habits are hard to break
addictions, even harder
my muffy has had a bad habit, er, addiction
to her "passy" since birth.
it has soothed her, helped her sleep
and generally kept her happy.
she even gave it up a couple years ago --
(amongst lots of tears and sleepless nights)
the passy fairy came and left her a big-girl gift (princess walkie talkies!)
and she spent a few years without them.
then, we found one...
and she wanted to try it, you know, just to see if she still liked it,
and sure enough, she did!
i tried to let her keep it for her dollies,
but when i caught her with it, it was just too much.
so once again, i summoned the passy fairy, who left a very stern note this time.
these are the last two i have, hidden in my desk drawer at work
they're away from her, but a reminder of my baby to me.
who knew a binky would cause so many tears?
