Holy MILF traffic, batman!

It seems I have to add the farked tag to my month-old post, top 10 most ridiculous baby products.

Hello to my fellow Farkers, all 13,000 (and counting) of you who have visited in the past four hours! You guys rule. And hello to the several thousand other visitors who are coming from random baby message boards and whatnot. I'd love it if you stuck around for a while.

And yes, I still think the leash is ridiculous and sadistic. You can email me all you want. I won't change my mind.

  1. Jeeze, they really swarmed out to comment, didn't they?

    Leash vs. no leash. Well, who cares as long as someone else's kid doesn't bother me. Tie 'em to your pigtails for all I care.

    Brilliant blog, Matt.

  2. I hope you inform these "MILF"s that even though it may be "obvious" to some of them that you don't have active children close in age, but the truth is, you have FOUR. Extremely. Active. Children. Very. Close. In. Age.

    And we still don't use leashes!

    *sticks out tongue*

  4. Matt, your so popular..is it still cool for me to sit by you at lunch? rofl. OMG people get a grip. I had 4 very close in age as well and used the leash once. On the oldest. Who looked at me, laughed, and promptly took it off.

  5. bk30, that reminds me of when our eldest was getting into the VCR. I bought this VCR contraption to keep him out. It finally came in the mail, I was so excited. He watched me put it on, crawled to the VCR, and pulled that sucker right off.

  6. I still need to scrape off the sticky stuff where the fridge-door closing Velcro-like-hook-and-loop-fastener product used to live.

    Oh well, it bought us peace for a month or two. And postponing the inevitable is what life is all about, after all!

    That said, I'd still use the leash in heavy crowds. They wig me out.

  7. I'm also anti-leash. I bought one once, put it on the poor guy, took a picture and promptly threw it away. I still feel guilty about that.

  8. Funniness! I came via the FARK link and plan on sticking around. I love your comical point of view on ordinary things. The bizarre office stuff, tickle me elmo burned beyond recognition, etc.

    Write on my friend!

  9. What the fark is a farker! Leashes on kids just make me sad, very sad. I have the feeling, though, that people that leash thier kids are probably the same people who let their dogs poop in my yard....

  10. I am one of the swarmed thousand that came to visit because of this post. I came, I laughed, I laughed more at the responses... just want to let you know that I plan on sticking around for a while, too. Dude, you're cracking me up. Keep the controversy coming!

  11. I thought I had an active kid with my first - everybody else thought so, too. We were all so, so, so wrong. I found that out when I had my second - more energy than my first and third combined.

    You can bet I used a harness (sorry - a leash, imo, goes around the neck) with her at the end of my next pregnancy and for a few weeks after my c-section. It was either that, or banish her to the house for almost the entire summer. Luckily, she liked it - if she hadn't, she'd have been stuck indoors.

    If I have another section, I'll probably use the harness with my third, as well. Keeping them safe and happy - without tearing open my stitches - beats hell out of what someone else thinks about it.

    The ones that make me ill are the feeding tube/pacifier combos that attach to a bottle. Blech!

  12. That explains all the referrals on my sitemeter today. All this time I thought that I had said something really meaningful in my comment on that post.

  13. I used to feel the same way about the leash when I'd see it on kids. I was TOTALLY aghast at it, and I commented on it to my friends.

    But now I have a toddler, and I completely understand. I haven't purchased a "leash" yet, but I can certainly see it as something that would help in protecting my child once he starts walking with us through stores or whatnot (I use a stroller for him right now).

    Hmm, which child would a child abductor most likely go for in a crowd? One who suddenly darts away from his parents (like even the BEST parent in the world can always prevent that -- I think not), or one who has a harness that his parents are holding onto?

    You do the math.
