My name is Evalyn.
And I am a recovering addict.
A recovering soosie accdict.
There was a day when I needed that soosie with me at all times or I would freak! out!
I used to want it while I was awake. And while I was sleeping. While I was being held. And while I was playing. I thought my life could not go on without my soosie.
Sometimes, I’d call my mommy into my room five or ten times a night just so she could put the soosie in my mouth so I could have my fix.
But, now, I am recovering.
I don’t need my soosie during the day while I’m awake anymore.
And, even better (for mama) I don’t sleep with it anymore, either.
I fall asleep on my own without it and I very rarely wake up during my naps or in the middle of the night asking for a soosie fix.
I still like my soosie when I’m in the car sometimes.
And when Mom’s wearing me.
But overall, I am recovering.
