I am here to confirm, that yes, it's true...your child will not go off to college wearing a diaper. But, honestly I was beginning to wonder. With Anna pushing 3 1/2 and not a trace of potty interest, in fact pure disdain, I wasn't sure we'd ever get her separated from the security of the diaper. I started to feel the pressure right around her 2nd birthday as other parents began to exclaim that their child had been potty trained for 6 months already and more and more of her friends began sporting cute character undies to school.
So, Hallelujah, it finally happened. We had tried it all...candy, stickers, toys, staying up with no bedtime, charts, cute undies. You name it, we tried it. One day we were out of diapers, so I even told her if she pee-peed on the potty I'd take her to the Disney Store and she could literally shop her little heart out. I told her she could have the whole store if she wanted, and I meant it. I would have pulled up a semi and loaded mickey after mickey into it if it meant she'd use the potty. But, all the child wanted that day was to go to Babies R Us and get her diapers. Wow, we're screwed.
So, here we are, day 5 and she's doing great. All that needless worry for nothing. So, if your soon to be 3 or 4 yr old is still hanging on to diapers, don't worry! The doctors are right, who woulda thought?...they will not be going off to college in Depends.
