The Secret of Potty Training..............

Potty Training Secret.. A phone app :0)

You won't believe how great this is!! New from Kimberly Clark-- a FREE app called iGO Potty. Parents can adjust the frequency of potty reminders throughout the day. Then children receive special calls from "Patty the Potty", letting them know its time to "go".

iGo Potty also offers digital rewards such as stickers and games to keep kids motivated. After a set number of successes are achieved, the app unlocks access to new rewards and games! There is also a diploma to print out when you are finished. This is too cute!

Other Phone Apps available:

  • Other Potty training apps include Potty Stats (Droid) $1.99, which tracks dollars you've saved on diapers
  • It's Potty Time (iPhone) $.99 with a catchy potty tune
  • I Love Potty Training (iPhone) $2.99, with interactive e-books

Why Not Make Cake Pops instead of Cake For Your Next Party?

I know that between my son and I we share Summer birthdays. My graduated toddler just turned "6" on June 15th. My birthday is around the corner..... I forget how old I am going to be..LOL I found this recipe for cake pops and I loved it and wanted to share it with all of you! It changes things up from a traditional cake... Enjoy and Happy Birthday to all of the Summer Toddler Birthdays.

Cake Pops

original concept and recipe by Bakerella (can be shared with kids 24+ mos*) *Note: This recipe is for older toddlers


  • 1 box cake mix, I suggest Naturally Nora Click Here! or a homemade 13◊9 sheet cake, any flavor
  • 16 oz frosting, I suggest 1 box of Naturally Nora Frosting Mix Click Here! if not homemade, whatever flavor goes well with your cake
  • 1 package chocolate bark or candy melts, any color*
  • decoration of your choice, e.g., non-pareils, edible glittler, jimmies*

What You'll need:

  • 4″ lollipop sticks
  • a styrofoam block, optional
  • wax paper or parchment

What To Do:

  1. Bake your cake according to package directions or recipe. Allow to cool completely. Many say overnight is best, though I didnít wait that long. Once cooled, break the cake up into fine crumbs. I started with a fork and then worked the crumbs with my hands.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake crumbs and frosting. I did this with my hands. Messier but way faster and easier. You should end up with a very moist mixture that you can roll into balls. This amount of cake and frosting should make about 45-50 quarter sized balls. Place each finished cake ball on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill the cake balls for several hours. (Bakerella says that you can speed this up by putting them in the freezer.)
  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave per package directions.
  4. Remove a few chilled cake balls from the fridge at a time. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the melted chocolate or candy coating and insert into the middle of a cake ball. Now dip the cake pop into the chocolate or coating. If you want to create a totally smooth surface, use a deep bowl so that you can submerge the entire cake ball and remove it in one motion without stirring. (Bakerella suggests that you add a few drops of vegetable oil to thin your chocolate or candy coating if itís too thick.) Allow excess chocolate or coating to drip back into the bowl.
  5. Decorate! Depending on what youíre using, you can sprinkle stuff on or roll the still wet candy coated ball in a bowl full of sprinkles or such like.
  6. Allow the cake pop to dry. For best results, place the pop in a styrofoam block. Alternatively, you can place it cake side down on the lined baking sheet. Just keep in mind that, unless you hold the pop until the coating hardens a little bit (it doesnít take too long), this may create a flat spot or smoosh some of your decor. Once the candy coating has hardened, your cake pops are ready to go! If you need to store them, they keep packaged (as in cello bags) on the counter or stored in an airtight container.
