In my limited experience as a parent, I have come across some amazing products about which I wanted to shout to the world, “BUY THIS!”
Every now and then I will highlight products that I love and hopefully you will, too!
Let’s begin with the Teach Me Time! clock from American Innovative.
Does your kid call for you at some ungodly hour in the morning asking if it’s daytime? Then this clock is for you. Yes, I’ve heard about the cost-effective digital alarm clock method where you place a piece of masking tape over the minutes and leave only the hour in view. Unfortunately, you will learn that when it comes to kids’ products, I sometimes tend to go the less-cost-effective route.
Around the time that Ryan turned 3, I was looking for something cute for him that would send a clear signal that it’s time to wake up and call for Mom and Dad. He was consistently getting up around 7am but then began waking earlier and earlier and we thought, how nice – let’s put a stop to that.
Enter my super research skills and online shopping addiction.
Perfect – this clock will turn from yellow to green when it’s 7:04 a.m. (our agreed-upon time). I can justify the purchase because it doubles as a teaching tool!
The result? Worth every penny. If Ryan wakes up too early, he either falls back asleep or talks quietly to his stuffed animals until…
“Mommy, it’s 7:04! It’s green!”
The day begins.
