These girls are like Hoover vacuums when it comes to their thumbs. They found their hands awhile ago, but finally mastered the whole thumb-in-the-mouth thing last week. They are like addicts looking for their fix. Once they get the thumb in there, everything is right in their world again.
It makes me a little nervous. What if they are 14, having sleepovers and still sucking their thumbs? What's a mom to do?
I can't take their thumbs away. Not that I really want to. It soothes them, and who doesn't want that for their little one?
So, we'll just go on sucking. And hopefully, someday — preferably before they are 14 and need an intervention — they will choose to stop.
