Less sleep=good news

It was bound to happen as soon as I posted that no one had woken up at night. ;)

Last night Emily woke up wailing/crying/screaming. I'm not sure if it was louder than usual or if it just startled me awake, but I flung myself out of bed and ran into her room. She was laying in bed, crying, and as soon as I sat down on the bed and started comforting her she said...

"Go bathroom?"

By all means, go to the bathroom! LOL

She got up and we went to the bathroom where she peed a LOT and then I took her back to bed. She was fine until she was back in bed and then she started to cry again. I comforted her and reminded her that it was the middle of the night and time to be sleeping. She calmed back down and I sat with her for a few minutes to make sure she was settled. Then I got up and left the room, but left her door open a little bit to listen and make sure she didn't start crying again.

I'm not sure if she had a bad dream and woke up, or if she needed to go to the bathroom and woke up, but I'm thrilled that she wanted to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night! We've really been working with her on potty training but I thought it would be quite a long time before she would be dry at night. If her bladder is waking her up at night, she may be dry sooner than I expected. Of course, it's still going to take a while before she can get herself up and to the bathroom by herself, but we're making progress!

That is really great news. Maggie's been dry for a long time, Ben is completely hopeless & he's 8!!!! I think Ben is borderline D Insipidus though, so he doesn't stand much of a chance
