    I put together a collage of the Family Monsters for mother in law this year. Here's one of my favourites.

    Clockwise from bottom left:

    Little easy child
    Step-D and her boyfriend in the middle

    They keep me awake at night and cause my head to explode regularly, but I love them all more than life itself.

    Merry Christmas everyone

    Oh Janet, I know. Those soothers are the bane of my existence, but my little Aspie Tyrannosaur has a major sensory issue AND mega-anxiety when the need isn't met. I'm trying desperately to find a substitute that's more age-appropriate. No luck so far. I think we're going to have to bite the bullet and go cold-turkey with it very soon.

    I got through 3 boys, Keyana never took one, Hailie never let go of her mothers breast long enough to use one, I think they gave Mikey one when I wasnt around but never around me and now...McKenzie is a binky baby...Sigh. Oh well...I will snatch it before she is a year and I will have her off that bottle by the time she is 10 months. I had Keyana on the cup at 8 months. They just got Mikey on the cup at 2 years old. I was flabbergasted.

    Too young for the other alternative that someone else mentioned a while back... but keep it in mind: a sports mouth-guard... which can be chewed on, but is more socially acceptable. It means a switch from sucking to chewing, but if the need is just oral stimulant it might help... IF they make them that small!

    What a beautiful family!!!

    The pics with the toddlers playing the piano standing on tiptoes brings back memories. I esp chuckled at the one with the little one reaching out to the priest. That is cute! Thanks for sharing!

    What adorable and happy looking children.

    Perhaps a speech therapist can give you some advice on a better way to handle Tyrannosaur's oral stimulant needs than the Binky. I remember my mother in law's former neighbor's son still used one at age 5. My D, who was 3 years younger, once said to him: "Why do you pretend to be a baby? I can't see your handsome face." We never saw him with the binky again AND I learned never to talk about the neighbor kid with my mother in law again because I had been the one who had initially said that he was so handsome but it was hard to see with the binky stuck in his mouth!
