It was so unexpected I was a little taken aback and it took me a while to string together a proper sentence in response.
Princess told me, whilst looking me dead in the eyes that she was going to wear knickers to bed from now on.
Guess what – she did it! She went to bed in knickers and stayed dry all night. It was a nervous night for me. I was unprepared. I didn’t have anything underneath her other than a towel I’d hastily placed under her.
She stayed dry all night and the next night and the night after that!
Princess is so proud of herself ( so am I) and in recognition of her new ‘big girl’ status we went on a pyjama shopping spree and also bought a fish tank. There are no fish yet, but there is water and a Little Mermaid statue which she’s named Princess Olivia. I’ve tried to explain to her that her name is actually Ariel but I’ve given up.
She is dry all night, I’m happy. That’s all that matters!
