Sleeping Beauty wakes up...

SOAKED!

"Daddy, why wet?"
My ears perked up.
"Um...baby, I'm not sure. Nat, can you come help us?"
I put my brush on the bathroom counter and walked into M's room.
I was accosted by the smell of urine. Lots of urine. Where could that much urine come from?
"M, are your pajamas wet?" I asked.
H answered, "Soaked."
"Through her diaper?" I asked.
Deathly silence.
"Diaper? Oh, God. I forgot to put a diaper on her before bed last night!"

I laughed so hard. Super dad who NEVER makes a mistake (according to him) forgot to change M out of her underpants and into her diaper last night! She was soaked in urine. Her hair was wet, her pjs were wet, her bed was SOAKED. We had to strip her crib, wash everything in it. She had to have a bath, including a hair wash. There was much screaming about both of those things (me about the bed, M about the bath first thing in the morning!).

heee,heee,haaaa,haaaa,hoooo,hooo! What a laugh...sorry, M, that I found this so funny! "Why wet, daddy????" Oh, I love it when the husband makes a mistake- as least in THIS house- it so rarely happens that I practically CELEBRATE it! Is that wrong? If so, sorry H. Well, thanks for the laughter. Hope all goes well with Sleeping Beauty's mornings from now on! ;)

Nick has forgotten to have Zoe go potty before nap time (where she wears her underwear) but has not forgotten a night time pull-up (yet). I'm sure it'll happen soon enough. If he's lucky it will be on the 1 morning a week she manages to wake up dry!!!
