Maeve wasn't really psyched about giving up the thumb, but with a little sugar motivation, I'm hoping this will go okay. I never had to bribe her for potty training, so this is a new arena for me. Maeve will get a lollipop everyday during this new transition... lollipops are like crack to her, so I'm hoping its enough. I applied a touch of mavala stop on her thumb nail and we're now 5 hours in. There was been some drooling, spitting, and 'owie...owie' (aka ewwww...), but overall she's doing well. Her major temper tantrum at the playground earlier today was coincidental, I'm hoping. However, I am anticipating some restless sleep over the next couple of weeks (she sucks her thumb in her sleep)... but, between me being sleep deprived anyway (my latest late night addiction are the Hunger Game series), and the sun waking up a little person earlier than normal, I figure now is the time to get this done.
