Look who's a big girl!

So, this morning, Sage comes up to me with her soother and points out the fact that it has a hole in it. And I thought: "Here's our chance to get rid of it!" So, I suggested because it's broken, that she should put it in the garbage. And she did.

I even got a picture of her putting it in the garbage.

What I didn't get pictures of, however, were the tears and drama that followed all morning when she'd ask for her soother. I'd remind her that she put it in the garbage and she'd cry and say: "But I need it! I need my soother!"

Then, at naptime, when she always uses it to fall asleep, it was a very difficult time. More tears. More drama. More: "I need it! You get it, Mom!"

And then she actually snuck out of her room and walked to the kitchen garbage where she was going to try to get it back! I wrapped up the garbage and threw it out.

So, it's been a bit of a long day. Nightime routine was minus the crying (thankfully!) but it took her a LONG time to fall asleep.

Hopefully it'll get easier after this!

Awww....praying for comfort for her and strength for you.

It's hard to get rid of our crutches, even as adults. :-)

Hopefully the first day is the worst, right? I know it's going to be hard for Jonas too once the time comes.
