I have a question for all of you. It’s a very simple, basic question. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I have 2 answers. Work days, I get dressed then go pee. Non-work days, I go pee. When I get dressed before I go pee it literally takes me 2 minutes to get dressed because I have to pee.
The reason I ask, is because both of my kids never pee first thing. My wife and I literally have to tell them to go before we leave to take them to school. Neither one of them get up at all during the night to go so I don’t understand how they can not go after sleeping for 11 hours. If I got up, got dressed, had some breakfast, got my stuff ready to go to school, I would have already peed myself. Trevor usually runs to the bathroom and you can hear him dancing while trying to get his pants undone. The problem is, that’s not until after he eats breakfast. I have never in my life knew of anyone who didn’t go pee fairly quickly after getting up. Granted, I don’t have much knowledge of most peoples pee habits, but it just seems like most people go right away. Cheri posted the question on her facebook.
So you can see, I’m not far off. Most people go pee first.
With Samantha, it’s not only a morning thing. She will go most of the day at school without going. Some days, she doesn’t go until she gets home. I’ve told her time and time again that she is going to have bladder issues but she won’t listen. I guess when she starts getting infections, she’ll figure it out, maybe.
So what say you? Am I wrong in this thinking? Do your kids go first thing or is this something they learn to do later in life?
