Words Wednesday because Words are needed for this picture...

OPERATION NO MORE BINKIE (during awake hours) ;)

This is my almost 2 1/2 year old daughter.  She still uses the binkie all the time!  It is my fault!  When it is out of sight, she never thinks about it but I always give it to her anyway thinking she NEEDS it.  I use it to soothe her or to pacifier her or really for anything.  Shame on me!!  Well, this is the countdown to binkie only at night.  In 2 weeks, when she turns exactly 2 1/2, I will give it to her only at naps and bedtime.

I think she will do fine but it is a bad habit for me as well, that I need to break.  She doesn't NEED it!  I NEED it!  I will still carry it in my bag "just in case".

I am starting in 2 weeks because I just don't have the patience right now with the heat, packing up the house, looking for a house, selling our house, blah, blah, blah... And I am keeping it at naps and bedtime because so much is going on right now, I want her to at least sleep well.

Any advice or words of wisdom, I am all ears:)

Getting our house ready to sell!!

Sorry I have been MIA for a few weeks but we have decided to get our house ready to sell!!  We have lived here for 6 years and we love it but we are maxed out!!  We want to move into a bigger house and our "forever" house but I am completely overwhelmed.  We need to do some things to get the house ready like power wash the house, get the carpets cleaned and little odds and ends.  Not to mention we just had to rent a storage unit to clear the house out of clutter.  My mind is going crazy thinking about it all.  And then I think, how long will it take to sell??  I hope not too long.  I hope people like it.  I wish we could be out by September so my son could start Kindergarten in his new school district but that won't happen.

Then I start thinking about him making all new friends this year and then having to move him and he has to start all over again.  I guess it is good he is still young.  I pray it all works out.  My daughter is only 2 so it won't really bother her that much.

So next week, we will be gathering boxes and starting to clear the house out.  Then clean it up and put it on the market. I am excited and nervous all in one.

Here we go...  Wish us luck:)
