White Men Cantaloupe Jump

From TheBump.com:
Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

Holy crap! I have two cantaloupes inside me!
Actually it's misleading because it's all about the length of the fruit (not the motion of the ocean?)

I think Mark can have the honor of changing the special meconium-filled diaper.


  1. Don't miss today's exciting episode of Eating for 3 in which more content is cut-and-pasted from TheBump.com, then personalized by Kathy pointing out the lack of value of that information.

  2. Yeah, I didn't even see the meconium-filled diaper. That's really not a job for someone who just gave birth. BTW, in Mark's case, he'll have the honor of changing the special meconium filled diapers (plural). Lucky Mark!

    Rev. Smith isn't really a man of the cloth, is he? I've been reading his comments and although I suspect he'd give entertaining sermons, I can't picture him actually running a church.

  3. I interpreted Kathy using "meconium-filled diaper" (singular, not plural) to mean that she will be making both twins share one diaper. Good way to save money, I guess...


  4. @Brendan - Yeah, yeah. Look, I like knowing what fruits they're the size of for the week.

    @Lizzy - His church is the church of Lego:

    And the answer to your question on whether or not he's actually a reverend can be found on #10 of his FAQ:

    Apparently he's also pregnant:

    Any chance of making your own pregnancy blog, Brendan?

    @Lila - While I may disappoint people by going for disposable diapers over cloth, at least I'm using less by having them share.

  5. I got to see the meconium come out. A tar-like hershey kiss thing. Impossible to get off. That's what they make baby oil for.

  6. Oh man, you totally should have titled this one with the quote my dad used to say every time we had a melon in the house:

    "I cantaloupe, what would my honeydew?"
