Jackster has been driving me half mad by peeing his pants on a regular basis. Sometimes he seems to have a bladder full, other times it's just a little pee... enough to wet his pants and through to his jeans but not enough to have a huge fight about. Yesterday I took the kiddoes to Super Target ( du du du duuuuhhhh!!) and prudently took him to the bathroom before we left home. It's a 15 minute drive people. When we got there, he had peed. GAH! It was 9 degrees out and I didn't want his willy to freeze off!!! I HAD to go in the store as we had gone to get his glasses repaired! We went in with him wet. Bah. Today we took Jack for an eye exam. We set off early in the morning, again, peeing first. A 25 minute drive, straight to the bathroom on arrival..... wet. AAGGGHHH...... Since we were out anyway I decided to call the Pediatricians and have them make sure the guy doesn't have some sort of infection. We took him in and they had him pee in a "hat" !! ROFLMAO!!! I LOVE when they ask him to "pee in the hat" such a visual!!! :D Anyhoo... he peed in the hat and they proclaimed him as having "perfect" pee!!! Who knew there were qualifications?!?! :D So, no infection, diabetes, nothing worrisome. Great. So why the blazes does he keep peeing?!!? It's making me NUTS. The nurse explained that little boys, from the ages of about 5 to about 8 tend to have spazzy bladders which will suddenly start spasming for no particular reason and without warning. Also, said small boys are less likely to pee until they are done, preferring instead to pee only as much as makes their bladder feel comfortable enough to continue playing!! Ah HAH!! Makes a lot of sense!! :D
I'm to make peeing "exciting" and "fun" for him..... perhaps have him pee on a Cheerio ( about all they are good for ...!!! ) or some other cereal product. The nurse said that he needs to pee for as long as he can and then try again to pee some more. I suggested I teach him to write his name in the snow....!! ;D She gamely smiled and pressed on .....!! ;D
Anyway, there ya go. Little Boy Bladder. A made up name for a condition that bothers Mothers more than Boys I'm thinking.
Reminds me of a nursery rhyme........!!!
