Kathy - a Genius!

My mom is a genius. Have I ever mentioned that?? You would think I would just naturally default to this conclusion. . . I mean my brother is a genius, my sister is an incredibly smart cookie, and me. . . well my mom is also very social.

Anyway, at this juncture I am calling my mom a genius because she made the suggestion that we take Bubba to the bathroom one last time at night just before WE go to bed. Bubba has been staying dry at night for ages but wakes up at 5 or 5:30AM needing some relief. This has meant that he turns the lights on in the stairs (which wakes up Little), walks upstairs and stands beside my head until I wake up. . . or sits in the hall and wimpers. So, my genius mom suggests the "one last trip" and we have implemented this plan for three nights. Yesterday we ALL slept until 6:30AM - I can't remember the last time we ALL slept until 6:30 AM!!

If I was a genius, I would have thought of such a practical idea a long time ago. Thanks for the Brownie points, Honey. MM

We've been doing this very same thing for about 1-1/2 years now...and yet at least 50% of the time, our 6 year old will be somewhat wet when he wakes up in the morning!! Go figure. ;) But I am so not stressing about this. There are bigger things in life, right?!
