The last time I wrote about The Dummy Diaries, I had planned that by Easter Sunday, all would be well and bye bye dum dum.
Well, it didn’t happen.
A few weeks on and still the dummy is a permanent fixture in Emily’s mouth.
I’m not impressed with myself.
Maybe I should have pressed the idea harder, but it didn’t happen.
So whilst I would’ve liked it to be dummy no more, the dummy is still here.
Why, you ask.
Well, it’s quite simple. I’m going to blame night terrors. Those few weeks before Easter Sunday were hell and no one could figure out why her night terrors were so bad. But after much deliberation, we removed the sides to her cot and transformed it from cot to bed and she seems more settled.
Well, for now at least.
So yes, The Dummy Diaries will aim for a take 2 moment soon, but not now.
One step at a time.
