That Time We Bought Superheroes with Pacis

If you've been around here for the last 3 years, you know that Griffin was very attached to his paci. I mean, it was attached to him on the beach. For the longest time it was with him at ALL times. He used to sleep with about 10 in his crib because heaven forbid he lose one in the middle of the night.  Just last spring, at over 2.5 years old, we finally cut the habit down to bed & car. Griff was no longer allowed to have a paci in his mouth at all times & even that transition was rough! We heard a lot of "I tired. I wanna get in my bed with my paci!"
Earlier this summer the pacis started dwindling. Sometimes he bit them & they had to be tossed, sometimes I found gross ones & tossed them, and I'm sure we lost some in the move. I knew our stash was shrinking & I was definitely not buying more. We told Griff that when he was ready, we could take all his pacis to Toys R Us and he could use them to buy a new big boy toy. He talked about it some & would tell me what he would pick out......but he wasn't quite ready.
 
Then Thursday night happened. Griffin declared that IT WAS TIME. He told us that on Friday he would go to Toys R Us ad trade in all his pacis for a toy. I was skeptical. But, sure enough, he helped me gather them on Friday morning and before our trip to the dentist, we made a pit stop. Griffin proudly held his pacis in a little bag & carefully walked up and down the aisles. He stopped on the superhero aisle (of course) and picked out a new 3 pack of Iron Man guys. I really thought he would change his mind, but he didn't! He marched up to the counter, handed the guy his pacis, got a fist pump from the nice employee, & was SO SUPER EXCITED about his new superhero guys.
That is, until nap time.
I'll just say that I sent many SOS text messages to my husband that afternoon, my ears were nearly bleeding from the screaming, and I stopped for a bottle of wine on our way home from a fall festival that night.
 
BUT HE DID IT. We made it over the hump of a really hard first day, kind of hard second day, & now I feel like it is smooth sailing. My sweet baby boy who had the signature paci face for so long no longer has any pacis. Griffin is so proud of himself & how big he is.I'm proud too, because honestly? I kinda thought he may go to college with those pacis.
 
and that's the story of how we bought some new superheroes with a Ziploc full of old pacis.
