Celebrating Brayden’s Decision

Last Friday, it is unknown what provoked it, Brayden stated that, “Today is the day I am going to stop sucking my fingers.”  Of course, we all grinned and gave him a pat on the back.  Brayden has sucked two fingers his whole life.  As parents, we have not known what to do to get him to break this habit.  We didn’t know how old he would be when he finally gave it up.  I was hoping it would be before he left for college.  🙂 It just seemed unattainable.  Ever feel that way with parenting?  So as you can imagine after his proclamation, we were not thinking he was serious.

He has totally stuck to his word!  So, we set a date and threw him a party.  If there were ever something to be celebrated, I do believe this qualifies!  Monday night was all about Brady.  There were balloons, his favorite foods, cupcakes, and special words given to him from each of us.

So, Brayden moves on to the next chapter in his life.  As we like to quote from the movie Up, “Adventure is out there . . .”
