Eternal Sunshine

How optimistic am I? Well…

Every other morning Sam, completely potty trained during the day, wakes up soaking wet. (Doggone it! Won’t someone invent a pull-up for boys who like to sleep with their bottoms stuck up in the air?) And every other day, I pull all the pillows, sheets, animals, toys, books and blankets off the bed, throw the wet items in the washer and then make the bed again. Animals in place just so. Basket of books at the foot. Pillows just right. Everything ready for another night and my fingers crossed. Ah, the audacity of hope!

It is getting a little old though. So, tips, advice, and suggestions are welcomed!

Now, a little eye candy, because I can’t stand the thought of posting without just a taste!

Okay, this is what I used to do. I made the bed this way, from the mattress up: waterproof mattress cover, sheet, waterproof mattress cover, sheet So, that way I could just whip off the top sheet and mattress cover and the bed was already made. It saved me one bed making per wetting.

As far as helping him not wet, I limited liquids 2 hours before bed and crossed my fingers. Sometimes, I would wake them up to pee before I went to bed at night. It's just something his body will kick in to master.
