I am kind of unbearably excited to unveil the hitherto-unnamed project to which I’ve been referring for the last few weeks. So here we go:

Eden Marriott Kennedy and I are proud to announce our new website, LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES!

LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES! is meant to be a helpful and soothing companion during your child-bearing and –raising years. In this comprehensive and frighteningly detailed site, we answer such questions as, should I avoid cats? (Answer: more than you know.) Or how did this baby get in me? (Science has yet to find an answer to this mystery.) Or why does my baby’s head smell so good? (When no one’s looking, babies rub a special balm into their bald little heads: a patented blend of civet musk, tapioca powder, and holy water. )

So. If you want to be comforted by the knowledge that your newborn baby is not the only one who looks like Ernest Borgnine, or if you're wondering why a t-shirt is the most tasteful way to tell the world you're expecting, look no further!

Please note: LET’S PANIC ABOUT BABIES! is not just for people who are about to give birth, are currently giving birth, or have recently given birth. I have been told that the site is an important source of information even if you never intend to have a baby or, indeed, if you hate the very sight of them. So please, go there. Read. Continue to read, as we will be updating weekly. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we cracked ourselves up writing it.

[final update: after some server troubles, all is now well. The End.]
