Do the right thing
Being a parent is sometimes excruciatingly hard, and I'm sure I haven't even been through the worst yet. But if there is way for Mira to go to sleep without struggle, I will do it. After 6 days of trying to trick and cajole her into being comfortable in her bed with no pacifier, she is peacefully and quietly sleeping with a brand new one in her mouth. Giving it back is better than the increasing level of anxiety she was having for nightnight time, and it bumps the sanity level back up a notch. I'm going to channel my mother in law on this one and repeat... she will not go to college with the thing. it is OK. it is OK.
