Yesterday, the day after his second birthday, we banished August’s pacifier.  Since he was 1 year old, he was only allowed to have it in his bed during naps and at night.  Despite these restrictions, he’s remained incredibly attached.  Yesterday was filled with crying, moaning, gnashing of teeth, slobbery wailing, pleading, less sleep than necessary.

Cruel? Send him to college with it? A stiff drink despite the nursing situation?

He stand-still-stopped a 30 minute wailing fit to inform me politely that his “boogies” were on my shirt, and then resumed, on cue.

Today is a new day.
