HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT

ok, Matthew has never, ever had a dry night. EVER. So once abbie got bigger he would just wear one of her diapers to bed. Well, about a week and a half ago i decided to buy Matthew his very own Goodnights pull ups because he would pee so much that abbies diaper didn't always hold it all. Well, he was so excited and thought they were just great. Then about 4 or 5 days ago he said he didn't want to sleep with a pull up, that he was a big boy. So i explained to him that if he didn't have one on he'd pee in his sleep and be wet. He wasn't happy, but he kept wearing them. WELL, last night he said NO, he was a big boy and didn't need them. So i agreed. He had to go pee right then and he could sleep in underwear. we went to bed and i didnt put anything under him because i didn't want him to think i didn't believe in him. So I snuck a towel and stuck it inbetween him and i. (lol, i didnt want to get wet) I just figured I'd be washing sheets in the AM. I slept like crap and kept waking up to feel if he was wet and every time he was dry! He went all night without wetting the bed. The weird thing is when he'd wear a diaper/pullup to bed I'd check in the middle of the night to see if there was pee in it and making sure it wasn't wet in the AM because he was maybe doing his morning pee in it. It was always wet throught the night and he would take it off and then go pee in the toilet first thing in the morning. It's like his bladder matured over night. The funny thing is he is literally the same age as kaitlen when she stopped night wetting. Kaitlen was Aug 07 and her 5th bday was Oct, and Matthew will be 5 in July.

Now to get Abigail out of diapers....

Whoo hoo! We get Logan "up" before we go to bed. He's been in undies since right around 24 months. Back when I had a sewing machine I had made him a blanket with paw prints on it. He called it Woof (his fav cuddle bud) Clues. It was double thick with batting, and that is underneath him just in case he wets. Only about 5 times in 3 years, but I know how you feel about the towel thing! Gooooo Matthew!!!!
