that she's potty-learned.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wild.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wild"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bouncy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bouncy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bouncy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bouncy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Peace.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Peace"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbsup"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bgbounce"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/kid.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="kid">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/diaper.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="diaper"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dog2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dog">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/coolshine.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sunshine"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jammin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jammin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/broc1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Broccoli">:<br><br>
no really. I'm so crazy crazy happy about this. She's 4yo, and we've been pulling our hair out.<br><br>
Then out of nowhere - BAM!! - it's just the way all you wise mamas said. She musta finally been ready.<br><br>
She's been daytime dry for almost TWO weeks now (only one accident, we weren't at home and it was poopy related), is doing better with her poops (she's very very constipated so we don't push the potty learning for the #2's), and.....<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">:<br><br>
we finally relented to her and let her wear panties to bed instead of pull-ups.... and THREE NIGHTS in a row she's been completely dry. Woke up the first night and came into my room and asked me to go potty at 3 in the morning. AWESOME GNARLY SUPERCALAFRAGILISTICEXPIALLADOCIOUS!!!!<br><br>
For real. I was going to freak the flip out if she didn't potty learn soon.<br><br>
But she did.<br><br>
So now I can be one of those mommas saying "just give it time, lay off of her a little, mine didn't PL til she was FOUR but she finally did."<br><br>
*slinking off to find some wood to knock on*<br><br>
(the smilies were for my wonderful, wonderful, amazing DD - she especially likes the dog and the brocolli)

Mine is also 4 (turned on August 19th) and I'm going crazy! We haven't pushed it, but I do ask him a lot if he wants to use the potty. Of course he says NO! My ped said to completely stop talking about it for a month, but we're 3 weeks in and so far, nothing!!<br><br>
I really am starting to worry that he'll start kindergarten in a pull up.<br><br>
I'm glad to hear that you've had success. I know it only makes sense that they will eventually just make the decision, but holy cow!!!! I know kids his age that have been done w/diapers for 2 years now. Sigh...<br><br>
Congrats!<br>

Congratulations! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"> I'm insanely jealous. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
My 3.5 year old has zero interest. None. At all. I've left him alone; I've shamelessly promised all kinds of bribey stuff; I've just put him in underwear (only to clean up lots and lots of pee). I'm at a loss.<br><br>
But now I have hope. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Oh my god, ladies, seriously. You have no idea how relieved I am.<br><br>
Well, you probably do. I know I imagined it, dreamt about it, tasted it, ate it, slept it.... I could barely even OPEN potty learning threads because I was so jealous.<br><br>

Our ds is finally, finally potty-learned also - we were at the breaking point, at our wits end, totally at a loss, and then we just quit talking about it, quit asking if he needed to, and put the potty-seat away. A few weeks later, he got out of the bath and said, "I need to go potty!" From there, it was a week in pull-ups (I know, I know...) at night, and we were totally diaper-free! I am feeling your relief!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

<span>My 3.5 yr old is just started getting interested in potty learning too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
we're still in dipes, but he's doing nakey-butt time at home. Some accidents, some successes.<br><br>
I'm so glad I didn't push him about it and let him start in his own time.<br><br>
nak<br><br>
of course, ds's p-schl doesn't require it, so that helps- some people have more outside pressure. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"></span>

Oh, mama, I'm right there with you! My DS is 4 years, 3 months, and he FINALLY is getting the hang of the potty. He starts Pre-K in 3 weeks. I was so endlessly worried that he wouldn't get there in time.<br><br>
In my DS's case it wasn't a "one day and then he did it" scenario. It's taken a lot of hard work on all our parts to make this happen. But he is finally FINALLY getting there.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I would cry and burn with jealousy when I read those threads! I so know what you're talking about!
