Note to my boys: Use the bathroom at night, too!

When I checked on the boys tonight, I discovered that Thomas forgot to use the bathroom. I had planned to take Thomas to the bathroom. He was soaked. He was sound asleep. I went and got Seth to help me: I figured I would redress Thomas and comfort him while Seth changed the sheets. As I was working on comforting Thomas (he did not want to give up his soaked Thomas the Train PJs), Seth tells me his bed is dry. My first thought: "How is that possible?" My second thought: "Uh Oh." Sure enough, as I walked back in his room, I stepped on cold, squishy carpet (yuck). Thomas must have gotten up, walked to the door of his room, peed and then gotten back in bed. I am not sure if it is good or bad that he forgot to pull down his pants before he peed. Obviously, he has not mastered the art of "sleep peeing" yet like his big brother Jonathan (see sleep peeing and bath toys).

Oh no! Poor mommy! My brother used to do that, my mom would find him peeing in the hall closet. She had been wondering why the hall closet smelled like pee until she caught him doing it one night.

Just think - Elsie won't do that!!!!

Kim- no. Elsie will get up in the middle of the night and sit on the toilet with her pants still on.

And Jessica- I may have to talk to Bill :)
