Rumble Rumble

Dane has been a thumbsucker since 3 months old. I'll never forget when he started, he was sucking so hard it woke Brad and I up in the middle of the night. Seemed like a blessing at first, he was self-soothing himself and I was able to sleep more. Shortly after that he started sleeping through the night. However, you can't lose the thumb and it seemed like a habit we'd never be able to break.

Around the time Dane turned 2 we started to paint his thumb with that nasty tasting stuff. Well, Brad did it, I knew it needed to be done, but I just couldn't do that to him. Anyways, it didn't work. He'd just sneak off later and go wash his hands and we'd find him sucking it later.

I've got some great news! 2 weeks ago Brad told Dane that if he wanted a Rumbling Seso (aka a 50cc fourwheeler) he would have to stop sucking his thumb........and it worked! He hasn't sucked his thumb since!!!!! However we weren't quite counting on it happening so fast but Brad's got to hold up his end of the bargain. So, We're in the market for a used 50cc fourwheeler. Preferably a 2007 or newer.

Anyone know where we can find one at an affordable price? Please let us know.
