No more Nuk!


Nukkie Free!
{Let's hope it sticks}

Abby came up to me while I was feeing Makenzie yesterday and said, "No more Nunie (Nuk), I give it to Kenzie."
My jaw dropped and I said, "Ok, is that cause you are a big girl?"
She said, "Yep" and walked away.

{In my head I didn't really think she was serious. She LOVES her Nuk}

She asked if we could call daddy to tell him. 
He told her he would get her a surprise and asked her what she wanted.
She told him a Princess Barbie {WHAT?? She only has three Barbies and they were mine when I was little...how does she know what a princess Barbie is?!}

Nap time was a little rough, I let her wear some of her play jewerly to bed, and sleep with her sunglasses and purse.
She kept whining about her 'nunie,' so I told her she could have it, but wouldn't get the princess Barbie daddy was bringing her. She insisted on the princess Barbie, so I told her she could sleep in our bed for nap.

 

She woke up happy and Nuk free. YEAH!

When daddy got home, Abby was waiting by the door. She was SO happy when he pulled our her princess Barbie from the bag.
   

  

 
(Chase felt left out, he wanted in on the pictures)

She didn't ask for it for the rest of the day and into the night and when night time came, we told her that since she had her new princess Barbie, she couldn't have her Nuk. She fell asleep pretty quick and didn't even wake up during the night.

We gave up our "Key" on Christmas Eve. She gave all of them to Santa in a bag and got a stuffed orange kitty back from him. When the reality hit, she started crying. But, she did it! She has even found some under beds and couches since then and takes them right to the trash.

Good for Abigail!!

Yea!!!! Go Abby! That's awesome. I remember when Isabel gave up hers. She got a mermaid doll for the bathtub from the "binky fairy". But it is great she did it on her own basically w/o you asking her to!

Annie said...

Erin said...

Go Abby..!! I am so excited for the big girl :)

Awesome! It's so much easier when they decide for themselves. We've done it both ways and I have to say that I recommend the "childs choice" route. :D Good job! :D
