The Princess and the Pee

Peeing the bed. It happens.

Yeah, I used to pee my bed as a kid. Thankfully. that habit ended when I hit about 10 years old.

But girls have slumber parties and sleep over at their friends’ houses. Sometimes they have sleeping bags. Sometimes they share a bed. Once, I was at a friend’s house and we slept on her cushiony, four-poster bed. It was made for a princess! So high, so fancy!

We giggled, told scary stories, and drank cherry Kool-Aid.

And then.

I awoke the next morning to discover I had peed the bed. Her bed. Like, all the way through. All the way through that fancy, cushiony mattress.

Then she woke up. And I did what all smart (and guilty) nine-year-old’s would do.

I denied it.

How about you? Want to comment about a funny or not-so-funny pee story?

I’m hanging out with the YeahWrite folks here (and am trying not to pee the bed anymore). Check out other nifty bloggers here!

Well…… there was a time when this story wouldn’t have made me cringe. That was about 8 years ago. My 7 year old has potty issues. 4 years, 2 doctors, 3 specialists, and a special physical therapy that was an hour and a half a away later…. She pees herself because she doesn’t want to stop what she is doing and get up to go to the bathroom. So, please don’t get me wrong. I’m not poo poo’ing your story. It’s cute and it happens every weekend all over the world. For me it is a reminder of a horrible woman that sent me an email telling me that my daughter had peed on her daughters bed. She said we are horrible dirty people. That my daughter was no longer welcome in her home. That was a year ago February. We are still struggling, and I wish I had an answer. But I don’t. My princess pees. (LOL)

OMG…I’m so sorry to hear that that woman was such a meanie. I think I just may go over there and pee in her flower pots.

I wish you luck in finding a solution for your princess.

Take care,

Alright, I share an embarrassing pee story about myself (not about my kids, because they have done pretty well with not peeing the bed for a long time).

I was at a neighbor’s house and was about 4 or 5 years old. We got to watch TV there and Tom&Jerry was on and I had to pee so bad, but just could not go, because Tom&Jerry was on, you know.
Well, in the end there was a little wet spot on the couch, I barely made it to the toilet with the rest of it and of course I denied everything as well 😉

One time in junior high I pooped in a friends toilet and clogged it. I too denied it even though we were the only two in the house and she obviously knew she wasn’t guilty.

Bahaha! That is so funny! I have clogged many a toilet. And one was in a bathroom with carpet…yikes!

As a parent with many kids over to play, I’ve had a couple of toilets clogged. One time, the water gushed all over the hall. I have gotten pretty handy with a plunger!

Thanks for sharing,

Not the couch! 🙂 But how could you miss Tom & Jerry? 🙂

I think we all have these stories. It’s good to, uh, get it out. Ha!

My kids, especially, love it when I share my goof-up stories. #relatable

Thanks for sharing,

I just wanted to chime in and say that you and your family are better off without judgmental people like that in your lives! What a terrible experience.

My sister had a stage where she wet the bed frequently because she had grown so much in a short period of time and her bladder hadn’t quite caught up yet. It eventually righted itself and I hope that your daughter gets some relief and answers soon.

You are so funny and brave. I love how it seems that no topic is off limits to you! 🙂
I don’t have any pee stories to share about myself, but they are fun to read.

That is the best comment ever!


Not pee. Not poop. But a noxious smelling fart. I was in a single stall bathroom with a girlfiend getting ready for a waitressing shift. I had just come back from backpacking around India and picked up a nasty bug that made my farts smell like rotten eggs and sulfur had a baby. My friend was all, “damn! What’s that smell” Me: “I don’t know, but that is disgusting!” She must have known it was me because we were the only people in the room. But since it was such an unearthly odor, I might have had some cover…

You’re so right! Pee happens and sometimes it’s out of your control.

Best wishes!

How embarrassing! Funny how kids will deny things even when there is an overwhelming amount of evidence!

Funny story. I remember having a short period where I wet the bed too. It was embarrassing. My mom said my older brother did it too, and the Dr’s told her to make him hold his pee during the day for as long as possible to help “stretch” out his bladder. This was back in the late 50’s so I’m not sure if that is sound medical advice these days, LoL.

Thanks for sharing.

I still remember the horror of embarrassment of the soaking, warm sheet!


Bahahaha! Too funny! And by your description, I can totally smell it from here!

Thanks for writing!

Aw, pee happens. Thanks for sharing your story! Interesting medical advice. 🙂


Darn it when other people sneak in, pee on a friend’s bed, and leave you to deal with it! So how did you get out of it? Was anybody buying it?

I remember the family pretending they didn’t even notice and it was waffles for breakfast. But I felt bad all these years later that I left a Pippi pee stain!

Thanks for asking!
