If you have been following my last thread, "Had a great vacation", you know about my grandson's ordeal he is having with diapers. Well my wife called our daughter this morning to see how she is doing with her pregnancy, and she got to talking about our grandson (I will call him "D" because I am sure his mother wouldn't want me to be naming him on the internet).
Last thursday was his last day of school which was a short day. Our daughter picked him up and as they came home, she stopped at Wal-Mart for something. As they were walking from the car to the store, D saw a fresh diaper in the parking lot that must of fallen out of a stroller. According to our daughter, he just became fixated on that diaper. She stopped and he did also. She asked him, "you really want to pick that diaper up, don't you?" He just kept his head down looking at it. She said that she wasn't mad at him, just asking him. He looked up at her and with tears in his eyes said, "can I mommy, thats not stealing"? She said, can we go back to the car and talk about it?
Well she told my wife that in the car they had the best communication that they have ever had. D openned up to her about his feelings for the diapers as she never thought he would. As he was talking, she couldn't help but think; why am I keeping something so innocent and harmless as diapers away from him? It is not like he is asking for something really bad or immoral, it is just diapers! Just a form of underwear!!! So why should I not let him have some?
So she asked him, "if I give you a diaper, how would you want to "play" with it?" He said he would only want to have it at nighttime like he was doing before. So she said, "ok, I will buy you some diapers but there will be some rules. You will be wearing it like it is supposed to be worn and not just "playing" with it or putting it in your underwear. But only at nighttime, I will not make you wear it during the daytime. You will use the whole bag of diapers without stopping. And the first time, I will put it on you to teach you how to do it. Because you will be expected to wet it like a diaper is supposed to be used and I don't want it leaking on the bed. So I will be seeing you totally undressed. So how do you feel about these rules"? (she told my wife that she wanted to make the rules like this to try one last time to discourage him if that were possible)
He quickly looked at her and said, "Oh please Mommy, can you buy some for me"? So they went in to Wal-Mart and she bought him some diapers to fit him and even some added things.
When they got home, he couldn't wait for bedtime, which is not like him at all. When the time came, she helped him get undressed and though he was very embarrassed for her to see him naked, she got him diapered. She told my wife the look on his face was a mixture of joy and embarrassment. She got him in bed and he must of had a good night because he didn't wake up as early as he usually does. When he did, she helped him get his diaper off, which was very wet, and he was very joyful all day.
That night, she asked him if he thought he could diaper himself, and he asked her if she could do it again. She knows that he liked her doing it, and she has diapered him every night since.
So it has been 4 nights now, and she told my wife that he seems to be getting more and more excited each night; he isn't embarrassed at all with her diapering him the last couple of nights. So I guess my fears about him being a conformed DL have come true.
She is wondering how he is going to be with the diapers when his father comes home in a month?, that will be interesting. He will probably have used up the first bag of diapers by then, so she doesn't know if he will ask for more with his Daddy home. I will keep you all posted about this.
