It’s Bloggy Giveaways Time Again

Oh, boy! It’s Bloggy Giveaways time again. I can feel my eyes glazing over already. Anyone come up with a strategy yet to find time visit all the fantastic blogs that are participating, and still make sure your kids are clothed and fed?

If you haven’t been by here before, I’m Colleen, wife and SAHM. I have a wonderful husband Dave who’s very busy working full time, going back to school, helping part-time with the family business and singing with a Southern Gospel Quartet. Somehow he still manages to find time to spend with me and our three-year-old son David. (Son is named after hubby.) David is funny, smart and very mischievous. He definitely keeps me on my toes. This blog is my little place to be creative and escape from the Legos and dirty dishes. I’m sure you’re just dying to know more, (she said sarcastically) so visit About Me in the sidebar.

Well, this summer we’re celebrating potty training success around here. It was a rough road, but David seems to have mastered using the potty, at least during the day. There was a time not long ago that I thought he’d be going to kindergarten in Pull-Ups. Just this week we started venturing out of the house with nothing but a pair of BVDs between him and a puddle on the floor in Walmart. No accidents so far. But I still don’t dare leave with out bringing an extra set of clothes for him, just in case. Potty training was definitely the most difficult task of motherhood I’ve tackled so far. Now I’ve got about 10 years of smooth sailing until he hits the teen years.

In honor of David’s success, I’ve got some items to give away to help out those of you who are still in the midst of potty training, or dreading looking forward to it someday soon. First, I have three packages of cloth training pants. There are 6 in each package. They’re brand new, never even opened. They are cotton on the inside and waterproof plastic on the outside. I used these with David after reading that cloth is better than disposable for helping kids know when they are wet. It really did seem to work. I went a little overboard and bought way more pairs than I needed, so that’s why these never got used. They say for 35-38 pounds on the tag, but I think they’d fit kids anywhere from 2-4 T. They are plain white, so boys and girls can wear them.

The next thing I have to give away are Toilet Time Targets. You throw these flushable tissue paper animals in the toilet, then boys “aim” at them. They learn to hit their mark, and you spend less time cleaning up splatters. It makes potty training into “more fun than writing your name in the snow,” as the wrapper says. I have three packages of 100 to giveaway. Again I went overboard and bought too many.

So there will be two winners. One for the training pants, and one for the Toilet Time Targets. Just leave a comment on this post by mid-night August 1st with which prize you would like.Ā  I’ll randomly select the two winners, and notify them by email.

Stop by and visit the weekly Girls Just Wanna Win Swag Giveaway I have going on right now too for a chance to win an eye makeup kit including one full size shadow, two liners and an eyeliner brush from Mixology. That contest runs through August 6. There are also some Bloggy Giveaways going on this week at The Chocolistas, the blog my SIL and I run. She is hosting giveaways at her other blogs as well this week, A Cup of Joy and Comfort Joy Designs.

    Kathy (mom to the Princesses in Disguise)

  40. Claire Says:

    What a fantastic idea for a giveaway! My son will start potty training next year and I would love to try out the training pants (why didn’t I know about those when my daughter was potty training?). Thanks for the giveaway.

  41. Go Amie Says:

  50. EG Says:

    The training pants would be great, thanks!

  51. majellamom Says:

    I would definately go for the training pants! (Since I have all girls, the target practice things really wouldn’t be that great…though hubby might have fun, you never know!)

  52. Meredith F. Says:

    I think that they training pants would be great!

    I would love the training pants. I have been trying to PT my son for three months and have been using underwear. It is such a pain to take off when it is poopy. šŸ˜¦ In the likely even that I don’t win, can you tell me where I can buy some?

  55. Kam A Says:

  57. Suzie G Says:

    I need the training pants for my almost 3 year old. It’s been a battle getting her potty trained and I’m hoping she’ll be done by her birthday in November. The tissue paper Targets are so heat, but I wouldn’t need them since my son is only 5 months old and we have no plans on potty trianing him yet. I’ll have to keep those in mind when he reaches that stage!

  58. Chelsey Says:

    I have a dear friend with 2.5 young boys. I would love to be able to give her the Toilet Time Targets as a gift.

  72. Diana Says:

    lol – loving the targets! What a great idea. My little guy still has a little while before we’ll be using them but I will for sure get them when we do. Not that I wouldn’t mind the cloth training pants – everything I’ve heard about them are wonderful when it come to potty training. I make my own cloth diapers so I’m fully aware of the benefits of cloth!

  73. kiy Says:

    Oh gosh, the potty training days are coming … I am scared! (lol) I’d love to toss my name into the hat for the training pants, since we have a girl I doubt the targets would be useful around here (although, don’t give Emi the challenge knowing her she’d be willing to give it a go!). šŸ™‚

  74. Kristen Says:

    I’d love the training pants! thanks!

  75. Ebie Says:

  82. Sandy Says:

    I am in the midst of training my grandson who is 3, (his mommy & daddy both work). I have never heard of these items, they seem great. I have never potty trained a boy before and it seem just a little harder than training girls.

  83. Andrea Says:

  88. Dad Says:

    When did you ever hear about a child coming to first grade with a
    change of under wear in a bag with a note for the teacher? Or did your
    mother tell you the story about Mrs. Jarvis across the hall in Fairborn?

  89. Alisha Says:

    My little 2 year old is starting early. I am not ready, but he seems to be. He is always taking his diaper off and everytime his brother uses the potty he thinks he needs to.

  115. Alison Says:

    We’re getting close to potty training time, and I’d really like to use these supplies. Thanks for the giveaway!

  116. Shannon Says:

    We could so use the cloth pants. My daughter just doesn’t get it. We even bought the “cooling” pullups, but that was a complete wash, then again, I don’t blame her since it probably just cooled her off in the 105 degree weather we are having in Texas.

    great giveaway, I would love the targets. Thanks for the contest

  126. Katherine Frazier Says:

    toilet time targets – as a single mom this was the hardest concept for me to explain to my son – these would be great for the future training

  127. Julie Says:

    Me! Me! Me! I have a very stubborn 3 year old who doesn’t want to use the potty. I hate the idea of putting him in underwear ’cause that just makes a huge mess. While the targets would be fun, I think the pants would be our best best.

    Count me in for the traning pants! I have twins so I’ll for sure need them!

  152. anna Says:

    I would so love the training pants (with a three year old–next month boy trying to train and a 19 month old little lady “sitting” they would really be handy). NO “pullups” for our little lady due to a latex allergy so a blessing they would be.
    Happy day.

  153. Catt Says:

    I’m still, still still trying to train my son….I’ve wanted to try cloth trainers but just didn’t have the funds to do so. I would love them!!!

  155. Jaden Says:

    I’d love to win these cloth training pants, as my daughter is just about to start potty training! She has already peed on the pot one time, but it must have been a fluke because she hasn’t repeated it. I’m thinking maybe if the cloth help them feel that they’re wet, these could help us transition? Thanks a bunch! jadensmail at gmail dot com

  156. Carla Pullum Says:

    Traing Pants would love to win!

  157. holly Says:

  158. Mara B. Says:

    My kids are well past the point of needing either, however I have a friend that has a 2 1/2 yob that isn’t potty trained, and she has another on the way. If I won, I would give the Toilet Time Targets to her.

  159. Brandy Says:

    The training pants would be wonderful. Thanks.

  160. mindy Says:
