"Mommy…" the plaintive voice penetrated my sound sleep.
More insistent this time. "Mommy. My pant1es are wet."
Ughhhh, not again.
As any mom knows, it’s the risk you take, allowing your preschooler to share your bed.
We all know the drill. When this happens, we immediately strip the bed and then find a place elsewhere to spend the rest of the night. Usually my daughter and I cram into her twin-sized bed while Husband spends the rest of the night on the family room couch wrapped in a quilt. A stiff neck is usually the result.
But last night was different. As we all tumbled groggily from our bed, I remembered. We now have a Protect-A-Bed mattress protector on our bed. There was no need to sleep elsewhere or to spend two days airing out our mattress and treating it with Febreeze.
We simply stripped off the sheets and the mattress cover, threw them all in the bathtub, remade the bed, and crawled back in.
