Just a few weeks in, and despite lots of liaising with school, a timetable of which teacher/teaching assistant/dinner lady and much reassurance from me, the NC and school, Mini is back to wetting the bed every day again.
Bright side - wetting is only at home, and only in bed at the moment. It's not deep sleep wetting, in fact he's got up a couple of times in the middle of the night to go to the loo. But it's early morning wetting, right before he gets up. I'm not sure whether it's laziness (our toilet is downstairs so it's an effort in the morning when you're all snug in bed), anxiety about school (more likely as it didn't happen in the holidays) or something else. But, Mini can't tell me why. He can't tell me if he does it upon waking, or whether it's just before hand. And he just doesn't seem bothered - but he does have a full-on meltdown when I suggest a shower in the morning to keep him clean, healthy and smelling nice!
I know it must be awful for him, although as I say, he doesn't seem remotely bothered. I've told him that most other 5 year olds don't wet the bed anymore, but I don't want to make him feel more shame, so I don't bang on about it.
But it's getting ME down. A lot. My poor old washing machine is back to it's incredibly busy self, and my house is constantly covered in drying duvets and bedding. We have no central heating so getting the duvet dry can often take two days (a spare has been ordered). And my house, especially upstairs, smells.
I'm struggling with the length of time everything is taking...and we're not getting anywhere yet. None of the professionals that we're engaging with have even met Mini (bar my parent supporter, and the social worker who recorded us). This wetting gets me down more than the rages, meltdowns and violence, because even when Mini's not here I'm still reminded of his anxieties, and still picking up the pieces...
