yep, that's right!! the binks are all gone here at the stejskal house....and have been for over a month! i just didn't want to jinx it by saying or writing a word about it! after all of the times and effort we put into getting rid of them with kate (and she may or may not have been TOTALLY stealing and stashing them to use at night!), i decided we would just make them all disappear. no trading, no giving them to other babies, no buying new things at the store for them (have i mentioned how many times kate got "rid" of them!). vic and i just quietly went around the house, gathered them up, and threw them all away! and guess what...will was completely fine with it! he never asked for them. the first two days i could tell he was a little thrown off when it was nap time, but he fussed for maybe 5 minutes and then went to sleep without them. he has found a couple of stray binkis and come to show me with a big smile on his face...so i tell him, "binks are for babies! throw that away!" and he thinks that getting to chuck it into the garage towards the garage can is really funny and is happy to do it!
so there you go...zero effort on my part and they are gone!!
just another reason why i may or may not have a favorite child around here ;)
