Never Too Sleepy for Sports

We've been battling with night time potty training for some time now. It's really become an onus for me, because I'm the one who has to wake Bii up and drag his fanny in to our bathroom a couple of times a night. Like his Daddy-O, he's an incredibly sound sleeper and he just can't wake himself up when he needs to "go". Our pediatrician assures us this is normal and tells us not to worry; he'll out grow it in time. (Daddy-O had issues until he was 10 or so... sigh)

The trips to the bathroom are particularly funny though. He is most asleep on our first trip somewhere around 10:00 pm. He trips and stumbles as I waddle behind him, holding him up and steering him away from the trash can and to the actual potty. Occasionally, while sound asleep, he'll catch an invisible pop-fly and throw the ball to first to complete the double play. Sometimes he'll talk to me: "Did you see my touchdown pass Mama?"

I was watching the Stanley Cup Final in our bedroom last night before bed. When I got up and hauled his sleepy butt in to our room, he walked past the television and without skipping a beat said, "Hey look Mama! The Bruins are up 3 to nothing!"

The kid eats, sleeps and pees sports.

Oh My GOSH!!! That is too funny. I feel your pee pain..... I get little man up at 10 everynight. I carry him to the potty. If I don't I will most likely get peed on or be cleaning pee up.....
Miss you...

Biggs wasn't reliably over night potty trained till he was nearly 8. I'd say it was a boy thing but Bean was reliable by age 4. KIDS!

How funny!

I, too, had issues until I was 10 or so. I remember my father getting a little tired of it (like he was the one taking care of it....). Anyway, one night, when I did wake, I went (by way of sleepwalking) to their bedroom, stood by their bed and told my mom I needed "to go".

My dad, exasperatedly, told me to "just go!".

I did.

Right there on the floor beside their bed.

Maybe if I'd been talking sports the whole time he'd have been less aggravated? :)
