The familiar sound of Elliana’s feet on the stairs greeted me this morning. Yet, her voice reached me before her body did. She called me by first name, as she sometimes does, and proceeded to announce:
“Actually, I peed in my bed.”
Even before entering the room, she assured me that she’d taken care of it. This had my mind racing about all of the potential repercussions to what she just shared. I was about to inquire, but she wasn’t done sharing.
As I turned to see her, indeed, in a fresh set of pajamas, she revealed the rest.
“And, I didn’t want to wear pull-ups, so I put on an under-suit.”
She followed this by lowering her pajama pants to reveal a pair of bathing suit bottoms. They were neon green and aqua with a fairly large ruffle. Apparently, this was the closest thing to “big-girl-underwear” that she could locate.
Then, in a whisper voice, she tilted her head and said “The pull-ups were sleeping”.
