The Boy Scout Motto

Be Prepared

Having children seems to be a very complicated thing.

Back in the days of the cave-people, I suspect that Oog and Aag had to go out into the forest to make sure they had enough palm fronds and rocks to use as diapers and toys for their hairy bundle of nerves with a prominent brow.

And so here we, in modern times, must do the same thing, albeit more so.

Cloth diapers or disposable? Change table? Light saber or blaster?

So many decisions.

So, being the forward-thinking guy that I am, I started a list of stuff that we will need so that I don’t forget anything.

Things like…

  • Crib
  • Stroller
  • Car seat
  • A steady stream of WhyNattes
  • Diapers
  • Receiving Blankets*
  • Sleepers
  • Baby poncho, sunglasses and cowboy hat


I’m not going to write the whole thing here, as it would take too long and most likely overload the internets.

So, good people (especially parents), I need some advice.

What would you put on the list?

Go bananas…
