And the only reason it was taken away yesterday was because it broke. I could see it was cracked (from Levi chewing on it) so I showed Joe and he promptly tore the tip right off...right in front of Levi. It nearly broke the kid's heart. Look at those sad eyes. That boy LOVES his "Oggy". And now Oggy is no more.
But he's surviving without his pacifier! I wanted to give him a substitute pacifier at nap yesterday but Joe said no. So we didn't. And he cried for a few minutes (less than 5...I timed it on my phone because it broke my heart) and then he took a solid two hour nap. And last night he slept all night without a pacifier. Today nap started without ANY crying. BUT he does tend to wake up sad and asking for Oggy. Lest I make it sound like complete smooth sailing over her.
But we are surviving.
No more pacifiers. It's like the end of an era around here.
