the great mimi battle

8:45pm. Kaitlyn is in bed. Asleep. Without her mimi.

I don’t want to jinx it by even mentioning it. It wasn’t easy. I’ve just spent most of the last half an hour listening to her cry and beg for her mimi. I know this isn’t the best time to be doing this, with Bill gone. But there will never be a perfect time to do it. I thought if she could at least try… I told her I’d set her bed time timer. When it goes off, if she’s still awake, I’d get the mimi. It went off about two minutes after she fell sound asleep.

Now I just hope she can go all night without it. And I hope that she’ll be as excited in the morning when she realizes what she accomplished as I was when I realized she’d gone to sleep tonight.

    Her enthusiasm at throwing the mimi away when she announced she was five gives credence to how she will find satisfaction in not using it, somewhat like giving up smoking.

    Perhaps she could take up chewing tobacco as a substitute.
