Plug Party

Katrina has had a pacifier (known in our home as plug) since she was born. She is now 3. I've been talking about her becoming a big girl and giving up her plug recently. Finally, I struck the right chord...we would have a party!

Katrina had her Plug Party on Thursday. She had cupcakes and decorations. She sucked her plugs a little, and then put them in a box. We wrapped them up to "give" to baby Andrew...a newborn brother of Katrina's close playmate Jaime.

Well, Thursday night was not fun. Friday, she wouldn't nap, but did sleep well at night due to the lack of daytime sleep. It is now 10pm, and she's still not asleep. Sleeping with her in her little toddler bed until she's asleep has helped...but it won't be a long-term solution either. I've heard it takes a while to adjust. As long as a while isn't much more than a week, I guess I'll be ok.

I'm really proud of her for giving it up. I just wish I knew what she could use to comfort herself during this transition. Right now, she is upstairs giggling.

We did that for Allie when she was a baby. Except Allie's was a "Nookie Party".


I sympathize with the no sleep struggle.
