Is there such a thing as a “Manly” Diaper Bag?

Let’s face it ladies, when you’re pregnant it’s all about you.  How you’re feeling, what you’re craving, blah, blah, blah.  What about your man?  You have to admit he is left by the wayside.

When I found out I was pregnant it was January, and since father’s day wasn’t until June, I thought it would be nice to surprise my hubby with a Father’s day gift on Valentine’s day.   My husband is very comfortable with his masculinity, so much so, that before Little Pumpkin Doodle was born he would hold my purse when I was too tired, or if it was too heavy for me to hold.  In fact, most times before we would go out, he would do a purse weigh-in (if I couldn’t hold the purse in my forearm, he asked me to take something out of the purse), since he knew in a couple of hours I would be complaining the purse was too heavy.

I asked myself, what would be a cool gift for a soon-to-be-dad? And yes, I decided it would be a diaper bag.  I know, not very manly, until I found the Diaper Dude website and their Eco-friendly bag (Green Dude made of recycled fabric).

On Valentine’s day I gave him his present, he opened it up and said, “oh thanks.”  I have to confess I was very disappointed, since I thought he would love it.  Soon after Little Pumpkin Doodle was born my hubby and LPD went on their first solo outing. I noticed he was packing the Green Dude, but didn’t say anything (honestly, I thought he was going to carry her diapers in a Trader Joe’s paper bag). When he returned home, he told me how much he liked the bag.  It had a lot of room, was Eco-friendly and it looked cool.  He also confessed that he was sorry he didn’t appreciate it when I first gave it to him, because it brought the overwhelming realization that he was going to be a father (so it was more shock than disappointment).

Hi There-I just stated a new Facebook page & Facebook needs me to have 25 fans before I can get a user name for my page.  If you like this article, I’d really appreciate you being one of the first 25 people to like my page.  It would really help me and it only takes a few seconds.  Here’s the link http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mommys-Organics/164854546950417.
