We are officially a Sucky-free family. Eric grudgingly gave up the sucky 2 nights after it “disappeared”. He was very upset the third night, but only becuase he really wanted to give the sucky to his friend’s new baby brother. Since I still have them, I told him I thought we could still give Will the sucky. That calmed him down & off to sleep he went.
Don’t get the idea that Eric has suddenly become easy to put to bed though. Oh no. That drama continues, almost nightly for your listening pleasure. He fights, screams, crys, whines, bargains, and screams some more. Last night he screamed so long he woke up Nathan, who’d gone to bed early & had been sleeping well for 3 hours. Coulda killed him, really. Instead, I watched Desperate Housewives while writing a paper for my course & let Neil deal with it. We take turns. It was soooooooooooo his turn.
Did I remember to tell all you closet-sucky lovers, our dentist said it isn’t really a concern until the permanent teeth start coming in. So, maybe this wasn’t as bad as I thought. Besides, I have a good dental plan. Always thinking, I am.
Oh, and for all you lovely southern readers, it was a balmy minus 10 celsisus yesterday (water takes about 1 hour to freeze at that temperature, we walk around without hats). Today we’re back to the deep freeze & my sister in law is headed (with her husband!) to Mexico. I’d be jealous, but I’m too cold.
