Okay.. I am at my wits end. I need advice on stopping a finger sucker.
Miss Roxy is now the ripe age of 4, and since she was a baby she always sucked on her first two fingers of her left hand. Well.... It caused her fingers to grow um... in the ET way. The first two stick out one way while the others go straight. Not but a huge noticeable amount, but you could tell if I told you to look and showed you what I meant. Either way... We have been trying desperately to get her to stop, you name it we have tried it to get her to stop- But she only does it when she is sleeping. So usually- she sneaks them in when we are asleep and we dont catch her.
Well, today the girls wanted their nails painted and the whole lip gloss and hair deal again today. And I noticed while painting Roxy's nails that she has sucked her fingers so much that the bottom of her nail is very weak. Its like she is wearing the enamel of the nail away. And in the middle of her nail (this is the first finger btw) she has yet another spot that is super weak. It looks like a nail growing under a nail. I hope that makes sense. So I told Joe that it was going to come off. You could just tell, that look like when you have seriously smashed your finger and the nail comes off- Like that without the bruising.
Sure enough, later this afternoon she was horsing around and snagged that top part and it ripped midway. I had to tackle her down in order to get some doctoring done to it. But there has to be a way to get her to stop this sleeping habit. I mean I have never known a child that has sucked their thumb so much that their nails come off.... (I guess I should explain that the main reason she is wearing the enamel is because she puts her fingers in her mouth upside down- So the base of her nail is pretty much as good as resting on her bottom teeth.) So any advice?? I am up for anything that worked on your thumb suckers!
Okay enough of that.. and on to the goodies :) I actually got up super early this morning for some reason and had a good bit of quite time to work on the kit- And got it finished :) YEAH!!! So I will give you another part of Wall Flower today :) Enjoy
