Motor Mouth is potty trained but is having some issues staying dry at night. These are my adventures in helping Motor Mouth achieve nighttime dryness on a regular basis.

It's Early in the Night

Okay, so FINALLY, I'm working with Motor Mouth on the dry nights again. I put the 'puppy training pad' down on the bed and had him sleep butt naked. Motor Mouth, upon realizing he was sleeping without a pull-up or any clothing said, "Oh, I didn't know I was sleeping like daddy!"

I put the kids to bed at 9:00 pm. At about 11:30, Motor Mouth woke up and said he had to go to the bathroom. I told him to put on a pull-up and went to remove the wet pad and sheets. 

Only...They weren't wet!!! 
He woke up all on his own to go pee in the potty!!

Now, I don't know if this is working for sure or not. It is only night 1. I had Motor Mouth go back to bed commando. No pull-up for my boy, tonight!!

That's nada, as in nothing
(Not as in National Automobile Dealers Association) 

I've done nothing about furthering Motor Mouth's potty training habits. His sheets needed to be changed but I never remembered, so he slept with his little sister (for a week...yes, it was like that). Then we had company staying in his room for 2 1/2 weeks so he had to share a bed with his sister, again. And now, I just need to going on this dry night thing. 

Motor Mouth has a friend coming to stay here in June. That's 2 months away. Wouldn't it be amazingly wonderful if he was having dry nights by then?
