No Way! Did he really do that?!?

So last night I was getting ready to go to bed and I was doing my normal walk through of the house.   Every night I check the kids, doors/windows and appliances and make sure lunches are packed for the next day.

I walked into my sons room to check on him and kiss him goodnight and stepped in a wet spot on the carpet.  Not knowing what the it was, I did what any Mom would do…I took my sock off and smelled it.  No smell (not sure what I was expecting though).  Why I would even think about smelling it is beyond me!

I look around, is there a cup on the ground?  No.

A washcloth maybe?  Not a chance.

I do however find the underwear he was wearing laying about 6 inches from “the spot”.  And Guess what??  They were dry!  So I ask myself…


I can only think that he got out of bed to pee and thought he had walked the 10 extra steps it would have taken him to get to the bathroom.  Pulled his underwear down and did his business…am I ever glad all he had to do was pee!

Note to self:

1.    Never smell your sock after you step in something….nothing good can come from it!

2.  Always make sure little man uses the bathroom before bed.

This isn’t the first time a thing like this has happened.  A few months ago I woke him up to go to the bathroom (I knew he fell asleep without going) and when I walked into the bathroom to check on him he was peeing on the floor right beside the toilet.  UGH!  I guess it could be worse…


Maybe I should invest in this sign!

  4. Stopping by from MBC. Smelling your sock after stepping in something is a mommy reflex. Just like when you touch their pants and they're wet you smell your hands to see if its pee or water.

  5. I see you are following my blog "reflections of a navy wife." Thanks! I read a few of your posts and I LOVE your blog! You tell it how it is! I can relate with a little one running around :)I will definitely continue reading your blog and updated posts :)

  6. Thanks Ladies! It must be a Mom thing, smelling the sock :) It's kinda like when the baby needs her diaper changed and I sniff it just to be sure she really did The things we Moms do!
