Confessions of a Sleep Deprived Momma

As some of you know, I'm in Abilene this week. The trip has been going well and Korben and I have had a great time spending time with my family and a couple of old friends. When night comes around though, sometimes it is a different story. My parents live in an older house and the bedroom we're in has a sliding door. The bathroom right next to our room also has a sliding door. It's a little hard to explain if you have never seen these pocket doors but both of them are old, out of whack, and VERY loud. I wake up every single morning at around 5:00 am needing to pee. Every night. Without fail. Well every time I open that stupid sliding door, it's like an alarm clock going off to Korben and he wakes up. I got tired of going through this, so the other night when I woke up and needed to pee, I was trying to think of how I could avoid waking up Korben (holding it was NOT an option because I couldn't handle the pain of the pressure). And then a light bulb went off in my head. Korben pees in diapers. We happen to have some diapers right here. And yes people, I busted out a diaper and I peed in it! And then I went back to sleep thankful for the relief and that I didn't wake the baby. And I just admitted it on my public blog. So next time you're having a bad day, ask yourself if you've ever in your adult life had to pee in a diaper... if the answer is no, then count your blessings and have a good laugh at the fact that someone else out there has resorted to such lows! And then enjoy the rest of your not so bad day! :)
