Sweet Dreams


Trying to fall asleep while your sister is taking your picture

I could be a millionaire.
I could put Ferber and Weissbluth out of business.
There would be no such thing as a dropped binky and no need for a Pacifier Fairy.
If only I could patent my children's finger-sucking ear-tugging technique. 


Problem is, I had nothing to do with it. 
I can't train others. 
They were born this way. 

So, I'll save my pennies for orthodontia.
I've already found my riches anyway.

Awwwww. I don't get why they do that. But I'm not a baby so maybe that's why.

I find it fascinating that they've each picked the exact same 2 fingers on the same hand to suck on. Weird genetics at play?

Susan - I'm so glad you noticed that! That's what I find so amazing about it! Same fingers, and then same ear. (Although, you'll see from the vid that Georgia's technique is a little more intricate...it involves this crazy swiping motion...). I was a thumb sucker, so I don't know where this 2 finger thing came from - Joe says it wasn't him.

This is amazing.
