Attention, dads-to-be: Your lives are about to change ... FOREVER!
Dan Fitzgerald: Sure, nothing too groundbreaking in that statement, but I'm not talking about
sleep schedules, social schedules or sex schedules. I'm talking about diaper bags, a.k.a. "man purses." I'm sure that, like me, you looked at that giant designer flowered bag your wife got at her shower and said, "No flippin' way am I carrying that around." You probably even asked for your own, more "manly" diaper bag. Newsflash: They don't exist. Sure, it might be a different color or have footballs on it, but it's still a purse. It's science.
So save time, arguments and money and just listen to me now: EMBRACE THE MURSE! It's gonna take a little bit, but after the first few months, you'll easily see how functional it actually is, and it will become your best friend (a best friend that doesn't drink beer or play fantasy sports). Seriously, everything you need for your child is right there in one convenient place! Now, it's still a mark on your manhood, but so is that ridiculous matching Elmo hat you have with your son.
