A Thumb Sucker No More

Cate has sucked her thumb since she was about 7 months old.  Because of this, I’ve never been able to paint her thumb nail when she gets her nails painted.  We’ve told her all year that when she turns 5, she’ll need to stop.  Sure enough, the day after her 5th birthday, she stopped.  No big deal, no complaining, no fuss.  🙂  So, as her reward, she got to go and get a real manicure!…painted thumb and all!

If you know this girly-girl, you know this was the perfect reward for her! She LOVED it!!

Jula - this is just precious. Love that you encourage her to be all girly, but still a rockstar, AND you even have a dino bin. Really, you just encourage her to be Cate….a girl I’m pleased and blessed to watch grow!!
