Warped Priorities?

I know it's odd, but in the whole raising-a-baby-thing, I have to say, I'm really appreciative of DISH Network's PVR. Basically, it's a no-name TiVO, and it's really wonderful. We are able to record all kinds of shows and movies and when little Rachel keeps us up until 3 am, we can watch something we've recorded. Or when she needs a diaper change, or begins to suddenly wail, we can hit "Pause" on something we're watching. If it's recorded, it waits patiently for us. If it's something live, then it just begins recording for us and we just pick up where we left off. We attend to the baby with the attention she needs and we don't miss out. I know that seems silly, but it's just another stress avoided.

More on why Luv's suck... the tabs are smaller and they have a section of tape. They are mostly the velcro stuff, but they also have tape which can stick to the baby. And they have Barney on them. And as I say, nothing with Barney can be good. We've set aside a lot to toss, but if we find a parent for whom they work, we'll give them away with a warning.
