Aaron’s mostly potty trained, with the exception of during bedtime. He knows what he needs to do: If he has to pee when he’s in bed, he has permission to get up and go to the bathroom.
But he’s a deep sleeper. When he wakes up in the morning, he’s got no idea whether he’d peed into his pull-up or not.
The first thing he does when he wakes up is to defiantly tell any nearby grownups to go away. Then he privately inspects his pull-up to see if there’s anything wet in there. Either he’ll come out of his room very pleased with himself, or a bit disappointed.
It’s like he’s checking if there’s been a surprise visit from the Pee Fairy!
