I’m oversharing to set up a great story: the other night was just like I described. The kid had been a right brat, screaming and crying and refusing to pee in the toilet. After about half an hour of that, Mike took him upstairs to get him ready for bed. Donny got into his pull ups as fast as he could and Mike could hear that telltale sound of pee hitting paper-product. At which point Donovan turned to Mike and said, “Don’t. Say. A. WORD.”
Is that as funny to you as it is to me? I’ve tried to tell that story about three times now and I keep having a laughing fit right where the punchline should go.
BTW: please don’t consider this a “teachable moment” for us. We KNOW putting him in pull ups at night is part of this current problem. We are waiting it out until his new therapist starts with him next week to see if she has any specific words of wisdom and we will take it from there. No sense in starting a regimen that might get nixed by the professionals.
