Boo wet the bed tonight. She wets the bed a lot but it’s usually in the middle of the night and I’ve always thought she just never woke up for it, slept right thru it and didn’t feel the wet. But now that I think about it, I think the therapist she was seeing put that idea into her head because it wasn’t until he mentioned that in front of her that she started saying that she couldn’t feel it.
But tonight she wet the bed right after I put her in it. She didn’t call me, she didn’t get up, she just peed the bed. I only figured it out because I went back in there to give her a stuffed animal and I reminded her of our deal – she goes a month without wetting the bed and she’ll get a comforter set that she can pick out herself. That’s when she told me she’d already peed.
I thought this was a medical thing, you know, small bladder, sound sleeper, but now I wonder if this isn’t an extension of the whole pooping in the closet thing she was doing 8 months ago.
I know this is most likely because of the chaos that’s going on around here. I know that. But I don’t know if therapy will help. I also really can’t afford the therapy bill. I’ll have to ask if the doctor she was seeing can reduce the copay or if there’s some other way to get a discount. Or maybe he just has some ideas for me because I’m stumped.
Maybe I should do a reward chart for smaller lengths of time – five days gets something. But what? What’s a good, small reward for that? Something I don’t have to buy, as money is very tight right now.
Can I please just get a break? Please? I know this isn’t a major crisis but it’s just one. more. thing in my seemingly endless list of things to worry about.
