It doesn't seem fair that pregnant women are required to do this without the reward of sitting down for a few drinks afterward. Has anyone ever died in a baby superstore while registering - just laid down on the cement floor and given up their will to live?

I can still remember my first trip into "Babies Backwards R Us." There were two entire walls of baby bottles... all different, all touting they are the best. (Talk about "nipple confusion.")

At the time, my wife was struggling with deep depression and had just started medication... and I thought, "You know, could I have a couple of those?"

It is absolutely amazing that they created an industry to care for a baby that weight much less than most of what they sell.

You have no idea. Did you know they make a special garbage can for diapers? What's wrong with the regular garbage can? It's like that comedy bit about if aliens came to earth and saw the way we follow our dogs and pick up their poop and put it in special bags. Aliens would think we worship dogs and babies.

actually, the airtight diaper pail can help... or you can just empty the garbage can every time...
