We're paccy-free for two days now! Mat and I have been talking about this for a while, but we weren't sure when to start. Saturday morning we were up in Braeden's room, reading books and laughing. All of a sudden he really, really wanted his paccy. But there was no reason, so we didn't give it to him. And that was it. No real discussion; we just agreed not to give it to him.
As a compromise, we're giving it to him when we put him down for the night and for his naps. Otherwise we're paccy-free in the Potter-Gendle household! Honestly, it's going really well. There have been a few moments where he was really upset and clearly looking for his paccy, otherwise it's been pretty smooth sailing. And tomorrow we'll take the paccy from day care, and that will be the end of it.
What a big boy he's becoming!
