Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh! We've all been there, wedged uncomfortably in between two people on a flight, cramped legroom, anxious to reach our destination and that adorably squishy baby you waved to earlier has now turned into a shrieking creature like something out of Mothra vs. Godzilla. If I could go back in time to those flights where I let those little angels get to me, I'd tell myself  "Get over it! That kid's parents have it way worse. At least you aren't also dodging spit up, avoiding blowback poop or inventing new ways of changing diapers in the world's tiniest bathroom.

And now the two toy rivals are lobbing charges at each other.Child World Inc., which is struggling to lure back customers after a brush or two with bankruptcy, is complaining that Toys 'R' Us Inc. is taking advantage of a promotion at Child World to stock up on diapers, baby food and formula at bargain-basement prices.For every $100 of diapers and other items purchased at Child World in September, customers receive certificates worth 25 percent off a similar purchase in October.

If you are past your early years of parenthood, or don't plan on undergoing any parenthood at all, don't skip this column and move on to Dear Abby. Like it or not, diapering decisions may soon involve you, too.Diapers made their way out of the nursery and onto the ballot in Nebraska two years ago. Citizens there voted to ban the sale of all non-biodegradable diapers by 1993.At issue is the so-called disposable diaper -- a concoction of plastic and paper padding that can absorb up to 80 times its weight in, well, let's just call it moisture.

Vi Ripken was asked yesterday whether she had any helpful hints for her son before he took the stage. "I don't know," she said. "I haven't changed his diapers in a long time. He's made it this far on his own, and I'm sure he'll do fine this time on his own."

NASA? Kidnapping? Diapers? It's almost too easy. Some stories - the more twisted and sensational the better - are irresistible to the creators of newspaper headlines and late-night TV monologues. And this week's astronaut love triangle, however tragic, has been a predictable bonanza. But humor, as always, is in the eye of the writer: Some headlines (from bestfrontdesign.com): Daily News (New York): "Dark side of the loon" Beaver County (Pa.) Times: "Astronut?"

Faithful readers of this column know that years ago, when my children were successfully out of diapers, we would send them for a week in the summer to their grandparents in Pittsburgh. It's not like my husband and I went to a Sandals resort during that week. He was usually traveling to cover the NFL, and I would use the week to go to work on my schedule instead of theirs. Joe and Jessie never asked to do anything while at Grandma and Grandpa's. No petting zoos. No carnivals. They would just lie in bed and watch cartoons on their own personal televisions, play and eat. Grandma would make piles of mashed potatoes and gravy for Joe, and there were ice cream sundaes for breakfast for Jessie.

Shelissa Kearney is a woman of many trades. In addition to being a savvy businesswoman, writer and former model, the Howard County native is mother to a 2-year-old. The founder of Shelissa Organics, a line of natural lip balms, and author of “Naturally Naked” has launched her own line of baby gear called Shelly Belly Baby. Frustrated by diaper bags that looked too dowdy or that lacked utility, Kearney was inspired to put her background in fashion to use in creating tote bags that would appeal to the modern stylish mom. “I found that on most bags, the pockets were either too little or in the wrong places,” Kearney says.

A 25-year-old Gambrills man pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of child pornography after Anne Arundel County police located hundreds of images of prepubescent children on computers and other digital storage devices in his home, according to the office of Maryland U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. Many of the images Robert Jay Hudson II had collected contained "sadistic and violent conduct" against children, including the rape of toddlers, prosecutors said. According to the plea agreement, police were first notified that Hudson possessed child pornography in April 2011, after he let someone use his computer and that person saw the images.

But the real surprise might be that everybody was very polite about it. Chris Routly of Allentown, Pa., stays home to care for 3-year-old Tucker and 14-month-old Coltrane...

Once upon a time, a little boy named Pierre got a stuffed animal monkey. "Pierre named him Boo-Boo Monkey," writes his mother, Celine. "It is his best friend, he takes him everywhere, he wanted me to put some diapers on monkey (because according to Pierre Monkey is still a baby and needs diapers .... so cute) and some days I had to make some clothes too (LOL I can't believe I did it with paper towel), and of course Monkey would join us for dinner and always sleeps with Pierre. " Or at least Boo-Boo Monkey did sleep with 4-year-old Pierre until the stuffed animal went missing somewhere in Federal Hill.
