GoodNites Bedtime Theater Giveaway

By Shannon Gosney
In Giveaways
April 14, 2010

Potty training is a long process but rewarding in the end.  As our young ones learn to go potty during the day, accidents can happen at night.  That’s where GoodNites come in handy.  GoodNites are disposable sleep pants for kids who wet the bed.  GoodNites has sponsored a Bedtime Theater for kids and their families. 

What is Bedtime Theater?  It is a series of 20 audio stories that follow the story of a boy named Iggy as he embarks on wild adventures with his Wiggy Bed, building self-confidence along the way.  The stories give families a great opportunity spend time together before bedtime and wind down at the end of the day.  You can download stories for free at

Plus, through April 15th, 2010, families are encouraged to visit to enter the Iggy’s Next Adventure contest by creating and sharing their own adventure for Iggy for a chance to win $2,500!  This ends April 15th, so check it out now!


I think this is a great way to spend time as a family in the evenings.  I like to read to my boys in the evening before they go to bed.  Iggy’s adventures are cute and enjoyable and look forward to seeing what adventure wins the big contest!


1 lucky reader on The Mommy-Files will win a Bedtime Theater Kit (valued at $175).  The kit includes an iPod shuffle, $25 iTunes Gift Card, Brookstone Cuddle Blanket, Patagonia Bag, and Logitech Speakers!!!

    I learned, about a year into going back to work, that my kids needed a “snooze button”. I didn’t need to let them sleep as long as possible and rush them around. I needed to wake them up more than once to help them wake up. They also went to bed at 8:30 and if some psycho coach thought they should be practicing, too bad. We went home. There wasn’t a pennant riding on it.

    My wife *usually, unless the kids request me* will read a chapter of the book we’re currently reading (Magic Treehouse Series!). Then its hugs / kisses / eskimo kisses / hand squeezes. Then we spray the room with monster stay-away potion (water, got the idea from an episode of gullah gullah island).

    Then we turn on their Kenny Loggin’s cd and they are asleep within minutes!

  532. Marc says:

    Yea, the routine is I’m routinely wrong. I try reading before I go to bed, but I usually get tired while reading … so I think I’ll just take a quick few minute rest and get back to reading. Unfortunately, I always fall asleep with the light on. I know I should just go to bed, but I always think I can control the situation. Stop me before I mess up again!!

  533. Becky says:

    We have reading time and cuddle time before bed..

    We have a very specific bedtime routine. First we kiss goodnight and then put our cup in the fridge (and at almost 3 – we do it By Ourself!!! because we are “big” now). Then we brush our teeth and go potty. Then we read a book and tuck the sheets in “just right”. Usually, my daughter then says she has to go potty again….so we have to redo the blankets. Then a kiss from mommy and lights out.

  569. Brittany says:

    We read a book, say prayers, and brush our teeth. Then we tuck the kids in. It isn’t very long but if we try to do anymore we’d never get our kids in bed.
