So close!

I heard my son’s door open in the middle of the night (at 3 am, to be precise). He didn’t call, so I didn’t move and waited to see what he was about to do. I heard him go to the bathroom and climb on his small step stool all by himself. Then I heard him go back to his bedroom and shut the door.

Success! I thought, and my eyes closed again. But then I heard a call.

He had managed to pull his diaper and pants down to pee, and he had been able to pull his diaper back up. The only problem is, the diaper is so bulky that the pajama pants are really tight and hard to pull on top of the diaper. So he was standing there, near his bed, with his pants down. He looked at me and said:

“I can’t pull my pants up, Maman. I really can’t!”

He sounded so disappointed! I made sure to tell him how proud I was that he went to the bathroom by himself, I helped him and put him to bed with a big hug… and now I just have to find very loose pants that are easy to pull up! Gosh, we were so close to success!
