No More Binkie! Day 1

I decided today is the day!  Today we start no more binkie!  I've been thinking it is time to get Chaeli off of her binkie for a while, but knowing what I am getting into with her teething on top of the whining that will go on for a few days I just haven't felt up to it.  I decided today is the day.  It's not going to get any easier!  

So far it hasn't been to... bad  She fussed some but I kept crackers handy and tried to keep her busy and distracted.  Nap was a little bit hard.  She cried, but she did fall asleep after a little bit.  Daddy went and snuggled her for a minute since I was in the middle of lunch with the other kiddos.  She loves to get Daddy snuggles!  :-)  

What do you think?  I know there are lots of opinions on if kiddos should have a binkie or not.  My oldest had a binkie for a short while, but changed over to sucking his fingers early on. (BTW it's much easier to take away a binkie than sucking fingers in my opinion!)  My second had a binkie but we weaned him off of it easily pretty early.  Mrs. Chaeli just loves her binkie!  I just don't want her to turn out like her Mamma and almost go to Kindergarten with it! LOL
