I coaxed Belle into a sleeping bag on the floor around seven am. We both fell sound asleep within minutes. I dreamed we were perched on ladders downstairs. We had the backdoor open, letting the rain in. Belle sat covered in rain. She was naked except for a rain drenched green hoodie. Belle woke me up in the middle of this dream. She needed me up and out of the sleeping bag. She started pantomiming brushing her teeth. I quickly realised she really meant she needed a potty. Belle made several successful trips to the potty all day. We never did anything else.

Belle peed through her waterproof pants and wet the bed at four-thirty this morning. Off went my cotton sleeping gloves and Belle's soggy bottoms! Belle helped me strip the bed and carry the laundry downstairs. I started the laundry and served breakfast at five am. We also colored (I traced Belle's hands and made a peacock from them!), cleaned Krishna's litter box and took a sunrise walk around the block. Belle took off running down the street when I filled a watering can for the plants. I found her sitting on her favorite piece of sidewalk about as soon as she sat down. What a morning!
