Oh great thanks for asking.
After a long night of near constant night wakings with Baby (2.5 straight weeks... and yes I gave her Motrin last night) Kid got up a little early. She peeked her head in my door and said "Mom I think I went pee in my bed... I woke up and my pjs were wet." P-E-R-F-E-C-T. Good Morning to Me! Now I didn't do or say anything condemning.... I didn't even roll my eyes or groan. I got out of bed and said "Oh Okay" as if this was a fine task to take care of first thing in the morning. Kid hasn't wet the bed EVER. She started waking up with dry diapers at a year old. I'm not kidding. She has a bladder of steel. Not that I would have been mad if this weren't the case. I'm just saying this is HIGHLY unusual and I don't need her to have a complex about it.
Here are the ways in which this sucked though:
#1 She had obviously been sleeping in it allowing it to thoroughly saturate all bedding.
#2 She doesn't have a mattress pad or protector because as I said this has not been a problem before.
#3 She has a foam IKEA mattress that is fit for her bed which can't fit in the washing machine.
#4 That mattress has a little cover... with a BROKEN zipper!!!... that I couldn't take off so I had to *wash* the whole thing by hand hoping to some how eradicate the old strong piss sent from the epicenter of the foam.
#5 Kid has a velvet comforter cover... yes real velvet which is Dry Clean Only... see #2.
There was one *cute* moment in all this... while I was stripping the bed Kid says "I guess sometimes five year olds don't know when they are peeing."
Yeah I guess.
