Portrait Of A Woman, Slowly Being Driven Insane

My day started awfully early. I have no idea what time she woke up, but The Bug pattered into my room at what-the-fuck o'clock to crawl into bed with me. This is something that happens three or four nights a week and I am sick of it. I bought some melatonin to give to each girl before bed, but so far, it doesn't seem to be keeping them asleep.

Boo woke up just before 7 a.m. and before I could stumble into her room, had peed all over the floor. I don't know what this is - she's going to be five in a couple of days and has been potty trained for two years now. But the last couple of months, she wets the bed a couple of times a week and has peed on the floor several times, too. It's not diabetes - I've had her tested.

After breakfast, The Bug had to pee, too, and went into the bathroom. She peed on the floor rather than on the toilet. So I've cleaned up pee twice today, all before 8 a.m..

That Canadian Boy I Married and I had a spat this morning, too, which didn't do anything to help my mood.

Finally, I was walking into the kitchen with some dishes that had been left in the living room and slipped. The Bug had put a glass of orange juice on the floor, which I kicked over - because, really, I didn't expect there to be a glass there, plus I had my hands full. I went ass over teakettle, dropping the dishes and sliding into a dining room chair, which fell on top of me. I was covered in orange juice and whatever was in the glass I was carrying.

Needless to say, after cleaning all the crap off the floor, I went upstairs and took a shower and had a bit of a woe-is-me sniffle under the water.

I desperately need to get a full time job. This stay-at-home shit is going to be the death of me.

(And if anyone could tell me what to do to fix the template on this thing, I'd be eternally grateful. It's a mess.)

Could the melatonin be to blame? Maybe it's putting Boo into such a deep sleep, she doesn't wake up to pee? My 6yo waits and waits until she is DYING to go and I still have to remind her to go potty or I'm sure she'd still have accidents too.

Tough morning for sure though. Hope the day got better after that.

I dunno, I can tell you the other day (at her party no less) Allison was throwing a fit IN THE BATHROOM. Had locked herself in there, then pee'd on the floor. Claimed she didn't make it to the toilet in time. Seriously? YOU WERE IN THE BATHROOM FOR THAT PAST 15 MINUTES.

Then my mom yelled at me for yelling at her.

I'm sorry, I'm no help with the template.

Savannah wets the bed at night sometimes. I cut off liquids well before bed and have her pee before bed. But, it's not helping.

Melatonin didn't help Jeremy or myself. The doctor told me to try benedryl for him and THAT didn't work.
