Save Your Life – My Tot Clock Giveaway!


So last week I told you all about how My Tot Clock saved my life, right? Well, I know I told you that My Tot Clock didn’t know that I was writing a post about their product, and they didn’t until I emailed the super-awesome mama and My Tot Clock inventor, Pamela, to tell her just how awesome I thought her product was. She then graciously offered to do a giveaway to a reader! LUCKY YOU!

(P.S. I’m still not being compensated in any way, don’t worry.)

So, to enter to win My Tot Clock (average retail price of $49.95), leave a comment on this post telling me about how you think this will help your little sleeper.

AND, get a bonus entry for telling me your best “nightmare sleep story!”

One winner will be chosen at random.

The giveaway is open to those with a U.S. mailing address.

THE CONTEST WILL CLOSE on Tuesday, September 21 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

If you don’t win, you’ll still have more than a week to buy your own and take advantage of the 20% off coupon code (MTCBIS220) which expires September 30.

  1. Yea!! Contest!! Pick me! Pick me!

    I wouldn’t call my story a nightmare, but I have vivid memories (or should I say groggy memories) of being woken up to, “mom, is it morning?” when it’s pitch dark out. And then when we finally taught her how to read the clock and not wake us up until the first number says 7, being woken up to, “IT SAYS SEVEN!”

  2. I think this clock will help my little man because…. he seems to have a crush on your Bean and if they ever get together later on in life, he’s going to have to know what all these colors mean!

    Fortunately we haven’t had any major nightmares, since our little guy can’t really talk yet, but I think putting up with this teething in the middle of the night is pretty heroic of me. I mean, come on, I stumble to his room at 2am, rock with him until he’s snoring, place him down in the crib ever so gently, crawl back into my own bed, am juuuuuuust about asleep, and then BAM! Those d@mn red lights on the monitor are going crazy and there is screaming emitting from it. SIGH, back up the stairs to his room, and repeat the process about 5 more times…

    He’s lucky he’s so darn cute!!!!

  3. Hi! I work with Amy and she forwarded me the link to your blog – it is hysterical! I can relate to so many things!!! I’ll have to get one of these clocks for both my girls (4 yr and 18 mo)! My 4 yr old still does the I have to go potty 15 times after she’s already gone before she got in bed routine….exhausting! 😦 Maybe the clock would help? My 18 mo old isn’t in a big girl bed yet beacuse I fear what bedtime will be like…right now I have to sit in her room until she’s asleep or endure the hours of screaming if I leave her in her room awake and alone 😦 Mommys should get a medal for surviving the first few years of their children’s lives! 🙂 Not that I would trade any of it…just want a medal! 🙂 Thanks for the laughs!!

    • Hi Lisa, thanks for reading! I think the whole bedtime thing must be the most exhausting part of parenting ever. I never know when to believe the potty trick or not! I think we all should get a medal too! Good luck!

  4. Awesome blog! I’m friends with your cousin, Amy. She sent me your blog link too. My Tot Clock sounds like a dream! I have 2 daughters, 3 yr old and 1 1/2 yr old. My 3 year old has recently decided that 6:30am is her new wake up time! We had a child safety lock on her door but she figured out how to open it!!! Damit! Now I have no way of keeping her in her room until a more reasonable waking hour. I don’t want her to be disruptive and wake up her sleeping sister so I have no choice but to wake up, take her downstairs to play and HOPE my morning chai brings me the energy I need! On days that it doesn’t, I take the easy route by zoning her out in front of the TV while I catch another 30 minutes of sleep on the couch! My Tot Clock sounds like a wonderful solution for both of us! Thanks for posting this contest and the 20% coupon!

    • You’re welcome, and thanks for reading! I feel so lucky to not also have early riser problems. I really hope we don’t encounter that too! And now you’ve got me worried that my 2.5-year-old is going to figure out how to open her gate. OH NO. That would be the end of the world for me!! 😉 Good luck!

  5. Where to start?!? So, 6-weeks ago my husband got back from Iraq and since he came home, my daughter (3) is daddy’s girl TO THE EXTREME! Daddy has to take her potty, take her shoes off-and on, get her dressed, give her a bath, and the worst one-put her to bed! I feel like I have 2 kids (We also have a 2 year old son, but I’m not counting him)! I have to constantly remind him to put her to bed and beg, and beg, and beg. When he finally does, my daughter manipulates him to draw it out. More nights than not, it is 11pm by the time she finally falls asleep! By that time I just want to pass out and the 2 of us have NO quality time together. It is beyond a struggle. I have tried time and again to get her to go right to bed when I lay her down and am just lost! I have tried rewards, stars, treats in the morning, park trips, even visiting daddy at lunch time! I am out of ideas! The Tot Clock would be a lifesaver! I actually bought the Learning Resources Time Tracker and that worked well, but it is only set up for time-outs and not bedtime or naptime. I ended up returning it b/c the one I bought had an issue and never replaced it. My cousins have told me about The Tot Clock before, but I haven’t taken the time or spare funds to devote to ordering one. I had no idea they were so hard to get! This is definitely a must have for our daughter-and will be for our son as well as soon as he learns how to climb out of his crib (which unfortunately at over 2, will be coming any day now I’m sure). He is a pistol! That may be the time when I come to a holiday party with no hair-just wait! Thanks for the great article and the reminder of more kid stuff we need to survive the next several years! 🙂 Ha!

    • Oh-my-gosh Kassie! I had no idea how similar our experiences were! UGH!!! I totally know what you mean about the “no quality time” thing too. That’s how we felt because we would spend 45 minutes going back and forth to her room. I really, really feel for you. Good Luck!

  6. How have I gone all these years as a mother without this clock! What a great idea. Pleae put me in the running! Of course, if their time-outs were really timed I couldn’t stretch them out longer, BUT still totally worth it.

    My best nightmare story? My daughter woke up crying one morning and when I asked her why she sobbed and sobbed over her dream. Someone had pooped in her eye…without asking first.

    She’s nothing if not a slave for manners.

  7. I’m the cousin that recommended the clock. I am having our second baby boy in November. I can’t imagine my 3 year old’s life without his Tot Clock and know a second clock is in our family’s future for that reason! I’ll be starting the baby on it’s magical powers young. 🙂

    Nightmare sleep story: regularly being woken at 4:50something with our at the time 18 month old telling us it was morning! We tried all the tricks to get him to go back to sleep, but once he’d convinced himself it was morning, there was no winning. It sucked. And then, The Tot Clock was found. And we lived happily ever after.

    So I need another one!

  8. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and a 7 week old son. We will definitely be ordering this clock if I don’t win the contest. Since our son was born our daughter is struggling with bedtime and is getting up earlier and earlier each morning when she hears our 7 week old wake up for one of his many nightime feedings. It is exhausting, especially after being up every 2-3 hour to feed my ravenous son!

    I also think this will help with the transition from crib to big girl bed. She has been climbing out of her crib since she was 20 months old and we’ve used a crib tent since then, which works great. I know that the transition to big girl bed will be difficult but sounds like this clock could help!

    Fingers crossed!

    • Jessica, thanks for reading and good luck! I can relate all too well to the difficulties in transitioning to the big girl bed! Argh. And congratulations on your new baby boy!
