So Jason and I started talking to Heidi about giving her "pacy" (pacifier) to the baby before Rachel was born. We mentioned how babies use pacys and that big girls don't need them. Since Rachel's birth, giving her pacifier to Rachel has come up a few times and she has always said "in a little bit."
Well, on October 22 (2 days before she turned 3) at bed time, it came up again. Now she decided that Rachel was too small for her pacy, but that she could give it to cousin Becca (who is 3 1/2 months older than Rachel). We asked if she wanted to mail it to Becca and she said yes. So we talked about finding a box the next day and mailing it to Becca.
Jason happened to receive a package the next day - in a box. Heidi took the box from Jason and went upstairs, got her pacy and put it in the box. Then she asked me for tape to close the box. We closed it up and she and Jason walked it to the mailbox and put the flag up. :-)
She hasn't mentioned it any night going to bed. However, it was a bit of an issue when she woken up during the night and at nap time for a few days. But I think we are over the hump and the "pacy" is gone. :-)
I actually did mail it to Becca today - that way no one has to lie later. ;-) 'Cause I'm guessing Heidi will ask Becca or Aunt Kirsten about it the next time we see them - even if it's not 'til Christmas!
