Trip has never been a big fan of having his teeth brushed. So, yesterday I had the dentist take a look at Trip's teeth while we were there for Ruby's cleaning (which, by the way, he was sooo good and sat perfectly still). No cavities but he did remind me that it was time to get rid of the pacie. As soon as we got in the car I explained to Trip that he was now 2 and a big boy so he didn't need a pacie anymore- pacies are for babies. At nap time he said, "no pacie. I big boy now" and that was pretty much it. I couldn't believe that he went to sleep with no fuss at all. He was a little whinier than usual this morning but overall this no-pacie transition has been a breeze. Way to go, Trippy! You really are a big boy!............ I hope potty-training will be this easy.
