Gutsy gifts

Our kind relatives and friends have already given Lil' Genghis a good bit of clothing, which mom is now thinking she needs to get washed before she (the smaller one) wears it for the first time.

This being mom, of course, the baby clothes were delicately folded and stored. Then she sorted out the 0-3 month stuff. Then she looked at it. Made cooing noises. Carefully folded it again. Placed it gently into a hard plastic container. Gently stacked it in. Shooed away girldog when she tried to take a curious sniff. Delicately put the lid on the laundry box.

And all that was so she could take it to the laundromat.

Then there's dad. He got an e-mail from his old buddy Aunt Sharon, whose sister is called Sharon as well, but let's not go there right now. Aunt Sharon is expecting a Genghis of her own, which means she's browsing the products of the Baby-Industrial Complex. Along the way, she stumbled upon this link, for the 10 most ridiculous products for babies. She sent it on to dad; the accompanying message, in its entirety:
I hope these items don't make it to either of our registries....
Well, she can keep hoping for her sake, but, damnit, dad liked it.
Thanks, pal. =)


  • At least you're not going for the baby toupee or the bathtub that looks like a salad bowl!

  • You know, Su, I went through that link to check it out. Creepy. That stuff of breastfeeding for daddys... And the Zaky Pillow. Me opening the door of a baby's room and looking at those zombie hands, and the baby... What's wrong with these people, Su?!
