Saying Good-bye

I can't remember a day in the last 4 years, 4 months and 2 days that you haven't been found somewhere in my home. Whether you lay in one of the kids' beds or hid under a sofa cushion.. You were always here. You have been a loyal friend to the kids and a great night sift worker. You knew how to calm the babies after a shot or lull them to sleep with your soothing ways. You were only a string pull away whenever they needed you. So thank you.. dear friend.. for being such a great part of the small O'villers' life. Heck, my life. You gave me many peaceful extra minutes of sleep. So, again, thank you. You will be remembered fondly.


Ahem...

Since Nathan is sleeping through the night (at least 3 nights a week now... soooo nice) I figured it was just way too easy and decided to chunk his pappy.. because you know.. I like drama. No really, he has a cold and wasn't using it much because he couldn't breathe so I figured it was a good time. So that's what I did and we are on day 4 without it. So it got trashed today. It's the end of an era. There has been a pappy in one or more of the kids' mouths since November 15, 2004 (the day Jon Kent was born). What will I do with all the extra money we will be saving!?!?

Good Job Nathan!! It is a big day for our little ones today...mine wore "big boy" pants all day and kept them dry!! Another sadly reminder of how our babies aren't babies anymore!!

Sorry to hear the baby is sick, but good planning on your part to get rid of the pappy while you got the chance. I know it was a sad day when my grandson got rid of his. Daughter was the one not sure about it. I had to be the meany. Hope the baby gets better soon.
Take care, Chrissie

WTG! I know that can be a difficult thing to do. Wait, what am I saying? My three year old still uses one at night. ::hangs head in shame:: I didn't give one to Maddie b/c I was terrified she'd end up like Ry, lol!

Even though it's a good thing...it's still sort of sad, isn't it?

These 'end of an era' things really bother me when it comes to my kids. :)

But I say go get a pedicure with the extra money. Summer is on it's way and we have to have nice, primped footsies.

Colds are the easiest time to get rid of pacifiers I think. Jordyn was easy to get rid of hers, she had turned them into a toy...she'd throw it across the room and then crawl to it and throw it again! So I bagged them all up and they were gone. Jacob was 4 months old, got a cold and never got it again. Jack only had one while in NICU, then I became his pacifier and Emma had one once while in the hospital, because Daddy put it in her mouth, she hated it. Here's to a new era in your home...pacifier free!
