I'm so behind and so many things have happened. A few months ago, I decided we really need to kick Elinor's bubba (pacifier) to the curb. I think she knew it was coming. She had started becoming so obsessed with it, more than ever before. She wasn't sleeping through the night because she would wake up and couldn't find it.
A friend had told me that the pacifier fairy came to their house. Why hasn't anyone told me about this before?!! I started bringing the fairy up every once in awhile, asking Elinor what she wanted from the fairy. Build a bear! She had been begging for a my little pony build a bear for weeks. How perfect?
Finally one night I asked her if she wanted to write the fairy a note. She said yes! I let her write a note and she read out loud "bubba fairy, please take all my bubbas and give them to Sophia and janelles baby. I would like money to go to build a bear. Love Elinor". It was so sweet. We put all the bubbas in a box and left the note out.
The next morning she found her empty box and note from the fairy! We headed straight. to the mall. She loved the whole process of building her pinkie pie. She told the worker about her bubbas and how the fairy left her money. At the end she pulled out her $20 and paid for her own pony. She was so proud.
Since then she has only half asked for her bubba. She remembered quickly where they went. It was one of the quickest, easiest transitions ever.
Have you ever had to take a pacifier away at some point? How did you do it?
