Jack's P

When Jack started school back in the fall, his teachers were not thrilled that he was still using a paci. It's not that we were bad parents and just didn't want to hear him scream (which would be reason enough for me to let him keep it) but he is very oral and has to always have something in his mouth - if it's not his paci, it's his hands and he will literally chew the skin off of his hands so we had doctor's telling us to keep the paci and therapists telling us to get rid of it - awesome! Our wonderful Occupational Therapist at Farmington Elementary suggested that we try the "P". It's literally a plastic P that is meant for chewing. Well we tried it for 6 months and he had no interest but one day he just decided to go for it and it hasn't left his mouth since - not even to sleep :)

this picture makes me smile every time I see it :)
