Jake and the Neverland Pirates Coming to a Mall Near You!

so cute and such a catchy theme song!

Two posts in one day? Yes, I'm that person. But, if you live in the Los Angeles area and have kid who loves Disney's Jake and the Neverland Pirates, this is a must attend event. Here's info:

Disney Junior Story Magic celebrates storytelling and kids' creativity with Story Pirates in a live interactive sketch comedy performance at the Westminster Mall on Saturday, July 28 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at Macy's Court.  The Story Pirates will weave ideas from kids in the audience into a fun interactive story.  Kids will receive "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" bandanas. 

Moms, what is your child's favorite cartoon of the moment?

Adventures in Potty Training with Pull-Ups

Pull-Ups has a few new potty training tricks on their revamped site that are definitely worth a share. Amongst the preschool crowd, there are still kids that are having a bit of trouble remembering to go, or having a totally dry night. These tools are a big help.

Log on to and check these features out:

Potty Break Timer: Download the Potty Break Timer for your Mac or PC and track when your child is due for his next trip to the potty. You can also run the program on their site, so no downloading required unless you want to. Choose from Minnie Mouse or Lightning McQueen themed clocks. This was my son's biggest problem. He was totally potty trained, but he sometimes got lost in play and forgot to go. This lead to many accidents.

Pull-Ups Character Calls: Ah, the advantages of growing up in the digital age  and getting a call from your favorite Disney character to remind you to use the potty and congratulate you on your potty training journey. I can't imagine anything more exciting for a toddler.  Choose from Mater or  Cinderella. My son, like many other boys, is a big Mater fan.

Moms, what are your favorite potty training tips?
