Having set up not one, but two, betting pools on this site — where we all bet on when my children would be born and whether they would weigh more or less than the cats (we’re sentimental like that) — it should be no surprise that I’m a fan of the new ABC game show “Bet On Your Baby,” in which parents try to predict their toddler’s next move (something I try to do every day, to no avail). So, for example, a mom will bet on silly things, like whether her two-year-old son can carry a glass of water through an obstacle course without spilling half of it (heck, I can’t even do that) and, at the end of the show, the five competing families return to play for the chance to win $50,000 towards a college education for their child. Even more fun: As part of The Laughing Stork’s ongoing partnership with Luvs (you may remember their hilarious videos that I posted here), who is sponsoring the show, I am going to be live-Tweeting the show from my personal handle, @CandyKirby, on Saturday at 8PM PST.
So put the kids to bed early tomorrow night, check your local listings, grab a large glass of wine (hey, it’s been a long week) and join me for a chat about the show! I’ll be using the hashtag #Luvs1Kid2Kid. Hope to “see” you there!
Disclaimer: This post is indeed sponsored by Luvs. But the longstanding passion for betting on babies is all my own.
Pregnancy and summertime: they go as comfortably together as skinny jeans and Thanksgiving. Having been heavily pregnant in the summer, with both of my kids, I know firsthand just how unpleasant it can be to waddle around in 80- to 90-degree temps with a nearly 10-pound butterball attached to your middle. However, contrary to popular opinion, there are advantages to being pregnant in the warmer... more

Hilarious Toddler Tells Dad She Doesn’t Need Help with Buckling Her Car Seat — and to “Worry About Yourself!”
My mornings usually involve begging my three-year-old to buckle herself into her car seat while I get her younger brother’s — but, no, that would be way too efficient so she refuses in favor of doing something more important, like gazing into space while waiting for ME to do it — so I appreciate this two-year-old’s desire to get the belt herself. And, of course, her spunk (and initial politeness). (Fun game of the day: Find a way to work “WORRY ABOUT YO’SELF!” into conversation.)
In fact, Dad may want to start sleeping with one eye open.
