Thumb Sucking

A did it !  A was a thumb sucking baby right from birth. A couple years ago she stopped sucking it on a routine basis and went to just naps and bedtime. When she dropped naps, it was down to just bedtime. Oh has she had a hard time with that. And she doesn’t even suck it all night, just for a couple of minutes and once she’s out, she’s done. 

So I came up with an incentive for her to work towards. You can call it bribery if you want. But really it was more of an incentive. When she went for 1 full month without sucking her thumb at all, not even one time, I’d buy her 10 new fingernail polishes. Because she’s all girly girl and love polish. 

She did it. She’s gone about 2 full months. Polish was on sale and she picked them out. She got some good bright ones. Technically there’s 11 here, just because.
