bye bye binki

Spring came came and went like a flash. Why is it that some weeks drag on forever, yet the days off with my family fly by.  I don't know, but I don't like.  We loved every minute of our spring break.  It rained and it snowed.  We cleaned, played basketball on the driveway, got pedicures in town, wore out our pajamas, stayed up late, and slept in.  It was awesome!!!

We also got rid of our binki.  I knew the day would come that I must say good-bye to Mr. Binki, but there was a part of me that had a hard time letting go.  I just didn't want to do it.  I often joked with my friends that I didn't care if she took her binki to kindergarten.  Really, I was only joking, but not really. 

Now that the binki is "broken" and Cydney threw it in the trash, I know why I had a hard time accepting the fact that the binki must go.  It's just another little thing that means my baby is growing up.  She did great...not a fit, or really much of a whimper.  My heart is whimpering now...I don't want any of babies to grow up.  I love them just the way they are.  (Why am I teary as I am writing this?  I think I must be hormonal or something...please help!!!)

There is something about that adorable, pudgy face with a binki that makes my heart melt.  Something I want to hold on to FOREVER. 

Now that Cydney has given up the binki, I guess it is my turn to clean all the binkis and throw them away.
Bye Bye Binki!!!

What sweet pics! One day, we will both be standing at some ceremony or another, crying, because our babies are growing up. We will think about binki and know that we made it through that stage and draw strength to make it through the next.
