For Anyone Considering a Second Child
Watch Out, Kobayashi

But They're a LIMITED EDITION!

Jason: Here, I got you something.

Amy: YAY I LIKE THINGS.

Amy: (pulls package from shopping bag)

Amy: What the fuck?

Jason: (cackles)

Amy: Jean diapers. You actually bought a pack of THE JEAN DIAPERS.

Jason: You know, for your blog.

Amy: (thinks)

Amy: I get the sense that this could be one of those moments that Ezra will one day point to and say "THAT. RIGHT THERE. IS WHERE SHIT GOT MESSED UP."

Jason: (thinks)

Jason: Maybe. 

Amy: (pulls ridiculous jean-patterned diaper from package)

Amy: OMG THEY HAVE A FAKE ZIPPER FLY ARE YOU KIDDING ME.

Jason: AND POCKETS. DID YOU SEE THE FAKE POCKETS.

Amy & Jason: HA HA HA HA HA.

Amy: We're total cloth diaper snobs now, aren't we?

Jason: Yep. I'll go get the baby.

(For the record, Ezra: While the gimmicky diaper was ALL YOUR FATHER'S IDEA, please note that you cannot blame us for your choice of footwear, as the knock-off Crocs are all you. As in, you dug them out of a box of hand-me-downs, put them on all by yourself, and now scream and tantrum if we ever try to take them off or suggest you wear anything else. Last night you tried to wear them to bed.)

Hee! Very nice :P My friend's little guy had them on the other day, and it just cracked me up.

Diane

Pampers has answered by having DESIGNER ones. With all sorts of prints and they come in a special box! Why? WHY?

Admittedly, I am also a cloth diaper snob, but COME ON. The Pampers were $15 for about 25 diapers, and that is just nutcakes.

I've been saying it for months: These jean diapers are Ed Hardy for babies.

Hope you're saving this one for the future therapist!

Although, he really does that supermodel pouty-thing well.

heidi

ooh, they're so slimming. reminds me of the huggies thong snl commercial.

erin

Teehee! So cute. My 17 month old wears the mickey mouse crocs that were his brother's. They are definitely his favorite - not mine so much since they make his feet all sweaty!

Sprite's Keeper

I love their tag line, "the coolest you'll look pooping your pants". Let us know if he still looks cool when he's really trying them out. :-)

Christine

I'm so disturbed by the fake pockets! That might be a by product of having read all the pro-cloth diapering posts at Alphamom and (at 14 weeks) having an Amazon wishlist that is nothing but Fuzzibunny and BumGenius. And all the little things that you said you use.

I do kind of love the orange crocs though. It could definitely be worse- I apparently went through a stage at Ezra's age where I refused to take off my bright orange winter coat. In mid-July. In the humid 90 degree Michigan heat. We have many pictures of me in the sandbox in it, with friends looking at me like I'm a loon.

Motherhood Uncensored

Right, blame the shoe choice on your kid. Good move.

:)

Amy

I don't think you have to be a cloth diaper snob to think those jeans diapers are just WRONG! They make me think of the super-dark denim jeans with bright gold stitching that my mother-in-law made my husband wear in 1985.

Cobblestone

I'll say it I BOUGHT A BOX OF THOSE.

We are back to normal now but they cracked me up for 90% of the time we used them.

What is wrong with a little parental entertainment in the 22nd month in.a.row. of shining someone elses behind?

ECB

We use disposables and those jean diapers are ridiculous! Every time I see them I think "WTF???" What marketing "genius" thought this up?

Auntie G

Pix are adorable. I don't really see why the diapers are so ridiculous, though -- except that they are more expensive. Clearly part of the appeal of cloth diapers is that they're cute. Why wouldn't the disposable guys try to market different looks for their diapers, too? Of course we all have our own definition of "cute."

Patti

But, are they *skinny* jean diapers? Cause, like... priorities.

Belle

My heart hurts from this frickin cuteness. Please make a video like the commercial. I will love you forever and always.

Devon Wyatt

Thank goodness I get to be the first to say...

"I poo...in blue!"

Heh.

Jo

Ha! Those diapers should be accessorized with a fake mustache. Especially in the last photo. Very Magnum PI.

Lauren

My son wore bright orange croc _boots_ every day for months, and through the summer.

Lara

That may be the cutest thing I've ever seen.

Anyone else think "never-nude" when they see these? :)

So stinkin' cute!

Yes they are completely ridiculous, but so cute! I wouldn't have been able to resist then either.

perl

*snort* Never-nude!

Somebody already said the poo in blue so I get to say this one: so full.....of CHhhhic!

CJ

But we gotta see these from behind!!! That's the funniest angle on those! I haven't managed to find them in size 3 yet, or my son would be sporting them too.

Brandi

Too funny! I love it! The jean diapers and orange crocs are too much! Thanks for the smile and giggles! I needed them!

Nice.

Blue Jean Diapers...$20 a pack

Baby Faux Mullet.... $10

Farmer Tan....Priceless

Jessi

He's totally got the Calvin Klein thing down, though, no?

LibraryChristi

Every time I see these I get a mental picture of what the grown-up equivalent would be...some guy, shirtless, walking down the street in, essentially, Daisy Dukes.

kari weber

No picture of the pockets?!

LibraryChristi

Oh, and...
@Moxie - there *is* Ed Hardy for babies! It's some scary stuff.

Amber McN

Everytime that ad runs on Nic, right when it shows the woman in the sunglasses, before the baby appears on screen, my 22 month old screams "BAAAAAyyyBEEEEE!"

Lar

To really pull off this look, he needs either a mullet or a faux-hawk.

I've never heard of these til now. But they are so cute! And as for the Crocs, imo the smaller the foot the cuter they look.

Alex

Best husband ever!

Marianne

HAH-larious. Omigosh.

And really... he is too cute.

kim

There's something so.... seventies Cosmo....about him. Cute, or scary?

WifeMotherMe

Question:

Have you ever had a reader (a stranger) recognize you and the kids while you were out doing some random non-blog related activity?

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves)

We had some of those diapers (they were sent to me so I can't take the blame entirely). I was actually disappointed that they didn't look more jean-like. They were more like blue diapers with some fake stitching on the side. Still - they worked and that's kind of key when it comes to diapers.

lMnop

Tooooootally looks like Mick as a baby!

As for the orange Crocks....I have a pair just like those :)

Heidi

Although I haven't seen it for myself, my mom tells me that the commercial for those diapers goes something like: "The best you'll ever look while pooping your pants". So they've got that going for 'em, which is nice.

Deanna

All he needs is a rat tail. (And believe it or not, I really am starting to see people wearing those again!)

Jen L.

Oh, mah mercy. :)

Arwen

Ezra is losing all his baby chubs and turning into a boy! My son (18mos) is doing the same, and it is KILLING me. Don't they know they're supposed to stay little?

On the other hand, I think older kids are pretty awesome. I have such a love/hate relationship with the whole growing-up thing.

Jean diapers, on the other hand. Yikes. Ezra makes them look about as good as they can, but count me in the cloth-diaper-snob club over here.

Jenna

I couldn't help myself, I had to buy my little man some blue jean diapers too.

And I hate them. They smell SOOOOO bad when he pees in them. I would rather change a poopy diaper than a blue jean pee diaper. Maybe all the blue dye or something?? I don't know.

Beeeee

I totally admit to buying a pack and laughing every time I put them on my son.

And...to referring to them as his "Thuggies".

Aunt Becky

Well, thank GOD he can finally poo in style!

All you're missing is the creepy music and the stares. Well, if he wears them out in public I'm sure he'll get the stares.

kathy

nothing comes between him and his calvins.

samantha jo campen

He's getting so tall and skinny! I hate to say it, but he looks like a little BOY now and not so much a baybee.

Those diapers make me squirm when I see them in the store. And now the designer disposable diapers for a bajillion dollars? COME ON.

This is why foreign countries hate America. True story.

Jennifer

Love that commercial... "I poo in blue..."

I was considering buying those to humor myself and I don't even have a blog.

Sara

I bought a pack of these for my son - $8.99 for the small pack (just for some pictures!) that came with I think a couple dozen size 4 diapers. I had a $2.00 off coupon that were all over the place when the jean diapers first came out. We tried them for one day and the heavy dye flared my son's excema so bad that he only ever wore one of them! I think the key to them looking more "jean-like" and less "diaper-like" is the fit. The tighter, the more jean looking. My son's diapers were a bit big so it just looked like a blue diaper.

Kati

My CD friend and I cackled when we saw these! I was all, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

Parsing Nonsense

I hate to say it, but they make Ezra look like he's wearing short-short cut-offs, which makes me think of Tobias Funke, which makes me sad for Ezra.

OMG, I cannot believe I missed the totally obvious Tobias Funke Never-Nude joke. I mean, LOOK AT HIM. Somebody revoke my humor card, STAT.

And @WifeMotherMe: Yes, lots of times. It's weird yet fun. And everybody is always super-nice and super-normal. The weirdos must not recognize us.

(And @everybody, I don't know what's up with comments posting four frillion times all of a sudden. Looking into it, though.)

Lesley

Those things should come with a tiny white wifebeater tanktop.

Alicia

My mom wants me to pop out a baby or two for the express purpose of buying some of these ridiculous diapers... Actually seeing a kid in them though kind of gets me on board with wanting them. He looks so cute!

Susan

Never-nude!! Wife beater tank top!! hahahahaha... add the mullet and the Huggies branded beer coozie and you've got the Redneck Yacht Club right there.

I have a photo of Snackbox running through Whole Foods last week in nothing but a red gDiaper and lime green Crocs (I forgot to bring a bib and he spilled milk on his entire outfit). My only regret is not considering the diaper choice when I got him dressed that morning - really, the orange would have been much better; the turquoise would have been stunning.

Jen

He's one pair of Ugg boots, a wife-beater, and a few ratty extensions away from looking exactly like Britney Spears here.

cls

they look a bit like a speedo to me. for babies.

Kate

Too funny! That diaper is awesome. You'll have to pull these pictures out at his rehearsal dinner some day!!!

Moxie Dude

OMG! Too cute!!! (And about those crocks . . . Greg has a pair that he wears IN THE HOUSE; but don't tell him I just made it public information)

Tam.

I had the grouchiest day today, but this post totally cracked me up. Like the throw your head back, read it for a second time, laugh again kind of crack up.

Thanks, I needed that... :)

chantale

Those diapers are so hideous I may buy some for my sil's new one. LOL! (We are all cloth diaper snobs here...) I wonder if they come in newborn sizes?

Kristine

The commercials seriously crack me the f up! "The best you'll ever look going number 2."

Love it!

ccr in MA

They actually freak me out far less on a real baby than they do in that bizarro commercial. The strutting computer baby creeps me out.

I love that Jason is shopping with the blog in mind. You have him well-trained!

Katie

Adorable! And . . . do I spy a farmer's tan on Ezra? CUTE!

Maria

Dude. Tobias. Srsly. Has Jason never watched Arrested Development?

Ezra, on the other hand looks scrumtrelescent as usual.

-k-

LibraryChristi, me too--and I realized that the adult equivalent is CHIPPENDALES. (I think they actually hint at this in the commercials, frighteningly enough.)

So wrong. SO WRONG.

Jenny

someone said on FB.

Those jean diapers are soo gross, it is like you should give the kid a wife beater t-shirt and a bottle full of mountain dew.

I can't believe huggies would think they are to die for! Enjoy them.

Katie Kat

Oh dear lord in heaven! That second picture is just priceless! Only The Mighty Ez could rock those diapers. Hee hee!

BTW, he's just about tall enough to bash his head into the countertop (see second picture). I'm sure you know that, but - just sayin'. Watch out! :)

Bill McNutt

You know, I hate to admit it, but they look pretty good.

Amber

More frightening than these [although Ez rocks em like a champ!] are the "jeans print" leggings I saw yesterday. For grown-ass women. Complete with rhinestone studded "belt" and designer "label" printed on the back. Blech. I shudder to think of the human who would subject their ass to that.

NaysWay

I'm kinda bummed mine are too old to wear diapers now! I'd totally buy these.
