Desperate times

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Today I actually found myself trying to teach A how to suck her thumb at age 2.

Mommy: "You know, when I was your age I sucked my thumb. Like this. Suck, suck. It helped me sleep. Maybe you should try it..."

A: "Ulgh mommy. Thumb yucky."

Mommy: "Sigh. I suppose, but just think about it in the middle of the night, OK? Suck, suck."

Our dentist would just flip if he heard that conversation.
