My kids are hilarious. To me. Our lives might be a bit more orderly if I didn't find them quite so funny. It's very hard to discipline a child when you can't stop laughing over the way that they just deviated from your instruction. One such moment happened last night. Warning - this has to do with bodily functions.
Bean still wears pullups to bed. She's only 3 so this isn't a big deal. What is a big deal is that she is keeping the pullups dry each night. I've promised her that when she stays dry for 7 nights in a row, she can go to bed in panties. Woohoo milestone! Double Woohoo no more buying $40 boxes of pullups!
Anyway, last night I put a waterproof sheet on Bean's bed, telling her it was in case she had an accident when she starts sleeping without her pullup. She doesn't question this or even get excited. I don't think again about it. Until five minutes after she's tucked in.
Bean: "Mommy, that new sheet you put on my bed doesn't work."
Me: "What do you mean it doesn't work?" as I head into her room thinking the sheet had gotten loose and was folded and uncomfortable or something.
Bean: "It doesn't dry up pee pee."
Me: "Did you pee in your pullup?"
Bean: "I had an accident. The sheet didn't dry it up."
Me: Shakes head in exasperation and wonders at my child's use of the scientific method.
