We spent the better part of the morning at Liberty Park letting the kids run around and play and get wet. Luckily for Wyatt, the splash pad was somehow clogged (sincerely hope it was some sort of leaf matter and not...well...organic matter) which caused about 4 inches of water to fill up the pad. For some reason, and I'm hoping this changes because we have a full summer ahead of us and I plan to spend a lot of time at the splash pad near our house, Wyatt doesn't enjoy shooting water. A pool, that's great, but water potentially spraying in his face? Not a fan.
Anyway, so he had a great morning. (Besides constantly asking for something to eat. I have to threaten him to get him to quit asking every 3 minutes!)
On the way home I gave him the Smart Water bottle I'd purchased on the way, because I'd forgotten his water bottle. If you haven't seen a Smart Water bottle lately, they're sorta large. Like, 24 ounces large. He drank half of it on the way home.
Foreshadow. It's coming.
When we arrived home I put him straight down for a nap, making him stop to use the bathroom before. Then he had a giant nap, meaning, an hour and a half. Depressingly enough (I miss 3 hour nap days!) this is a giant nap for him. He woke up and for some reason instead of calling my name like he always does, he just walked out of his room. He was visibly groggy, evidence of his giant nap, and when Caleb went to pick him up he stopped mid-lift.
He was wet.
And not just sweaty wet, but WET. Bottoms and even part of his top.
For the first time since switching to underwear cold turkey in October, he'd not woken up to use the bathroom. He's never even had an accident at night! Not from day one of potty training! I almost didn't even know what to do. We'd naively left off a mattress protector (which will change), but thankfully this lovely Ikea mattress he sleeps on has a removable cover. (Can't wait to try to get it back on...)
Also? He immediately used the bathroom while we were cleaning up. That's a lot of water for such a tiny bladder.
So there you have it, folks. My kid peed the bed for the first time. During an hour and a half nap.
In other news, I'm packin' up this family for a quick last minute trip to Oregon. Believe I mentioned it, to see our wonderful friends and celebrate the boys payin' off their first franchise. It'll also be the last (I swear!) trip I take before this baby arrives, the last trip that will be considered "easy", meaning we travel with one child and two adults.
Remember when that used to seem challenging?
Enjoy your weekend! I promise pictures, and not just of Wyatt. Abby's adorable Lydia will be there, and folks, she's pretty dang cute.
