So you already peed on the stick and waved the plastic piece soaked in urine under his nose. How do you top that kind of production when it comes time to tell him he’s going to have a bouncing baby boy, or daddy’s little girl for that matter?
How about a carton of It’s a Boy Ice Cream? Cause you know the way to a man’s heart is by handing him a fake carton of ice cream. That’s right – a cardboard tub of nothing for him. Except a pair of granny panties (these are for pregnant women after all) that say “it’s a girl” or “it’s a boy.”
Whatever happened to circling the little pee-pee on the sonogram?
According to an e-mail sent our way this week, that’s just what moms will soon be able to do via online shopping at Moody Mamas and Nordstrom. “Inside each of these ice cream cartons is a pair of adorable panties,” the release reads. “Trust me, it will take him a minute to figure it out!” To figure out what? That he’s not getting any ice cream?
The undies don’t seem to be available just yet – right now you can only buy Strawberry Stork-Cake and Feelin’ Illa Vanilla with panties sporting “sexy mama” because, after all, nothing says sexy like an ass that’s spreading to accomodate his new little muffin. The gender-specific undies come unpackaged at the moment. I know, I’m disappointed too.
Am I the only Mom out there who thinks this is not only ridiculous but a waste of a good pint container? When I was pregnant, I wanted my Phish Food – hold the pickles, but give it to me NOW! Besides, we weren’t really the cutesy wootsy types – there was much jumping and “woohooing” when I found out I was pregnant, but no code words, no guessing games, no little pee stick wrapped in small box wrapped in slightly bigger box wrapped in . . . you get the picture. As a woman, I just can’t see myself – or anyone I know – buying these.
Then again, maybe if the underwear were edible. . .
