POTTY TIME, INC. POTTY WATCH

Toilet Training a Top New Year’s Resolution for Moms with Toddlers


POTTY TIME, INC. POTTY WATCHParents Save Time and Money using Potty Watch to Achieve a Diaper-free New Year

As the holiday season winds down and the New Year begins, we all look for ways to improve our lives and regain control of our finances.  Since the average family will spend about $2,000 on diapers before a child is potty trained, for mothers with toddlers, potty training is a top priority.

“Changing diapers is one of the worst chores a parent faces, and eliminating the cost of diapers is an added incentive for potty training your child,” says Pamela Parkinson, CEO of Potty Time, Inc. (www.pottytimeinc.com) “And with routines getting back to normal, the New Year is the perfect time to start.  The Potty Watch ($9.99) is a fun way to speed up the toilet training process and eliminate diapers once and for all.”

Pamela and her husband Alan invented the Potty Watch after toilet training their four children.  Alan says: “I did the math and determined that by the time our youngest child was ready to start toilet training we had been spending $10-15 a week on diapers for almost 6 years!  January is always our busiest month because so many parents make it their New Year’s resolution to create a diaper-free home.”

The Potty Watch can be set to go off every 30, 60, or 90 minutes.  Lights flash and a song plays, letting your little one know that it’s time to go.  Then the timer automatically re-sets to give you consistent reminders all day long.  The Potty Watch does the reminding so you don’t have to!

Pediatrician Jim Sears introduced the Potty Watch to the viewers of The Doctors on ABC: “I used to tell parents to set an oven timer or some other timer, but this is kind of a cool new thing. The Potty Watch plays some songs to remind the child when it’s time to go potty… It’s cool, and it’s fun. I like it because kids just forget, and this is a fun way to remind them.”

The Potty Watch is available at www.pottytimeinc.com, Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby and over 300 independent retailers nationwide.

My President got married


John, 2

 “1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

   4 “Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

   5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

   6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[b]

   7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

   8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

   They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” Continue reading
