amandahearn_8Being a parent can mean missing out on New Year’s Eve festivities…. but have no fear Kim & Amanda are here! If you don’t have a babysitter, or if your baby is too young to leave just yet, then we made plans for you that can be done safely from the comfort of your own home!

Live chat/party/drink/laugh/play with Kim of Dirty Diaper Laundry and ME! We’ve had a blast hosting live G+ video chats, first with our #vagangelist event and then with #menofthebabyindustry. We just had to do another!

How does it work?

As a viewer all you need to do is say “Yes” to the “Are You Watching” question on the event page. G+ is excellent, to the point of annoying, about reminding you as the days approach so you almost can’t forget to attend if you say yes!

As the chat starts you can see the video from the event page. To participate with other viewers you can post to the event’s page. We will be monitoring the activity there, so if you have a comment or question for us ask it there too!

We have our festive hats made, our wine glasses washed, and are just counting down the days until our next event! We are also looking for a few more sponsors that might be interested in offering prizes. If that’s you, please feel to email either Kim or myself for more information!

It should be a good time, and we look forward to seeing you there!

While at ABC we were given a copy of this new book and it is adorable and so fun to read. the pictures are colorful and bold, and the books reads sing-song style. My daughters love it and request that I read… sing… it often. You’ll love it!


If you are out of the diapering phase, the book can be purchased individually through retailers for $7.99.

If you’re all about the cloth (about the cloth, no sposies…. omg so sorry for that ;) ) you can pick up the book complimentary with the purchase of an Ocean Collection package.

The project is a super awesome, amazing, never before seen CALENDAR!!!! and it will soon be on sale. Yes, you will be able to own a piece of history, and the lovely participants inside aren’t a bad reason either ;)  100% of the profits will be donated to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope so so every purchases supports a terrific cause that needs your help to continue its mission.


Sign up to watch our live stream on G+and YouTube on Tuesday November 25th at 9:30 PM EST where we will reveal each man involved and their fabulous photo one by one!
