Huggies commercial funny on so many levels

Once you have a baby boy you will come to understand the power of the water hose.  I have a great personal story from first days of my son’s life. My Mother-in-law [MIL] has two children one being my wife and the other being my brother-in-law (he has a child that is 5 days older then Marc). She was able to spend a little time with him before coming to New York for our child Marc.  She was our baby nurse (for lack of a better term). It was the second day of being home when a scream came from Marc’s room. My MIL screaming (in that funny yet upset way) He pee’d on me… I walk into the room to find her shirt covered in pee and seeing her have a look of disgust on her face (since a little actually got in her mouth). It was a rolling on the floor laughing moment for me (not so much for her). Today we still kid about it… ...  [ read more ]

Fight the stink with a new pail

I should start off by saying that in no way am I getting paid for this product review and I actually paid for the pail myself at Babies R Us.

Being a parent is tough stuff and the fact that half our apartment smelled like day old doo wasn’t helping.  We had another diaper pail for the last 16 months and it really didn’t cut it (well it smelled like someone cut it) but every 3 days no matter what I was changing the pail, sometime if it was a bad one we would have to empty it that very night. I was wasting a ton of money on the refill plastic. As I had to hand tie off the bottom and then the top each time. ...  [ read more ]

Conan O’Brien Says No to Following Leno

Conan O’Brien is taking a pass on his 45 million dollar contract to do the right thing.  I’m sure this will be talked about for weeks (ok maybe just a couple of days) but I actually sorry to see this happen.  Conan is a good guy and I one day hope to interview him in the 5-10 question segment I’m hoping to start.  He clearly adjusted his life to LA (which I was more upset about then him coming a direct competitor to David Letterman). ...  [ read more ]
