Over the River and Through the Woods Without Losing Your Sanity

Any other time of year, you’d be spending a lot of time organizing a family trip out of town. At the holidays, however, the travel part can be an afterthought.

It was amazing. He felt in total control of the time remaining on the trip.

We recently returned from MOMCON in Milwaukee, where we shared the Time Timer ® with moms from the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International.

 

As a family-based company, all of us at Time Timer ® loved being a part of this year’s celebration of inspiration and faith for moms. Before it was a household name, the  original Time Timer ® was founded in an everyday household in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio.

 

Jan Rogers struggled to help her daughter, Loran, keep track of time. She wasn’t old enough to read clocks and often missed the bus. So, mom Jan invented Time Timer, which features a patented red disk that shows elapsed time.
