I know this will come as a surpise to many... but the one thing I HATE more than laundry... is laundry that smells like urine!
Last night, I (as well as my husband) tossed and turned and finally fell asleep around mid-night. Well, about 12:30, MK decides to thrash around in her bed thunking her head against the wall. My husband gets up to find her room overcome with urine odor.
Once again, MK had wet her pull-up, in turn, it leaked onto her bed. This happens most nights these days. Even though she went for over a month without wetting back around January.
He sent her to the bath, at this point I am wide awake and "PISSED" OFF!
I finally enter the bathroom and tell her to hurry up bathing so that she can get back to bed. Then I told her, there was just no way she didn't know she was soaking wet with pee. Her bed was damp, so I knew it had been hours since she wet herself. I get wetting from a bad dream, what I don't get is laying and sleeping in it.
I then told her, "There just isn't a way for you to make me believe that you weren't just being lazy and deciding to lay in your own urine!"
Then, get this, SHE ADMITTED to just being lazy. She said she does that a lot... as in wets herself and sleeps in it... ON PURPOSE!
I was so over it. I explained (with tears) that laudry is a lot of work. Missing sleep makes me feel grumpy. I just don't get it.
So at the end of this, I told her no more pullups. She uses them as an excuse to be lazy and it is beyond disgusting. I did my best not to shame her, but in my half-wakened state, I was beyond angry.
Since I have to wash the sheets whether or not she is in a pull-up, I am taking the pull-up away.
