good times.

good-times.jpgNot those good times, the good times we are having now that Jen is getting out of the “sick” phase of being pregnant. The 2nd trimester really is a blessing after suffering her way through the first one. She is feeling tons better, and is getting her energy back. But dont be fooled by our good fortune, Jen still says she has no intention of going through this again. And you know what? ive looked into her eyes and i believe she is serious. If i want baby after this one, she tells me ive got two choices: adoption or kidnapping.

going green = losing green!

i-went-green.pngAs if the stresses of becoming a parent arent enough, weve been reading a lot lately about “going green” in regard to the baby. You start reading about all the things that can harm your baby, and after a while you start wondering if anything is good for your baby. So we looked into some organic cotton clothes for the baby: 1 organic cotton onesie, $24.95. Yeah, thats practical, because we all know how slowly babies grow. 1 pair of organic cotton baby socks? $7.95. THATS FOR ONE PAIR OF INFANT SOCKS. Thats like 4 dollars each. And environmentalists wonder why more people dont go green. I dont mean to go off on a rant here, but I saw Ed Begley Jr. on The Dennis Miller Show about 10 years ago, complaining about how few people drove hybrid vehicles. Dennis told him “want people to buy hybrids? stop making them look like hybrids. Start making them look like Porsches and they will sell like hot cakes.” To me its similar with environmentally friends baby items. Want parents to buy them? Try and price them so that parents can buy them.
