How Wylet Kicked Her Habit

I've been meaning to tell you how we got Violet to quit her binky cold turkey. At first it was all Brokeback Mountain up in here with our gal, Wylet, screaming "Binky, I just can't quit you" but I tell you what... The child is pretty much binky-less these days. And I'm not entirely pleased about it.
Her kiki comforted me as much as her. Once chubby, unsure legs are long and strong, wispy hair now thick and curly, but somehow, as long as she sucked on that binky she was still my baby girl.
It's what I babbled about last week and forgot to tell you about.
