Here’s a good one for you: pregnancy brain is a REAL thing. Either that, or I’m just losing my mind all together…and if you follow me on Instagram then you already know this, BUT…
Last night, I put Lucas to bed without a diaper on. Or underwear (not that he wears them to bed, he’s not potty trained yet). Nope, just his Batman jammies. He had said he needed to go pee pee on the potty shortly before bed, so we had gone in and took the diaper off so he could do his business. From there, we washed hands and brushed teeth, and then he got playing with Jay in his room before bed and, somewhere along the line, just climbed into bed without me thinking twice about the fact that he had no diaper on.
When I woke him up from a dead sleep the next morning, I noticed he was pretty wet, which I assumed he’d just peed out his diaper (he had a lot of water before bed…of course). So I stripped his bed and went to throw his bedding in the wash so I could come back and strip him down…and then I hear, “Uh oh, mommy,”
I get back into his room to find him standing on his mattress (which is now stripped of everything, mattress pad and all). He looks down at his feet and says, “Pee pee bed, sorry mommy.”
And that’s when it hit me. He didn’t have a freakin’ diaper on him.
I told him it was okay and that mommy was silly for forgetting his diaper, and I actually good a fairly good laugh out of it. Jay had to leave early for work that morning, so I was scrambling to get him washed up, dressed, and ready for the day, while also trying to make his lunch and get us out the door on time.
We weren’t on time. But we made it eventually.
Thankfully, the copious amounts of baking soda I doused his mattress with, paired with some serious blowing of fans, did a good job of soaking up the stains and smell. Ay yi yi.
And that is all I’ve got for you today, my friends. One fun and funny fact.
Now tell me…what fun and funny stuff have you had happen to YOU lately?? 😉
