My DS7's bedroom was in dire need of a tidy up.

So this morning I summoned up the enthusiasm, plus there was a funny smell.

There I am, on my hands and knees, slinging toys back in the box, books in another one and little bits of paper and sweet wrappers in the bin.

There is a cardboard box that is surplus to requirements so
naturally I picked it up. Imagine my surprize When I got a wet leg.

The little sod had wee'd in an old sweet tin and then put it in the box.

My trousers, slippers, socks and a towel are now in the washing machine.

I don't know why he did this, he's not a million miles away from the bathroom and there are night lights everywhere, specifically because it's DARK in the corridors.

Mind you if I have stern words with him, hopefully he won't be as lazy as a 'friend' of mine who had lines of bottles beside his bed.

I will ask him why he did it, when he gets home from school and go from there. I will not shout, I believe this is something he did days ago .

In the mean time, YUCK! YUCK! EEEEUUUWWW!!!!

Yuk, does he sleepwalk?

jollymary Thu 04-Oct-12 18:03:02

EEuuuwww!! But not as bad as a friend's son, it came out at his wedding that he and his brother had regularly wee'd inside an old teddy of theirs that had a ripped seam..

caramelsmadfuzzytail Thu 04-Oct-12 20:20:56

No, he doesn't sleepwalk.

I spoke to him on the way home from school. He told me that the dog did it confused

I told him that I knew he'd done it and that I'd rather he didn't do it again.

I also told him, I'd make him drink it. Not that I would, but he knows I mean what I day.

Make him drink it? shock

My friend noticed a funny smell in her teenage son's bedroom and on investigation found a carrier bag full of used condoms in the bottom of his wardrobe. Apparently he wasn't sure how to dispose of them. Now THAT'S disgusting.

You told him you would do something that you don't intend to do but your son knows you mean what you say? So are you going to make him drink it? I'm confused and a bit disturbed.

Please don't make your son drink wee.

caramelsmadfuzzytail Thu 04-Oct-12 21:11:30

No, I have no intention whatsoever of making him drink it. I'm not that cruel.

He knows I mean what I say because I don't back down.

I have never made a promise I don't keep.

I don't know how else to explain it.

fuckadoodlepoopoo Thu 04-Oct-12 21:19:54

But you've made him believe you will make him drink it! Harsh!

I've now got visions of the dog weeing in a tin - and then putting the tin in the box. He has a very good imagination !

Numberlock Fri 05-Oct-12 08:36:46

caramel I think this is why we are confused:

I also told him, I'd make him drink it

He knows I mean what I say because I don't back down

I have never made a promise I don't keep

Hopefully your son understands that you won't make him drink it...

VinegarTits Fri 05-Oct-12 08:41:30

he is 7 fgs, saying you will make him drink it is bloody awful!

did you ask him why? or if he was worried about something? maybe he was desperate but got spooked by something in the night and was then too embarrassed to own up so hid it

As bad as it sounds it was a spur of the moment statement. It brought home the fact that I was not a happy bunny. Not a good choice of wordsI know I won't have to carry out my threat.

bubblesandsnips Fri 05-Oct-12 22:26:12

well done caramel! he won't do it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fuckadoodlepoopoo Thu 11-Oct-12 13:01:48

You won't have to carry out your threat? Does that mean that if he did do it again you would carry it out?

Did you ask why he did it?

DS8 went through a long stage of making & storing in his bedroom what he called 'potions' in plastic water bottles, which contained - well, anything he could find, really; water, stock cubes, ink, paint, spices, talcum powder, shampoo. I expect he considered wee as an ingredient, but I never opened any of the bottles to find out what was in them. He was allowed to keep a couple of them as a 'scientific experiment' for a while, it was quite interesting looking at the breakdown process.

maybe your DS was just experimenting, and chose his method badly?

Oh fgs relax, she isn't going to make him drink it. She is trying to stop him from doing something yucky, pointless, unhygienic, antisocial and naughty. It's good for them to have a bit of fear for the consequences of their actions imho. Only the same as threatening to throw a toy away when you find it on the stairs for the seventh time, or telling a child his teeth will fall out if he doesn't brush them regularly. I bet it'll stop him doing it again, and that's the point.

Didn't your parents ever threaten to pull your leg off and beat you with the soggy end? wink

Dusty. Your son sounds great! grin
