Trying So Hard...To Break This Habit
Well, not actually a thumb sucker--more like a finger sucker, although she did start out sucking her thumb for
a short while.
Of course, one finger just wouldn't do the job, so pretty soon it became evident that Maddie would suck not
one, but two of her fingers!
Thumb and finger sucking has never really bothered us.
All three of our children sucked either their finger or their thumbs, and all of them stopped eventually.
However, lately, Maddie has been sucking her fingers more than ever before.
With the start of preschool right around the corner, Maddie's mom began thinking...about all of those germs
that will be lurking in the classroom.
It's time to give up this comforting habit--for the sake of health and teeth!
If Madison can stop sucking her fingers, she will get to go to Disney on Ice in a few weeks.
So far, so good.
Madison is really trying hard.
I hope she's successful...and gets to go to Disney On Ice.
Go Maddie! MiMi's rooting for ya'!
