As some of you may know, Jayne is a constant thumb sucker. If she is happy, sad, tired, bored, thinking, whatever....she is sucking her thumb. So yesterday while having a quiet moment on the couch....we had a conversation that went like this:
Me: "Jayne? When are you going to stop sucking your thumb?"
Jayne: (heavy, long sigh) "Mom can I tell you the truth?"
Me: "Of course you can tell me the truth. I hope you will always tell me the truth."
Jayne: (Looking straight into my eyes) "Mom.... (long pause)...... I am a wizard." "And wizards HAVE to have braces."
Me: (trying to keep a straight face and keep the same serious mood that is in the air) "Okay.But I think even wizards stop sucking their thumbs." (I really can't remember what I said after her comment....I was just thinking....I have got to write this one down.... don't laugh. Don't laugh.)
So if any of you know how wizards stop sucking their thumbs.....I am all ears. She will be 5 on Sunday. The only thing that gives me hope is that I have never seen a 16 year old sucking her thumb.
