The Zower in the Shower


Little Bit would rather take a shower over a bath any day of the week. And lately she's been showing off her "scary face." Lovely isn't it? 

So we have a BIG DAY in store on Friday. We are heading over to Gracie's house for a HUGE celebration. A joint "Bye Bye Paci" party. Complete with a cake and helium balloons to sail away all remaining pacis. And when they wake up, a gift from the paci fairy.  Sophie B. still gets her paci for nap at daycare and to sleep at night but come Friday, it's no more! I'll pay anyone $500 to stay at my house on Friday night so I can go sleep at a hotel. Please? I'm begging.

I had myself all worked up when I took Bella's binkie away and it ended up being a lot easier than I thought it would be. I was expcting the fight of all fights. I took the advise of my best friend and hid all the binkies except one and on that one I snipped off the tip of it. Well sure enought she popped it in her mouth and right back out and said - "My B is broke" She tried it a time or two more and asked about it aloth throughought the day and begged for it a bit at night - but I just reminded her that is was broke and she was ok with it. The sleep took about 2-3 days of adjusting but not horrible. Maybe this could help too!

Loving the scary face. BTW, 500.00 wouldn't even close to paying me to keep Sophie Friday night, and that's my girl. Wishing you well on that front.

Man, I wish Jonathan would do a shower--it would be so much easier!

As for the paci, J-man gave his up A LOT easier than I thought he would. Bryan just told him it was gone, he went right to bed and that was it! I hope yours goes as well!!

Good luck! I bet it goes smoother than you think (or I hope it does for your sake!) :)

Best of luck!! Hopefully it will be easy for you, hopefully.

Don't worry, Kim. It will be a lot easier than you think. I say cut the nipple part off the paci and let her take to bed. It worked like a charm with Cameron! Good luck!

Cute picture! Zack preferred showers too, until Addison start bathing in the big tub. Now they take baths together.

Good luck on Friday! Zack didn't miss an minute of sleep when we took his away.

I ditto everyone else. It's not nearly as bad as you think it will be.

Cute picture! Since you will probably be up most of Friday night, would you like to keep a sweet baby boy as well? :) Good luck on Friday!!
