I have to share this funny story a mother of a 9 year-old recently told me. Her son has had bedwetting every night of his life and it’s been bothering him more now that he’s older. They’ve had more conversations about bedwetting and treatments. She happens to be a medical professional so frequently uses medical terminology.
One recent morning, she saw him looking out the window into the rainy, gloomy dark day. She heard him say, “Enuresis”. Her reply was, “I’m sorry that this bedwetting has made you so upset” and she felt bad for him. His reply was, “Mom, I said INDOOR RECESS”. She laughed and didn’t feel so bad after all.
