For my babyshower, I got a boppy pillow (very useful). It included a year's free subscription to Parents magazine and I just received my very first copy.
I eagerly read it and came to the sad conclusion that they assume parents to be just as stupid a target audience as women. To wit: They print a note that starts out with the following:
If you're too time-crunched to squeeze in a shampoo, consider it a beauty bonus.So far, so good. But then there's instructions on how to style the non-shampooed hair, and it's a SEVEN-step process that includes the use of THREE different products. I could probably shampoo twice in that time. And whatever happened to the old standby of wearing a hat?
Other parent mags aren't better, but I've worked up too much frustration to adequately express, so let's just say that I'm taking the whole stack of magazines to the doctor's office when I go for my six-week checkup, to donate to the waiting room. Good riddance!
