Me getting more sleep has been sponsored by GoodNites* TRUFIT*. Thanks guys!
I don’t get to sleep much, but when I do, I love to luxuriate in the feeling of deep blissful sleep. REM cycle after REM cycle, a sleep full of dreams that start and finish, maybe even a little snoring. Long, lovely, amazing uninterrupted… tap tap tap…
Mom. Mommy. MOM. Are you awake?
I open my eyes to see the Big Kid, *this close* to my face, staring at me and almost have a heart attack. What the heeeeelllll? What’s going on? Why are you in my room like a kid from some creepy horror movie? And as I wake up and focus in on the boy in front of me… why are you naked??
Mom, I had an accident.
Oh. Ok. No horror movie monster is coming to snatch me from my bed. No black eyed little boy is going to open his mouth and meow at me. It’s just a naked almost-five year old, who even though he’s been potty trained for years, still has the occasional accident. It doesn’t seem to faze him too much, as he’s happy to run around the house like a nudist, but obviously the 2am wake ups for both of us are little inconvenient. And to be perfectly honest, I am not my best at 2am.
As I exhaustedly trudge to his room to change the sheets (thank GOD for the waterproof mattress cover) I think that this really isn’t all that uncommon for kids. In fact, the experts say that 1 in 6 children, ages 4-12, still have accidents at night. This does have a limiting factor for some, making them not want to have sleepovers with friends, go to sleep away camp, or even go on overnights with family. And while the Big Kid rocks the “I’m Awesome” complex, I know that he’s not completely unaffected. Especially since waking Mommy in the middle of the night can be hazardous to your health.
Enter in GoodNites® and their new line of big kid underwear that has just a little bit more. It looks, feels and wears just like regular underwear, except with the added bonus of a disposable insert that protects your kid, their jammies, their bedding and most importantly, your precious sleep.
GoodNites* TRUFIT* are super cute too (because aren’t all little boy undies just ADORABLE??), regular underwear with fully sealed seams to boost leak protection and a water repellant coating inside to provide dry comfort. It’s GENIUS because the only people who know about it are you and your kid.
And hopefully, with all that overnight protection from GoodNites®? You’ll get the sleep that you, as a mom, deserve.
How much sleep do YOU get a night??
