Homeless and out of Pull-ups

At the beginning of December we were told, that come January, the house we were renting would no longer be available. The owners had sold their bigger home and needed to move back into "ours". They wanted us out in two weeks (by December 15th). Is that even legal??!!! There was no way we'd be able to be out that soon.

Long story short, we're waiting for our house to close and have moved in with my parents. I LOVE IT. Truly. My mom, sisters, and I all share clothes, so my wardrobe has tripled. But the biggest plus by far is having 6 additional family members to entertain my kids!! Can't beat that!

The price we pay for this sweet amenity:
Night accommodations in the RV parked in the carport.

My kids actually LOVE it.

Griffin and Kai sleep on the overhead bed above the driver/passenger seats and Treyson takes the cozy dining area that turns into a bed. Two out of the three have done really well with this transition. Kai is having some struggles. He's never been able to keep his blanket on him throughout the night it gets cold on the upper bunk. The RV has heat, but it doesn't reach that high with full force. Jeff thinks this is the reason Kai is having problems with wetting the bed. He'd done it at least 3 times in the first week.

So I dug into our diaper stash and found one last pull-up from potty training. (FYI -- Kai will be 4 in March.) Dressing the boys in jammies one night, Jeff was holding open the pull-up for Kai to step into. Because we had not yet instructed him to make his last toilet stop before bed.... his bladder was fairly full. Well, instead of stepping into the pull-up, Kai proceeds to stand there, as if at a urinal, peeing. Jeff yelped and started laughing all at the same time..... "Kai! What are you doing?!" ....... not really knowing what to do...... stuck with a front row view of Kai relieving himself.

I had to throw in my comment of: "Kai! You werent' supposed to go potty in there!"

Kai replied with, "MOM! I wasn't going to go potty on the floor!"
