Thumb War

One. Two. Three. Four.
I declare a THUMB WAR!

Claire vs. Mommy

Claire is 7 months old. She REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wants to be a thumb sucker.
But, *I* don't want her to be a thumb sucker. Maybe because my mom told me she sucked her thumb until she was in kindergarten & that thought has traumatized me.
I gladly give her the pacifier. My thought is that you can take the pacifier away, but you can't take away the thumb. I don't want her sucking her thumb until she is 5 years old. (the germs! ack!)
Kate was never interested in her thumb. She sometimes took a pacifier until she was a year old & then I threw them all away.

Claire is perfectly happy with her pacifier, but every once in awhile I see her sneak her thumb & I promptly replace it with the pacifier. I am such a mean Mommy.

I have a feeling this battle is not over yet.
Wish me luck.


  1. good luck. I am with you on all of it. So far we have been lucky enough to be a pacifier family. But then it falls on the DMV floor... even though it is my 3rd kid I still clean it. I am such a good Mom.

  2. Bella still sucks her thumb when she sleeps...there really is no way to keep her from it. I hope you win the thumb war early on!! LOL She is the only one. Aidan used a pacifier until he was 2 and Cara's had to be taken right after she turned one, along with all her bottles, because of recurring ear infections.

  3. Thank you Thank You Very much Doctor Otonokpo for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am Cordelia Sandra from Brazil and i am putting this testimony here too because i want to share my testimony of how i was helped by Doctor Otonokpo within 48 hours of contacting him. Yes, it was last week my ex boyfriend returned to me after i contacted Doctor Otonokpo. My boyfriend was always going back to meet his ex girlfriend because he never really left her. Her name was Sophie. I didn't know how it happened one day after breakfast that i saw him looking at his ex girlfriend's picture on Facebook and I flared at him that he doesn't care about him and he was with me and still thinking about his ex although we have been dating for 6 months. He stormed at me and left the house and never returned. I was heartbroken and wanted him to come back. I was in a nightclub with friend one evening that I saw him with Sophie there, I was humiliated that night and I regretted going there only to see him there. I went online after some days and found Doctor Otonokpo and read about him and I contacted him to help me get him back. I must say that within 48 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and pleaded for leaving me. Is this how spell works so fast? Please, if you want help, contact Doctor Otonokpo too to help you at otonokpotemple@gmail.com
