Childhood is a series of milestones some big some small. Sunday was a big day. Dummy Deal day.
We struck a deal to chuck the last dummy in the bin and then go and buy a BIG RED TRUCK (shouted excitedly every time it was mentioned). Of course it took a couple of weeks to plant the seed, then a few days to iron out the details of the plan and then jump when the moment seemed right. We've had practice - son number one swapped his dummy for a Tonka truck at the same age.
Step one. Dummy in the bin.
I don't mind at all. $9.99 and another little baby step towards being a Really Big Boy.
Now I am just praying that there isn't a random dummy tucked away in a toybox... or rather praying that I find it first.
