Who has the smartest kid ever?

This girl!

We FINALLY decided that Ryan needed to give up his pacifier, he will be 3 in a couple of weeks. He was only getting it at night and nap time. He chomped a hole in it and it wasn't safe. And he didn't want a new one.

So last night (while I was working) we decided to get rid of it. Greg showed him that there was a hole in it and they threw it away together. He slept his normal 10ish hours of sleep with no crying!! Nap time has been a bit of a challenge today but that's to be expected.

Go Ryan!!! And go Greg!!


  1. That's great.

    I heard a crafty idea. With her daughter, a mom planted the retired pacifier in some soil and said that the paci fairy would come at night. During the night, the mom planted some lollipops in the soil so it seemed that lollipops had grown in place. I thought that was very cute, but Ryan might be too old to believe it. Actually, it's better that you did it your way. :-)

  2. I love that idea!!! Ryan totally would've fallen for it too. Dang it, and I can't even try it with Lauren in the future because she doesn't take a pacifier. Somehow planting her thumb doesn't seem quite as plausible ;)
