having such a hard time without his binky. I feel so bad for him. I mean really whats the harm in a 10 year old having a binky still? Okay well I am glad I did it, but I feel sad for Kamden. It was his comfort, his calm, his soother. He really loved that thing! I know soon everything will be okay again but I just feel bad for him for now.
Well the past four days have been absolutely beautiful! It is so nice to be outside again. Kamden has just loved it and Karson has even had his fair share of enjoyment outdoors. This last weekend we got the spring yard pick up done. We took the boys on a walk in their wagon and they loved it. Yesterday we went and joined the community center. There is an indoor pool, a gym, a rock climbing wall, and all sorts of fun stuff for the kids. Last night we went swimming there. The kids had so much fun, and Karson just loved it! It was his first time in a pool. I think that we are going to love it there.
One of my favorite things is in the morning the boys just love watching Justin leave to work. They sit on the couch and look out the window, wave and blow kisses good bye. It is so cute!
So my next big task. Potty training! Kam has a little potty, and I try getting him to sit on it and he has NO Interest in it! I haven't really pushed him into doing it but I am getting sick of changing diapers. So I am determined to get him potty trained by the end of this month. So if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
