Now that Wesley has been taking his medicine for a few days we have a bit of cleaning house to do. We have to toss his toothbrush and pacifier. I’m wishing now it wasn’t our habit at bedtime to brush Wesley’s teeth and then have him “brush” ours. I know it is a little germy, but it helps get us through our bedtime routine. The doctor thinks we should just take this opportunity to get rid of his pacifier all together. But Wesley has had Poochie (the little dog we clip to his pacifier) for forever. He is very attached and would give up his bed, blanket and pillows to keep Poochie at bedtime. And as much as I’d like to be done with pacifiers the timing is just a little too Velveteen Rabbit for me.
