OCTOBER 29, 2010: BOO

Happy almost-All Hallow’s Eve! The day when spirits fly all around and try to invade your body and consume your sweet life essence! Don’t let them, dear readers!

One of the best ways to prevent possession is to wear a costume that is decidedly unsexy. Sexiness invites demons to muck around with your spiritual innards, as we all know. And unhappy ghosts hate virtuous historical figures! With that in mind, do we have some Halloween costume suggestions for you.

And in case you think this is a rerun of last year’s Halloween story, all we can say is that we’re pretty sure déjà vu is a symptom of spirits ingesting your soul. Better invest in some holy water!

Some parents tend to dismiss the advice of their older children, but they do so at their peril. After all, who knows better the ins and outs of being childreared by us than the children we first practiced on when we didn’t have a goddamn clue what we were doing?

This week, we invite former infant Max Hurley, age 11, to give us his insights on babies, parenting, and how to keep the sparkle alive in your marriage. Max’s parents, Larissa and Steven Hurley, are awfully proud of the way their handsome sixth-grade son takes charge of his baby sister, Willa, freeing his parents up for a night at the movies and a short dinner that gets them home by 9 o’clock. As long as they pay him $5. An hour.

You can read Max’s five steps for saving your marriage here. Thanks, Max!

Confused, despairing pregnant women! We are here for you! No, not there. Here. Right…right here. THERE you go.

Because we realize that you are hormone-crazed and placenta-addled, we are always here to answer any and all questions you may have about your changing body or the body inside your body. We’d rather not field the super-gross questions, however. Please send those to Dr. Sears. He’s always game for anything. Anyhoo, these were the ones we were willing to answer this week.

Hey! As long as you’re here and at least semi-conscious, allow us to remind you to pre-order our forthcoming book, “Let’s Panic About Babies!” The book will be released on March 1st, but who knows how out of it you may be, by then? Order now! Thank you!
