I have really had about all I can take from my 7 year old. First off he still wets the bed. We have a plastic sheet on his bed to prevent anything from going on the mattress, he wears a goodnight to bed at night and we have those despoable mattress pads for on top of the sheet. Second off he has taken up lying to us. Last night Dh got the boys ready for bed. I came in to tuck them in and before I tucked my 7 year old in bed I asked him if he had a pull up on. He swore he did. I believed him because Dh helped them get ready for bed. This morning after the boys left for school I went in there room to check for dirty clothes and basically just straighten up. I went to put his bear in his bed and check his despoable mattress pad and I noticed his comforter was soaked along with the despoable mattress pad and sheet. I was confused. I was like, "seriously you peed through your pull up that much?" I looked around for his jammies so I could throw them in the wash with his blanket and sheet. I found them stuffed all the way to the back of the under side of his bed. There was no pull in the trash nor with his clothes. Just a pair of wet pants, undies and shirt. Get where I am going with this he lied about wearing a pull up. Last thing that is absolutely driving me crazy with my son is the fact that he won't go in his room, got to the bathroom or basically go anywhere by himself. If I ask him to go brush his teeth he will make any and every excuse why he can't by saying things like, "I'm waiting for brother to come or I need you to help me." If I ask him to go take his shower he will ask if I will sit in the bathroom with him or if he can leave the door open. If he needs to go potty he will drag the dog back there with him. I am sick and tired of having to follow him around the house or having to get on him about doing what he needs to do with having to have someone with him. Please tell me I am not alone. That there are other mom's out there having similar issues.
