Dang, you people are funny, and your children are smart. I'd like to thank Dennis, Amy, Nicole, Hedra, Anne, Gail, Caley, Charisse, Lisa, Julie, oddharmonic, and Marla for writing up their Parent Hackfires. (Be sure to read Cathy's, too, which snuck in a bit later. Too funny!) We've all been there, and I admire your honesty and chutzpah for sharing. Thanks, too, Laid-Off Dad, for inspiring this contest in the first place.
After plenty of back and forth (believe me, it was hard to choose), I chose the winner based on pure olfactory description. The winner is…Anne Nahm! Your description of the Diaper Genie debacle was so funny that it may have caused at least one Parent Hacks reader to wet herself. Anne, email me (email@example.com) with your mailing address and I'll get your prize out to you right away. Congratulations!
