    I thought I'd add in some humor to the forums with a somewhat BlackBerry related poll for all the parents out there. After wrestling my 1 yr old son around trying to change his diaper I started thinking, we always carry our phones with us so I wonder how many other parents reach for it to make their kid hold still when it's time for a change?

    (I personally keep a 4 yr old Nextel phone around for it. I suppose I should've included "I have a retired phone for that" in the poll)

    I stopped changing diapers a few years ago, but when I did, I never used anything electronic to distract the kids. Drool and electronics are not a good combination, and boys pee upwards, so anything north of the belly button is at risk. There are lots of safer toys for that.

    Sigh, can't even have a humorous thread without someone trolling it up... Ponderous...

    I was pretty quick with the diaper changes, so that was never an issue, but I did have a keyboard with the cord cut off to distract him from mine. Now they are old enough to have their own BBs...

    Unfortunately these things happen.
    Let's just move on and not feed them. Those of us that get it need not prove ourselves. CB has been doing some pretty good cracking down here lately...

    Reminder: If you see something in the forums, that really shouldn't be there.. quoting it doesn't really help. In fact.. it makes it harder to clean up.. report, ignore and move on.

    I will remember that in the future.
