Charlotte has taken up a habit of mine from when I was a kid.
Sucking her thumb.
This doesn't bother me one bit. It shows she has a way to comfort herself. I know people can say "Oh it's gross" or "It'll ruin her teeth" but I say psshhhh to all of that. I started sucking my thumb when my dad deployed for the millionth time when I was 2. It's how I dealt with him being gone. The teeth that could possibly be messed with were baby teeth, I'd loose those anyway. By the time I had all my permanent teeth I had cut the habit, and my mouth is fine. I have perfect teeth, and have never had braces. So whatevs Academy of Pediatrics. I won't follow your guidelines on this one. Miss Charlotte will be fine. I don't think this will be a problem. I'll probably eat my words later, but I'm optimistic for now :)
