If you would ask Tylee, we had a pretty tramatic experience one day during the snow storm. No, we didn't get stuck in the snow, we didn't freeze, and we didn't run out of food - but her binky's did get thrown in the trash! She has only gotten binky's when she was in bed for 6+ months now (except on very rare occasions when I knew she would need a nap in the middle of an event - such as the Nebraska Game, in the car on the way to Christmas, ect) but has been pushing her luck a litte more and more, bringing them with her into the living room after nap or sneaking in there to get them when we weren't looking. I think we caught her in the living room with them 5 or 6 times over the course of the two days we were snowed in, so Tj took the bad rap and threw them away. It took her a little longer to fall asleep at nap-time that day, but once we made it past that hurdle - I knew it would be smooth sailing. Bedtime was a little more drawn out also but again, she finally fell asleep. Its been over a week now since they've been gone and we haven't had a single issue. She has barely even asked about them! Thank goodness, because I was really dreading this. Guess we should've bit the bullet a long time ago.
