A "double" shower
This morning my sleep was interrupted at 5 AM by Cameron.
“Mommy, I need a shower.”
“Cameron, it’s 5 AM. You do not need a shower right now. Go back to sleep,” I mummbled.
“I can’t Mommy. I need to get a shower,” he reponded urgently.
“Did you wet the bed?” (a common occurrence, as he just never wakes up).
“Well, just change your PJs like you always do, and lie down on the little couch.” (A small foam fold-out kids couch that was next to our bed).
“I can’t Mommy. I really need a shower.”
I am EVIL when I’m tired, and I sighed in complete frustration.
Cameron quickly added, “When I was sleeping, I pulled my pull-ups down and didn’t know it. And my penis was sticking out. When I peed, it squirted on my head.”
I could do nothing at that moment but just crack up laughing….and turn the shower on for him.
While he was cleaning off, I laid back down and went back to sleep for at least 20 minutes. I woke up to the sound of the shower still going. When I went in the bathroom to coax him out, I found him lying flat on the ground, with the shower water pouring over him. He was singing to himself, totally relaxed.
Again, I could only laugh…and quickly turn off that water.
