Ryan and I knew this day was coming for quite sometime, but after Camryn turned 3 we knew it was time to pull the trigger. We knew it was going to have to be something major and leave it to Ryan to come up with the perfect plan. And after a LOT of talking about it we made a family night date of it and headed to the Disney Store. Ryan talked to one of the employees about our plan, while Camryn and I shopped for the perfect prize.
She had already decided on a Snow White doll since that is what she would be for Halloween. And the Rapuntzel was additional so she could have something to sleep instead of her beloved binkies.
When she was already the employee played up the paying with binkies perfectly. The one time we actually appreciated the cheesiness of their employees. She had the perfect amount to buy the dolls-7 binkies (we scoured the whole house to make sure we got them all).
Don't worry that both Ryan and I got a little choked up for her. But she was so proud of herself and was so excited about her purchases-we have never bought anything from the Disney Store before.
We celebrated with her favorite Panda Express or Panda Eat Eat as she still calls it. And thankfully has not asked for it once ever since. She knows where they went and is so excited to be a big girl. Sleep on the other hand is not a fun. No more naps unless in the carand the number of times she is awake in the middle of the night has greatly increased. Success I would say-but it is still a rough for both parties. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will start to see even more progress!
