No Binkies & Big Girl Beds

Well we had a wonderful birthday for Connor & a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with Grandma & Grandpa. But the most noteworthy news is - no more binkies and we are in big girl beds!!! Emily is taking it much better than Taylor. How did this occur you ask? When we got to Grandma & Grandpa's on Tuesday night (like 1 am so more like Wednesday morning), the girls were UP. Well so was Connor but I at least can tell him to lie down. So we played a little and they still had their binkies from the ride and I proceeded to tell them that Grandma does not allow binkies in her house. They immediately took them out of their mouths and handed them to me. And that was the end. It was not smooth. Still isn't as Taylor keeps waking up. At least now she is asking for her blanket instead of a binkie.

Of course, when we got home Saturday night, as soon as we put them in their cribs they cried for their binkies. We did not give in and they went to bed within about 10 mins. (They were tired!). So Sunday morning we switched their beds to toddler beds and they are big girls now and don't need their binkies!! So far it's kinda working. I just need to figure out how to get Taylor to calm herself down and QUIT waking up in the middle of the night. I think I need to hit the store and buy two toddler sheet/comforter sets so I can tuck them in and maybe that will help. I can only try right??

Last night Taylor kept waking up every hour. We tried to ignore her but she kept getting louder. Guess why?? She made it into the hallway and took her shirt off.?.? Not sure why. Surbjit asked her what was wrong but she was so worked up it took her awhile to say anything. Finally she said she had to go potty so Surbjit took her to the potty. Did she go? No but she tried. Whatever. Of course this morning she wouldn't wake up. Gee I wonder why she was so tired. Ugh. I hope tonight is better!!!

That is wonderful Heather. You are doing such a great job with them. And honestly kids can do without stuff as long as the parents don't give in and tough it out. It didn't take too long for Kendalynn to adjust to not having hers but now it's the whole teeth issue...but it seems to be getting better.
