amy sohn (snarky columnist): I suspect it is the husbands who discourage them from working. Because it's the social equivalent of taking Viagra. "What does your wife do for a living?" asks Jeff, the squash partner at the Racquet Club. "Oh, she's at home with our son," says Michael, and then boasts.
mr. nice guy (snarky blogger): dude. the next time i talk to my squash partner Jeff at the Racquet Club i am totally going to try this line because it's like Viagra ... and ... i really want ... to fuck him.
has anyone else had the misfortune of buying a pack of papers cruisers with the crappy mesh lining? seems there's a lot of talk about the swaddlers having two versions. For the record, if you buy cruisers, you run the risk of getting a meshy, leaky, poorly constructed substitue. (mine came in the jumbo $26 box from target)

the formula for success turned out to be:
-a stomach flu which prevented me from putting him down at the breast for a night and made me lose my milk for a few days (it came back, don't worry!)
-changing his routine dramitically during the day to totally mess him up
-reading him stories until he fell asleep in his bed
-and now, just pretending like we are asleep in the same room
it is the best thing ever. thank you to the readers who sent their support during one of the longest, hardest periods of my entire life.
