I exploded today. Poor mum


Mum’s still taking her nappies off at night and hiding them in her blankets and other secret places in her room. I tried wrapping the nappy around her with masking tape to distract her from pulling it off but it didn’t help. All the layers of the protective mats were wet as well as her doona and pillow. Lately, this has been happening daily and sometimes twice a day when she’s had a nap.

I know it’s pointless to get upset and scold her. She really can’t remember. But I guess it takes me time to adjust to a new shift in mum’s functioning.
