Family time/ the pee bandit
We did our normal routine of teeth brushing, potty, and a bed time book. I figured that Andrew might be a little extra cranky/screamy for a few minutes but that he would fall asleep pretty quickly. Well, I was wrong. He didn't do a lot of screaming this time, but pulled a new trick out of the bed time revolt bag. I heard Andrew undo the Velcro of his diaper so I went in to see what was going on after a few minutes. He was standing there, naked, and when I asked him what was going on, he told me he peed. Yep, he had peed on the floor. Apparently there is a pee reserve for these occasions since he had just gone ten minutes before. I cleaned up and redressed the boy. I emphasized that his diaper and clothes are to stay on and that pee (or poop) goes in the toilet or diaper ONLY. Thankfully exhaustion must have set in and all was quiet shortly after.
Cut to nap time today. Again, we followed our usual routine. I changed Andrew's diaper (he didn't want to use the potty this time), we read a book, and turned the lights off. He called me in shortly after and I found him laying there pantsless and pulling the Velcro of his diaper off. I redressed him and said good night again. We did this routine about 4 times and then the fifth time, I stepped in something wet when I walked toward the crib. Pee on the floor. A lot of it. The edge of the area rug was soaked. Me = not happy. Clean up. Re-diaper and redress. Repeat this cycle 3 more times in the next hour and a half. I finally called it a day in regards to getting a nap. I called Carl to vent a little and to let him know what is in store for bed time tonight. The pee bandit.
