As we've established, Hadley and Leila are both thumb suckers. It really doesn't bother me. I figure it's easier than a pacifier, and they'll outgrow it ... and if they don't ... well, I'm not thinking about that yet.
Like I said, it doesn't bother me. Except for one thing. Leila MUST be holding onto her right sleeve with her left hand in order to put her left thumb in her mouth. See what I mean?
It's very complicated. I have no idea how she decided that it was just the best thing ever. With spring in the air, and summer coming quickly, I have visions of cute sundresses ... not sweaters.
You might wonder why I give in to this weird habit. Believe me, I have tried not to encourage it. I dress her in short sleeves when it's warm out -- and she screams for 45 minutes when it's time to nap (which, you know, is the most important thumb-sucking time). At that point, I go in, put her in a sweater, she grabs her sleeve, sticks her thumb in her mouth, and falls fast asleep.
I've considered cutting the toe off a sock and sliding the sock onto her wrist ... but that's just weird ... right?
So, faithful blog readers, any ideas? Any weird habits that your kids have that you just give in to? Any words of wisdom that my child won't be wearing a sock on her arm to Kindergarten? :)
