The Scout

Now I've seen many diaper bags out there, but this one is by far the coolest! The Scout by Petunia Pickle Bottom is really made for a man, but I say strong enough for a woman as well! It's got pockets-a-plenty and a compact version for mini-moms like me! It's got bells and whistles galore, and it better, cause it's got a hefty price tag to boot!

You Go Girl!

Yes folks, times are tough, but as always, women are tougher! The New York Times recently published an article stating that eventually more women than men would be employed in the US. The reason is that, in more than 8 out of 10 layoffs, it's men who are getting the boot. That's because the steepest downturns have been in male-heavy sectors like construction.

Further, this phenomenon speculates that the pattern may further alter gender roles, forcing men to spend more time caregiving -- more stay-at-home dads? Hmmmm...
