How Funky is Your Potty?

boon_potty.jpg Think you have all the latest gadgets? The July/August 2006 issue of Cookie Magazine features a potty that looks like an iMac. The Boon Potty Bench is available for $29.99 at TargetTarget or Amazon and features side storage for supplies, pull out drawer for easy clean up, toilet paper holder, splash guard for the gents, and best of all: the “large, sturdy bench can support up to 300 lbs.” Whoa. That’s one sturdy toddler.

Biscuit Bliss

healthytimes_teethingbiscuits.gif Distraction is a masterful tool in the mama arsenal. When your babe next experiences teething pain, try Healthy Times’ Premium Organic Biscuits. These kosher hard baked teething biscuits satisfy baby’s need to bite down, dissolve slowly, and are soy-, wheat- and dairy-free. Pick up a box at your local Whole Foods Market; alternatively, vanilla or maple are available at Amazon. Have a camera ready for cute photo ops. Our 7.5 month old spent nearly an hour (I kid you not) working on her first biscuit; by the end she was a very happy and messy baby – teething woes were long forgotten!

Pillow Talk

pier1_loft21pillow.jpg Nothing dresses up a room and hides baby-induced stains quicker and more economically than throw pillows. Pier 1 Imports has a dizzying array of eye-popping pillows, such as the fresh and fabulous Loft 21 Floral Pillow (shown). This pillow is priced at the higher end of Pier 1’s collection ($30), but you can snatch up sale pillows for as low as $5-10. Head over to a local store, or check out the collection online; the online search engine (keyword: “pillows”) also leads you to coordinating décor selections.

Dishing up Dinner

logo_letsdish.gif One of my fabulous mama friends recently passed along the dish on Let’s Dish, a super fun, stress-free way to get dinner on the table. In just two hours, create a fleet of freezer-ready meals, or order meals online for pickup. Choose between 8- or 12- dish packages (each dish serves 6 people) at an in-store session, or split a package with a friend. Confirm current pricing with Let's Dish, but at the time of this writing, the 8-dish in-store package was $160 ($3.33 per serving); the 12-dish package $200 ($2.78 per serving). Looking for a novel mama's night out or baby shower idea? You also can host a private party fee-free. Each guest (including the host) select and pays for her/his own dishes; if more than 12 guests attend, each guest receives an extra party dish free. You can find Let’s Dish in Burlington (82 Mall Road, behind the mall, next to Starbucks) and Newton/Needham (238 Highland Avenue, on Newton side of the 128 intersection). An Arlington location (1398 Mass. Ave, next to Panera Bread in Arlington Heights) is forthcoming.
