So what do we think of this Daddy’s Little Project Diaper Bag? It is designed to look like a tool belt, with a ton of pockets, and comes with blueprints on how to change a diaper.
Now, a diaper bag is just a bag you put diapers in, so clearly this is all about marketing. Some people — like Amelia, whose guy friend owns one — think the toolkit diaper bag is totally cute. [Cute enough that, made for "men" or not, I would want one for myself. -- Editor] Others — like me — see how it’s a cute product, but also think it’s as annoying/offensive as the pink-ification of products to signify they’re “for women.” I mean, diaper-changing blueprints? Men aren’t stupid. Keep reading »
Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend David Burtka are pretty much the cutest couple ever. And so we were thrilled to read on Neil’s Twitter page this weekend that they’re gonna be papas. “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall,” he wrote. “We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled.” The two are becoming parents via a surrogate. And since they happen to look, oh, almost exactly the same, here’s hoping that they get two little blue-eyed, dimpled tykes who can also act, sing, and dance like no one’s business. Keep reading »
A few years ago, I jokingly declared that I would refrain from reproducing until after my 10-year college reunion. That way, I said (again, facetiously, although of course I’d be lying if there weren’t a tiny grain of vain truth to all this hilarious jokery), I wouldn’t have to worry about losing baby weight or having to remain sober as the Georgetown Class of 2001 reconvened. It wouldn’t be a concern whether some liquor might damage Junior, or Junior’s breast milk supply, and my 100 percent hot, completely flawless body would remain pristine until that date and, obviously, if everything went according to my imaginary plan, everyone would say, “Oh there’s Claire — she looks so great!” (Anyone who’s seen “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” knows this is Goal #1, with actual success to brag about being Goal #2, and perhaps having fun and seeing people you like being a distant #3.)

In a new post, “The Older Child,” blogger Heather Armstrong, better known as Dooce, seems to suggest that her eldest daughter no longer wants her mother to blog about her, at least not without her permission. Which begs the question: Should so-called “mommy bloggers” be able to blog about their kids without their kids’ permission? Keep reading »
My ovaries hurt last night watching the premiere of “19 Kids And Counting” on TLC featuring Michelle and Jim Bob and their army of children. Even though baby Josie, the latest addition to the Duggar clan, was born four months premature and they have been nursing her to health (she can’t poop!), Michelle and Jim Bob don’t plan to stop their marathon baby-making. They want number 20. “That would be wonderful! We would love another person to add to our family. We will wait and see and take it one at a time,” Michelle announced. No rest in sight for that weary womb. [Radar] Keep reading »
