Audrey is slowly learning how to appreciate the art of coloring…. I can’t believe she’s old enough for this.
We are also in the process of trying to break her thumb sucking habit. We decided to try the “sock route” so far it’s kind of working. She doesn’t take the sock off, but when it’s off (when it gets too wet or dirty we will take it off) she easily reverts to sucking her thumb. And I’m not talking the “occasional” thumb suck. She’s a compulsive thumb sucker and it’s already starting to effect her teeth --- it was time to do something.
Though it was a surprisingly tough decision, because as much as I didn’t want her to be a 6 year old thumb sucker, I also think it’s kind of cute.
She does pretty well with it, considering. She actually willingly comes over and lifts up her hand for us to put the sock on and sometimes she even smiles and laughs about it.
If we catch her sucking her thumb (without the sock) we tell her “No, Audrey, take out your thumb.” and we make the motion, and she takes her thumb out, smiles and goes “Ahhhhhhhhh!”
