Binky Fairy

Last week our home was visited by the Binky Fairy and she was nice enough to bring Hailey the camera that she has wanted for a LONG time.
Monday of last week she told me that the Binky Fairy was coming that night and was going to bring her camera. We had discussed that soon this would be happening, but since she was so insistent that it be that night, I said OK and figured I had better seize the moment. Of course, I didn't have the camera, and I had to call Cameron and tell him to pick up one on the way home. He got this one...

It is a piece of S**T!! Do not ever buy the Crayola camera!!! It broke within a day, so the Binky Fairy (me) had to scour Target, Walmart, and Kmart to find this one...

It is wonderful and I highly recommend it. It was a bit pricier, but worth it. We explained to Hailey that Mommy called the Binky Fairy and informed her of the broken camera and it was replaced while she was sleeping. This is Hailey reading the instructions to her new "Big Girl" present.

By the way, she only cried a little bit the first night and after she realized that she was actually going to get a camera, she hasn't cared about binks for one second and will proudly proclaim to anyone who asks (or doesn't) "I got a camera! The Binky Fairy brought me that! I am a big girl!" I am so proud and sad. I will miss my baby Hailey. Next step the big girl bed, and that will be in April, so at least I have some time to recover.

PS Happy Birthday Jonathan's Mommy!!!!!!! Twelve years ago you invited me to a birthday party and ever since I have been blessed to have first you, then Bryan and finally Jonathan as part of my life. I love you!!!!!!!!!! Wish her a Happy Birthday, because this is a big one ;)

Thank you for the birthday wishes! I am so blessed to have you and your family in my life as well! I cannot imagine what I would have done these last 12 years without you!

I've heard good things about that VTech camera! I am so proud of Hailey for giving up the binks! Sounds like it was pretty painless! I was sad when Jonathan gave up his recently and I am happy to see that I was not alone!

Yay, for the Binky Fairy! That's a great idea! I'll have to check that toy camera out!

Ok, do NOT tell Emma that you're supposed to get a present for giving up the binkie. She'll want one with interest since we took them away at her 2nd birthday!!!!!!
