Labeled: Things They Should Put On Condom Boxes

Jan 21, 2008

#Life#Parenting Siblings

Warning: You may only get half your leg shaved if this, or any other birth control, fails. “Mommy, I pooooppeeddd and I need you to wipe me. NNNooOWWWW”

Condoms are only 97% effective. Consider double-ing up. (Or Quadrupling)


  1. You actually shave your legs? 

    I’m considering relabeling my blog as the perfect “virtual birth control”

  3. Nothing happens in this house without the prophylactics.  NOTHING.

    We are very near to hubs little snip snip…It’s bad when you have to plan it between sports seasons (he’s an referee).

  4. I was considering trying to find a lock for our nightstand drawers so that our toddler would stop pulling out condoms and bringing them to us. Or so I could stop worrying about him digging out the other um, ‘things’ Mommy keeps in her nightstand. “No you can not have these batteries, they are for my toys.”

    If we have to lock those drawers, well, you think getting a condom is awkward enough?

    The humility of this is our form of birth control for the time being.

  8. Warning: you may be forced to bathe with a peeing-pooping child for the next 3 years if this product fails.
    Do you think urine on skin really does work the wonders those weirdos claim?

  9. Awesome photo.  Yeah.  You’d think with two in the house we couldn’t get knocked up again.  Hah.

  10. There’s hope. Eventually they get older and go to school and then you can shave your legs between the hours 9 and 3. You just have to make it through five years of leg fur. wink

  11. This was hilarious!! And OH SO TRUE!! I am not a lurker, just to let you know. I am Dutch Blitz’s sister and I thought I would check out some of her friends blogs. I am glad I did.  Everyone in the office thought I lost it while I was giggling to your post.  LOL!!

  12. Ha! Too cute.  And a little creepy.  No? 
    That’s why I love my M*rena!  99.9% effective, don’t have to think about it, and it’s the ONLY thing my insurance has ever made worthwhile (save the birth of Zach).  Only cost me $50!  Wha?  Yes!  $50!
    Now I can spend the money saved on things like razors and nice smelling lotion, if I ever get to use them again!

  15. At least she is pooping on the potty. I swear that God is punishing me for all the premarital sex when he gave me Gavin. It’ll be a few years before he will be yelling for a butt wiping. Although I have a great excuse with his whole “I’m not neurotypical and no one can make me be”.
