We’re in full swing potty training mode over here. Well, ok I could be doing better at it but for now we’re taking it slow. Potty training is by far one of the hardest parenting things I’ve had to go through and I can say that since I’ve now had to do it twice. Makenna was a late trainer I would say. She finally used the potty on a regular basis around 3 but didn’t poop on the potty till 4! Yep, 4 years old. It was a hard struggle (no pun intended) that started with constipation and apparently that scarred her for a couple years.
So now I’m onto training Kendall and being the second child it seems like she just wants to take her sweet time. Now that we’ve switched to Pull-Ups I’m hoping this will help our journey along a lot quicker.
What I really want to tell you about is this exclusive toddler-friendly event in Times Square: The First Flush Celebration Times Square Takeover. Pull-Ups is kicking off the New Year with a new high-tech tool to help the approximately 4 million moms who will start potty training this year make the process more fun and easy! The brand has launched a new and exciting app – the Pull-Ups* Big Kid App. It is a fun mobile tool that integrates imagination and reality via augmented reality technology to keep mom and child motivated throughout the potty training process.
To provide extra motivation for Moms and toddlers to start potty training and share their first flush… and every flush after…successes, Pull-Ups is launching a fun consumer call-to-action. Parents can go to Facebook.com/Pull-Ups and upload an image of their tot’s first flush moment for a chance to have their picture posted on a billboard in the middle of New York City’s Times Square, during a larger-than-life celebration on Jan. 29! How cool is that?! In addition, by uploading the photo, one lucky family will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to a world-famous Orlando destination. We already uploaded Kendall’s picture (yes even though we live here. Can you say “Staycation” lol) so hopefully I’ll see Kendall’s picture in Times Square and of course I wanna win the Disney trip!
If you’re going to be in NYC on January 29th keep this celebration in mind because it’s going to be tons of fun. With a giant potty, live performers and a spectacular light-up billboard celebration, parents and tots can experience the excitement first hand as they prepare to celebrate one of the biggest milestones in a child’s transition from baby to Big Kid™ – their First Flush!
