There are few things in this life that are as comforting and reassuring as “The Thumb.” And this magic gift does not seem to last very long when we are young. Studies show that most kids give this habit up by the age of four, naturally.
Our little angel, Megan, is only 1 & 2/3 years old, and still has not lost this magic.
But what if it never ended…. I know some older kids that still do it…. And a couple of adults… J Comfort comes in many forms. Some people rely on others…. Some on food…. Some on a bottle….. some on “The Thumb.”
In the big picture of things, we should be careful on the things we pick to comfort us. There is a fine line between “a temporary comfort in time of need”, and “a crutch that becomes a life long habitual impairment.”
