Ok internet people. Here's the thing: I know I mentioned in my previous post how Max peed in my parents' bed. He really hasn't done it in a while. But he did again last night. His pediatrician says it's normal for boys to do that until age 12or so. Fine.
He has a sleep over at camp next Thursday.
Being a Mom I automatically thought of the worst case scenario. (Does it ever kind of hit you? I'm a MOM! Like I"m actually responsible for somebody else! Gah! Anyhow....) You know... what if... he... pees?!?!?
So I say to him.... in an off handed way: "Wow, you have a sleep over next week!" Him "Yeah." Me: "So what do you think about that?" Him: Shrug. Me: "No thoughts?" Him: "Mom!"
Do I: 1) Follow his lead? He's not concerned so I'm not concerned? 2) Call the doctor to get the medication to prevent bed wetting (Dr. had mentioned it to me before - to be used for "social" situations....;Do I tell him? Do I just slip it into his peanut butter sandwich? 3) Pull ups?
I don't want to make him self conscious, and I don't want to create an issue where there might not be one. Maybe he's more in control than I think. Maybe he knows he can control his bladder....
Maybe I"m over thinking this... and just let what happens happen & deal with the after shocks? I mean, this happens to kids all the time, right? They aren't scarred for life, right?
But I just want to protect him.
Or, do I sit with him and have a talk? Tell him I can get this pill and what does he think?
I'm really really at a loss.
