Bella the Bunny

This is Bella.
She is a bunny that belongs to my little Princess.

Flashback one year ago:
The Princess has just turned three years old and still takes the pacifier.
She was the type of child that never really cared for the pacifier, until she was about 2 ½.
From there, she became attached!
I tried to take it away several times, but never had the will power to follow through.
Especially at night time when I all wanted to was to crawl into bed and drift off to sleep.
She would start crying for it, and I would give in.
 

My mother had an idea for the Princess to leave her pacifiers for the Easter Bunny.
The Easter Bunny would come and take the pacifiers for her baby bunnies.
Brilliant.
The Princess loved the idea and was more than happy to give her pacifiers to the baby bunnies!  

The night before Easter Sunday, the Princess and I placed the pacifiers outside.
Come morning time, the pacifiers were gone.

I tossed all but one of the pacifiers. 

Later that week, we took the Princess to Build A Bear,
and that is when Bella became a part of our family.
When you squeeze Bella’s hand you will fill the pacifier!


Silly? Maybe.
But she loves that bunny!

My mom told me that my pacifier went to visit Santa Claus. Apparently I bought into it and only asked about it once more saying something like "I wonder if Nukkie has found Santa yet to tell him what I want for Christmas."

Then I never asked again.

Kids are dumb! BWAHAHAHA!!!

Hi Kendra

That sounds like a sure fire way to get rid of the pacifier. Very clever and I like the fact that it doesn't sound traumatic for those involved.

Love

kendra,
not silly at all... that's one of the sweetest ideas ever!!! the easter bunny took katherine's night bottle for the baby bunnies when she was three. but i don't think build a bear (had it existed at that point) would have had a bunny big enough for the NIGHT BOTTLE, ha!!!
have a great wednesday!!!
love and hugs,
dani xx

That is such a great idea!

My brother was addicted to his pacifier and my parents threw it out the car window (don't know if the "really" did). But he didn't ask for it after that. Funny...

Have a great day!

Oh -- that is so sweet! My son has blue blanket that he takes everywhere (ala Linus) and it is precious cargo. If we ever lost the blanket -- oh, I shudder to think about it! :)
