My mom did everything she could to get me to stop sucking ny thumb when I was a kid. There were many nights of wearing socks on my hands while sleeping. I even had an orthodontic fork put in my mouth to deter me. One of my favorite memories of my grandpa was when he would always ask me what flavor my thumb was. I would always answer strawberry.

Mia is definitely following suit in the thumb sucking category. The funny thing is that I am actually relieved when she finds her thumb a a way to soothe herself. Looks like we will be seeing some orthodontic bills in our future.
