Our loyal MOC readers may remember back in November when Rachel posted a column called       T-Shirt Parenting: Can it Work?

Well, we decided that it was time to find out. So we’re now in the process of developing our own line of Kiddie T-Shirts With A Message and want all of you to be part of it!

Our friends at, a great source for online toys, have generously offered us this beautiful, amazing, just-what-you-were-hoping-for sand table as the prize for our first MamasOnCall contest!

Come up with the winning, catchy parenting slogan and you’ll be the proud owner of the Step2 Naturally Playful Sand Table, a $70 value.

Send in your idea anytime between now and midnight, January 31. The more creative the better, and of course whatever you send is ours to use.  For examples of what we’re looking for, click on the link to the original post. The winning entry will be decided by your faithful mamas, Ellen and Rachel.

So get to work now, come up with your very best one-liner and get all your friends to play too! Then send your entries in to Ellen at MamasOnCall dot com or Rachel at MamasOnCall dot com (you know we write it out like that so we don’t get spammed to death).
