For as long as I can remember, Kai has used the two middle fingers on his right hand as a pacifier. Being a first-time parent who knew better than anyone else, I was dead set against a pacifier for him. I'd seen a four year old at a baseball game walking around and talking with the pacifier in her mouth, and there was no way a kid of mine would be doing that. It's amazing how perspective changes things. It's so tough to see him struggle to break this habit, but so far the bribes are helping! We'll keep everyone updated on his progress, but for now his habit has decreased tremendously.
Kai, I am so proud of your will power and determination to do what is right. You'll thank us later, I promise!
