The Simple Things [Permalink]

It's amazing how as a parent you get excited over the littlest things. Tonight I cheered because I am 99% positive I won't have to change the sheets on the queen bed in the morning. I have washed them EVERYTIME Kha'sheim has slept. His paperwork from Deb's house says he is potty trained over night and John and I have found that to be completely not true. I didn't want to put him in diapers over night right away in case he would get upset, but finally today I gave up, I just couldn't keep up with all the laundry!

I could tell John was hesitant too in giving Kha'siem the pull-ups I bought. He said casually but enthusiastically (something only John can pull off), "Look Kha'siem, this is to wear for bed, put them on like underwear, see they have Shrek on them." Kha'siem had no clue about them being diapers and he ran around to tell Ben about the picture on them! Ben was excited for him and it was very cute.

Kha'siem has taken to calling me Mommy and has referred to John once or twice as Daddy. I think this could be a culture thing, or just something he picked up from Paige and Ben. This doesn't bother me at all, but I'm not sure if it should be something to be encouraged. We have a lot to learn about this type of care...
