For about a year now I've had a problem.
And that problem deals with what to have Beezus wear to bed at night. She's been potty trained for almost 2 years and hasn't wet regularly at night for about a year. But I cannot pull the trigger and let her sleep without a pull-up. Because as often as I/we are teetering on the brink of drowning under the domestic chores there's no way I'm going to take a chance and have to wash some sheets out of rotation. No damn way.
But pull-ups are like at least $ . 40 each. And while I would let her wear the same one two nights in a row, even I draw the line after that. Diapers aren't an option because Mr. Quimby takes her to the bathroom at 11pm and a diaper would make that process too cumbersome.
But then a couple of nights ago it hit me in the head like a ton of bricks and I felt SO STUPID for not figuring this out a year ago !!!
Now she wears her underwear next to her body and just wears a pull-up on top of that. The pull up will last for several days before it starts to get all misshapen and the underwear ensures cleanliness. Well, at least as clean as a 4 year old can be !!!
I am a genius. Well, at least I would be if I had this revelation a year ago.
