Day 6: The uphill journey

Day 6: The uphill journey

This photo captures Meg’s sheer delight in conquering the “uphill journey” at a park tonight. There is a backstory. Today marked her fourth day without a pacifier–this has been a huge accomplishment for her. I’ve been so impressed at how hard she has worked to break the habit and have witnessed her grief, frustration, and pride in the process. Tonight, I broke down and let her have it back. My rationale–there’s a fine line between a positive uphill experience and a negative one. I’m attempting the difficult task in helping to foster a positive one for Meg. I trusted my gut and gave in. Hopefully I didn’t screw up too badly.
