It had been a little too long since I had washed the kids' sheets, but with a bunk bed it's just a little too much effort. Especially that top bunk. So last Saturday, Tom pulled the sheets off, we got them washed and put back on. (We could have just put on the back-up set, but those are plain, and Rico wanted Mickey.) I figured we'd be good to go for a good while.
Enter Tuesday night.
Tom got home from work early and for once we didn't have anything going on in the evening. He's been wanting to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol for awhile now, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. Since both Ella and Rico got immense amounts of sour cream on their shirts during dinner, we had them change into jammies before the movie. I didn't put a diaper on Rico (he still wears one overnight) since it was a couple hours until bed time.
That was a mistake.
Naturally we forgot to put one on him before he got in bed. And naturally, this wasn't one of his dry nights (of which he has many). So the sheets lasted all of three nights. One of which was spent at Grandma's.
Luckily he's on the bottom bunk, or I might have complained a whole lot more.
