We're here! We've survived!
Lukie and Gracie are going to sleep fine at night. Frankly, I'm surprised it is going so well. They are mostly staying asleep, but are waking up at 5 am.
They have asked a few times about the binkies. We remind them that they are broken and they threw them away. It has been taking a few times of reminding, but they are slowly internalizing the fact that the binkies are gone.
I'm glad we gave them the opportunity to decide to throw the binkies away. It made the process something they chose to do. Mommy and Daddy did not take them away. They chose to throw the binkies away. They had control. It has been incredibly helpful.
Gracie and Luke spent the day with Grandma and Grandpa. They were exhausted by the end of the day. Tomorrow, I have the day off from work and we are going to see how bad the rain is. We may actually go somewhere!
