Pee Tantrum

Oh ma ga. Last night at 11pm, Bryce started crying out for Jason that he had to go to the "bafroom." Usually Jason gets up but I was still kind of awake so I went in. He was crying and clearly in pain (he had to GO!) so I carried him into the bathroom thinking that would make it better. Well, WRONG. He started stomping around SCREAMING and not even trying to go to the bathroom. He was getting more worked up by the second and all of a sudden I saw a wet spot on his shorts start to grow. I coralled him to the toilet, pulled down his shorts and helped him and my goodness he had to GO! I know how much it hurts when you have to go that badly.

So he finished up and I figured things would quiet down now. Nope. I had to take his shorts and underwear because they were wet and that made him hella mad. And the tantrum continued and then Piper woke up from all the noise. I got him a fresh pair of undies but that clearly ticked him off more because the screaming got louder and he started thrashing around trying to avoid me putting the underpants on him. At this point, I guess the screaming was so loud and his struggle so great that Jason came in. Jason laid down next to him on the bed where he was thrashing and BAM, he kicked Jason. Not good. I left, knowing he was in good hands and went into a crying Piper. I rocked Piper back to sleep while I listened to Bryce continue on and on about whatever it was he was upset about. Finally, Jason got him settled down and he went back to sleep.

This morning, I asked him if he remembered his fit and he told me no, but as soon as my MIL arrived he told her that "Mommy took off my shorts and wouldn't put them back on me. They weren't wet. I don't know why she took them!" Clearly we see things a little bit differently.

Jason has told him before that he doesn't need to call us if he has to go to the bathroom, just to go, but so far he hasn't done it. Although Caroline was over 4 years old before she was able to sleep without a pull-up on at night so I know it's just a matter of time before he accomplishes this too. He's been pretty much potty trained at night since he was daytime potty trained but this pee tantrum was a first - and hopefully last!!
