"One night Mom sat on my bed for a long talk about sucking thumbs. We talked about sleep-overs, I didn't want anyone to know I still sucked my thumb, but I did want to go to my friend's house for an overnight. So I decided. Time to stop!"
"We taped the socks around my wrists so I wouldn't pull them off while I was sleeping. I reminded Dad every night to help me put on the socks. I kept the tape next to my bed so we wouldn't forget. The socks made my hands sweaty, but they did keep my thumbs out of my mouth. And in the morning if I still had the socks on my hands, I knew I had made it the whole night, No Thumbs."
