Operation Robot Hands

Perhaps you'll remember the gloved crusaders.
Two weeks of gloves and Munchkin had stopped sucking her thumb (and Thumbelina had gone from two fingers to just her thumb.) Fast forward 8 months. Munchkin sees Tumbelina sucking her thumb (all. the. time.) and decides it may be worth another shot.

See my head explode.

Two months later, Thumbelina decided that the cracked skin on her hand from all the sucking may not be worth it and stops. ON HER OWN!!!

Munchkin, on the other hand, is hooked. Either hand works for her. She doesn't discriminate. So I figured we have a couple of months before the baby comes while it's still cold/cool outside and wearing gloves wouldn't be considered torture. The last time I tried gloves on her (right after she started sucking again) she ripped off every piece of tape I put on. We used packing tape last time so it wouldn't be so glaringly obvious that I am taping up my children, but this time, I pulled out the big guns.

And thus begins Operation Robot Hands

Oh my GOSH! What a great laugh! I LOVE it!! Honestly. My parents taped up my sister's hands. My boy stopped sucking his thumb after breaking his arm, couldn't reach it anymore! Thanks for the visual! Priceless!
