I am starting to question the wisdom of some of the advice I have been given. Cam-No Contraception-Preston, father of 4 boys, suggested that if I do a lousy job of installing diapers, Kim will get frustrated, and do them herself. I tried his plan, installed the diaper in a haphazard fashion, and was carrying Poco the pooping machine, back into the kitchen when the plan backfired in the worst possible way. Wee Eck had a power poop. The kind that blow out the top of even a well installed diaper. We both required significant clean up. Thanks Cam.
Apparently there is to be a baby shower tomorrow. Much to my surprise, I discovered that this was a little different from a baby bath, or the showers at the Fraser Arms Hotel. This one involves people bringing presents for Eric, which is cool. Just in case people are confused about what to bring, I figured I should lay down some guidelines.
1)It is NOT acceptable to give any clothing with ears or frilly things. Forcing a small child to wear such items can scar them for life. The next thing you know they will be going to Cher concerts, because they just adore her outfits...... See the pictures of Elton John and George Michaels to the right.
2) It is never too early to start stocking the fridge with beer or the cabinet with a good bottle of Scotch. Any such items will be put on a 90 day rotation, to ensure they are at their optimum freshness, when Eric comes of age.
3) The Keg Steakhouse has an excellent baby Menu. Eric will enjoy the steaks. Lobster Madness month is coming soon.
4) Signed race car or pro sports memorabilia is always a hit at a baby shower.
5) Gifts from Victoria Secrets may cause another sibling to happen. Give the gift of life.
As a diversion from Eric, I took Steve and David out for a ski. Needless to say it ended badly.......
