Doing Potty Training Right Thanks to Kandoo Flushable Wipes!

And then you have the parenting situations that play out in slow motion. Like when your kid’s about to fall and smash their head on something hard. Or when they’re about to break something you can’t afford to replace!

But for me, one moment that happened recently was my two-year-old’s ill-timed attempt to enter the tub while a little something emerged from his bum! Fortunately, I got there right in the nick of time, scooping the offending material with a wipe so we could avoid further disaster, but that’s just the thing about parenting—you’ll never need as much as the world says you will, but when you do need something, you need it!

And that’s especially true for something like Kandoo Flushable Wipes, offering little hands precisely what they need to clean themselves up to 30% better than they would with regular toilet paper.

Kandoo Flushable Wipes — Because Potty Training’s Already Frustrating Enough for EVERYBODY.

That’s right—the cat’s out of the bag—for the rest of 2018, I’m joining the Kandoo Kouncil, a team of parent content creators always looking for better ways to do everything we do anyway.

And on this council, the name of the game is potty training.

Level Ups with Pampers Easy Ups — Getting Aware of the Better Way to Underwear!

Potty training is a pain in the butt.

Pun totally intended.

I’ll look back at this in the future and laugh, but I have a stubborn toddler refusing to do away with diapers. We’ve tried it all—using a sticker chart to reward every #2; promising every Paw Patrol toy under the sun if only he’d learn to use the toilet… even jealousy by putting his baby brother on the potty for some elimination communication, but nothing’s quite stuck.

But we can’t just give up—diapers aren’t a good look for kindergarten kids, so we’ve got just under a year to help him say the magic words:

“I’m ready for underwear!”

See, the transition from infancy to childhood need not be so difficult—parenting in 2016 offers so many options, and Pampers takes full advantage of this with their brand-new Easy Ups training pants—the better way to underwear!

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 2 — My Toddler, Me and a Little Cloud b!

Hey there Internetland, and welcome to the second installment of a Case Cringle Christmas, where I find cool stuff to give away, but you get it after Christmas, since everyone needs a pick-me-up once those credit card statements come in, amirite*?!

Since I’m a bit of a blogger sans niche, you can expect all sorts of things with my Christmas giveaways — yesterday we introduced the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3 for you folks in need of a new smartphone, but today we’re taking things in an entirely different direction!

As the blog’s grown in 2015, I’ve become all too familiar with our Purolator, FedEx and UPS distribution centres from the packages I miss while at the 9-5**.

I’m used to stuff coming through the door for me to give away and review, but as my brand starts maturing into a family blog, I’m discovering that my #BloggerLife’s beginning to impact other members of my household as well.

The Week That Was… October 11th -17th, 2015

I struggled a lot with this week’s The Week That Was, trying to get in the right headspace to write on everything that happened. These seven days weren’t extraordinarily good nor bad — with how hectic my life usually is, you could even call them tame. I burned through page after page trying to get it right, but I couldn’t get it flowing like I wanted — a story worth reading for an audience that expects as much of me as I do of myself wasn’t within grasp, no matter how much I hustled.

But just because something’s hard doesn’t mean you don’t do it — sometimes you just need to find another approach to getting your story across!

I mean, seriously — when some of your mornings start off like this, would you want to write about it???
