So, now that my little guy is pretty much using the potty (we're not 100% yet, but we've come a looooong way considering he wasn't using the potty at all a week ago), he is using it to manipulate us.
At bedtime tonight, he got up after lights out and said, "I need to go potty." Well...we don't want to not let him (heck...we've been fighting to get him to want to go!)...but we know he's asking just to get out of bed.
So, we let him sit on the potty for a few minutes. Nothing. Back to bed.
Then he got up again. "I need to go potty." This time I brought the potty to him so that he at least could see that he wasn't going very far. Nothing.
Anyway, finally, I said, "No more. Stay in bed."
So, the little booger purposefully peed in bed so that we would let him get up! "Mommy, I peed in the bed!" And sure enough he did...the smallest amount (enough to have to change his undies but not nearly a regular pee amount). "Oh well, I go to potty."
After the cleanup, we put him back to bed and he finally fell asleep. He was rubbing his eyes when we put him to bed the first time, so I know that he was sleepy.
How do they get so smart? I so hope that this was a one-night thing because, honestly, I'm not sure how to handle it best. Thoughts?
