Cloth Diapers: To Use? Or Not to Use?

2 December, 2008 | Posted by Marvyn

For the past few days, I have considered following the yellow brick road towards clothe diapers. And why not when it saves you a considerable amount of money compared to disposables.
everytime I wash shirts, they shrink and get shorter, which I hear is the common reaction to all things in cold water
When I suggested this to Mary she gave me the eww face, the same face everybody makes when seeing two girls and a cup for the first time. Thoughts after the jump...(Regarding clothe diapers, not two girls and a cup)

I Shall Call Him…Mini Me

28 November, 2008 | Posted by Marvyn
I know one day when Jagger is taking a bath, he's going to discover the little appendage between his legs. He may poke, pull, touch it many times out of curiosity, but now I'm going to have to provide a child safe name for it. Every family has their own little name. What was yours? More after the jump...

What’s on the Telly?

24 November, 2008 | Posted by Marvyn

My niece grew up watching my mom's collection of clamshell Disney movies. While this is great for my niece, I'm not so sure I would want my boy to watch any female oriented animated movies. Case in point, my cousin knows the words to Chef Louie's song in the Little Mermaid as he was shockingly exposed during one of our Scene It marathons. Not exactly something that every red blooded male American father wants for his pride and joy. More after the jump.

Co-Sleeper vs. Pack N Play

24 November, 2008 | Posted by Mary

When my darling husband informed me that the nursery would be in the 3rd bedroom(which is farther from our bedroom and because he plans on getting rid of the 2nd bedroom), I instantly knew that the baby would not be sleeping in there at night. There was no way I was going to be comfortable with that. If anything happened I would want to get to the baby as quick as possible. So I had to decide as to what to put the baby in so he can stay in our room at night. There was no way I was going to put his crib in there, it would have been to big. So I asked around and researched as to which one we should get, Co-Sleeper or Pack 'N Play. More after the jump...

The Age Rules

22 November, 2008 | Posted by Marvyn

I've been discussing the age rules for a while with family/friends and I thought I'd put this to writing somewhere. What are the age rules you ask? It's my list of things I would stop doing with/for Jagger at certain ages. I just feel it would get a little odd at that point that it should be stopped. More after the jump...

We’re Expecting a Boy!

Mary suffered from a little dehydration while we were away with the family. So much for my attempt to keep Mary hydrated, although I did my part in carrying the water. We quickly visited the nearest hospital, an intimidating experience for anybody in a foreign language country. Read on about our little adventure. Video and more after the jump...
