I've often wondered if anybody has any stories from their childhood about being wet on Christmas morning?
I ask this for a few reasons.
As a childhood bed wetter, I would often wear a nappy to bed, or else training pants with plastic panties. I would change my own trainers, but if I was wearing a nappy, would leave it on until I had a shower in the morning. Usually would get showered straight away, but of course on Christmas Day there are other more important things to do first! The shower would wait until the presents were opened, and I would stay diapered a lot longer than usual.
In Australia, Christmas is in summer, and as you drive around the suburbs, there are kids running around their yards everywhere playing with their new toys, and still wearing their pyjamas, so I'm sure I'm not the only one who delayed getting dressed. My kids are usually still being told to get dressed by late morning, but they don't wet!
Also, the excitement of the presents does lead to delaying the toilet breaks as long as possible until everything has been thoroughly checked out.
I only recall 1 minor incident myself. I would've been 8 years old, and had wet my nappy, although not heavily overnight.
I got a pogo stick from Santa, and was soon outside trying it out. Now I didn't usually wear pyjama bottoms around the house, just the top and my exposed nappy or trainers. But because I was going outside to play, I put the bottoms on as well. I must've been up for a few hours by now, and hadn't used the bathroom.
I was happily bouncing away and ignoring my need to go, when I nearly fell backwards. I managed to plant my feet in time, but wet myself in the process. I didn't leak, the nappy was already wet anyway, so I didn't say anything.
It was probably an hour later that mum made me come in for a shower. If she noticed my nappy was wetter or heavier than usual, she didn't comment on it.
Anyone else get wet or stay wet at Christmas when you were a kid? And if so, what happened?
