Cutest thing ever
Ok, I'll come out and say it, I don't like dummies (the clue is in the name). Fanf and I agreed that we wouldn't dig our heels in if it turned out that our two elder minibeasts needed a dummy but we were mighty glad when they didn't. Neither of then sucked a thumb or finger either, and we were equally glad that we wouldn't have to face weaning from finger sucking. I gave up sucking my finger when I was about seven after a friend was given a ring by her parents for abandoning her soggy digit. Thinking she was on to a good thing I followed suit. My parents gave me a pat on the back. Sigh.
As for Nell, I feel like she's been searching out some fingers to suck ever since she was born and yesterday she found her thumb. Now although thumb sucking brings its own set of difficulties, I just happen to think it's impossibly cute.
And on the up side, she slept through last night for the first time, so hooray hooray for thumb sucking.
Also, I will now have a child to terrorise with the wonderfully macarbre tales of Struwwelpeter, specifically The Story of the Thumbsucker. Ah ha ha ha.
Thinks *I have maybe missed a trick here with my other minibeasts*
Note to self: read the story of Fidgety Philip to Matilda. Every night for a month.
