Scarlett announced today that she would like to give up her dummies for the “babies” (not sure which babies)?
Scarlett gathered all her precious dummies (5 I think) and took them to the back of the garden to hang on a tree with the promise that the dummy fairy, below I assume, will come collect them and leave a gift in appreciation of her generosity.
I think that’s a terrible idea.
Firstly, the dummy comes with no cost whatsoever, well, unless you lose them, leave home without one and need her to sleep in the car, or, if it drops down the back of her bed in the middle of the night and you do that sweeping thing on the dusty floor with your hand or peer into the darkness hoping that the supposed luminescence will make the lost soother magically appear… other than those minor issues, the dummy brings only goodness, peace and quiet.
I have not yet seen a dummy wielding 5 year old and I think buck teeth come only from thumb sucking so there’s another good reason to keep them. No, the dummies are going nowhere if I can help it, and I will be out with a bat at the first sight of a dummy fairy! I’ll let you know tomorrow how it goes.
