Trying So Hard...To Break This Habit

 It wasn't long into little Maddie's young life before it became evident that she was going to be a "thumb


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!

Maddie's mom gave her some helpful incentive to stop sucking her fingers.

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'!

Some habbits are just so hard to stop! I understand how that is as do most people. Go Maddie!

Go Maddie for sure. Our serious thumb sucker enters 3rd grade this fall. And your casual attitude may be best, Like your little ones, he drpped the habit, I think around kindergarten. Hope you update as to whether Disney on Ice ranked higher than the comfort at her fingertips!
