A little substory to the post I listed below -- before this blessed event, we discussed the binky fairy and the gifts she brings (aka princess dresses) for months. This spontaneous willingness to part with the binky came after our, and I'm not kidding, 217th trip down the princess dress-up aisle. On this trip we happened to spot just the right Ariel dress, I guess, as Katelin thought it over and an hour later, the whole ordeal began. So, yes the binky fairy pays well, just enough to buy your dream princess dress.
Interestingly, after several nights without "Binks", (this thing was named), Katelin has decided she's ready to give the dress back in exchange for the binkies, and she hasn't gone to bed without a lot of screaming once! Poor thing. She just lost a member of the family.
