No more thumb sucking!

Shawn and I were at our wits end with Celeste. We had tried several times to get her to stop sucking her thumb at night, but nothing was working. We taped gloves to her hand, put band aids on her thumb, dipped her thumb in vinegar, and none of these were putting an end to this bad habit. Then Shawn had an idea! We showed her pictures of people who had sucked their thumb and ruined their teeth. Shawn told her that if she kept up with this habit her teeth could end up looking like this. She had the most horrified look on her face. That night she stopped sucking her thumb, and its been thee weeks! She's asked me a few times since then "How do my teeth look mom?". Haha
