Last Wednesday evening, my husband was putting Little Miss to bed while I was working with Mister Man. I found out then that she was out of Pull-Ups. Ummm, what?
It was 6:30 at night and time for her bed. No one had bothered to mention the dearth of Pull-Ups until that point. Costco had a sale on Pull-Ups starting the next day. Thursday mornings are sheet changing days in my house.
I decided to try one more time to see if she was ready to stay dry overnight, knowing that I had a plastic mat under her sheets just in case. I explained to her what we were doing, and she repeated after me, “Body. Hey! Body! Listen up. I’m going without a Pull-Up tonight. You need to wake me up if you have to go p0tty. Got it? You’d better!” We were as set as we were going to be.
I woke her up for a p0tty run when I went to bed, and she went.
The next morning, her bed was wet. I commiserated with her a bit and asked what happened. Did you wake up all wet this morning?
Ummmm you got wet after you woke up?
Yes. I woke up this morning, and I had to go p0tty and I forgot I wasn’t wearing a Pull-Up anymore.
Ummm what? Wait, you mean to tell me that you stayed dry all night long, only to wake up in the morning and wet your bed simply because you were too lazy to walk down the hall to the bathroom? Are you kidding me?
There are no more Pull-Ups.
Or there weren’t. After our little discussion, she was dry on Thursday night. And on Friday night. And on Saturday night. Since then, she’s wet her bed once or more a night every night, even with both my husband and I waking her in the middle of the night. So yeah, when I went to Costco today, I bought more Pull-Ups.
