This is one of the reasons I'm not a mommy-blogger:

Or, for that matter, a mommy.

This is a clever way to skirt any pesky regulations about direct marketing to kids, I suppose.

Pull-Ups® Training Pants and Ralph Covert, the singer/ songwriting star of Ralph’s World, have collaborated on a NEW version of “The Potty Dance”. It’s the song and dance craze sweeping toddler nation, to help them celebrate becoming a Big Kid® and reward success throughout the potty training journey.

If chosen as a host, on February 20, 2010, you’ll get to share this dance party experience with your toddler, and all the moms and kids in your life. The kids will learn the fun dance ritual, and the moms will share potty training tips and tricks with one another. Everyone will leave the party one step closer to ditching the diapers for good!

Hosts also get a FREE party pack from Pull-Ups® with goodies to make the party a potty training success!

Host spots are limited. Don’t be late to the potty!

I had a joke about astronaut diapers in mind when I started typing this, but husband just put Star Trek (the new one) in the DVD player and now I can’t concentrate.

Sharing is caring!

I’m a mom and a blogger, but not really a “mommy-blogger” and even I find this marketing plan offensive. I do not want to share a potty training dance party experience with my toddler.

And the new Star Trek is so much fun.

    I still don’t know why I came to their attention. Maybe they just want everyone to blog about the, um, party to generate buzz and they dont care who. Maybe I fell for a nefarious diaper-marketing trap.

    I sort of want a whole bunch of adults out in the street in front of our house doing the potty dance because it sounds like excellent performance art. I’m also on my first cup of coffee, though.

    Star Trek was very fun. I’m glad we finally got around to seeing it.

WOW. I apologize on behalf of my profession. Large, generated media lists go our heads and make us do stupid things.

Also, I totally hear you. I get very distracted when Chris Pine appears anywhere. :-D
