When Lil’man first came to our home, we put an alarm on his bedroom door. The alarm chimed at night, if/when he opened the door. Since he no longer wears pulls at night, we took the alarm off so that he would feel comfortable getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.
He has never gotten up, because he holds it all night.
When I went into his room this morning to wake him up there was an empty juice box on the floor. I asked him where it came from. Lil’man told me “I got it out of the fridge when you were sleeping.”
I was highly impressed that he got up in the dark (he's scared of the dark), walked into the kitchen, and got a juice box out. I was also impressed that he was able to open said juice box.
All the fine motor skills' practice is paying off!
However now that he as realized he can get up and out in the middle of the night, I am a little scared. What will I find tomorrow morning?
