    Drama – must be in the NICU handbook. They did the same thing to my daughter when she was born at 27 weeks. I suppose KY must be more sterile than tape, and washes off easier.

  • Jennifer

    Dooce — Did you SEE Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last night? The Woffords! I cried like a baby for two whole hours.

  • jessica

    ky jelly sticks like glue but washes off w/ water. we do that in our nursery all the time too.

  • Paula

    I have 6 nieces, not one of them had hair until they were at least 2 years old. I remember my sisters buying little tiny bows that had velcro fasteners. They never worked. Now I’ll have to tell them that they should have used KY all along.

    Leta and Chuck. Too cute!

    Jennifer, me too.

    Please don’t tell my poker buddies.)

  • Taylor

    You ARE beautiful enough to be a model and believe me, no autistic child I know can say “Go dog, go!”…best wishes and Merry Christmas..

  • http://www.ximena.blog-city.com Super Turtle Girl

    Yay Leta! Yay Chuck! Leta is a cool kid and always will be.

  • Dave

    You need some kind of ‘first post’ gets changed to ‘i suck’ script. I’ll never understand first posters but I’ll always be annoyed by their pointless pride.

  • http://tonedeaf.typepad.com/tonedeaf tone

    Aww, baby bed-head is the best!

  • Kimi

    I know! Chuck is a Buddhist and he is in the zone in this picture.

    Mean people suck, there is just no other way to say it.

    I ate leftover turkey for lunch and then I read yesterday’s discussion and now I feel guilty for the turkey.

    But I’m glad I didn’t go online yesterday. Shit.

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com Kristine

    Oh thank god everything is back to normal!
    We had the typical 5th posting of ‘first’
    our Chuck & Leta pictures.
    Friends posting all happy again.
    Everything is right in the world.

    I hate after Christmas clean up.

  • http://symbioticfishes.blogspot.com Fish

    Hiya Amanda B!

    Yay, pointless pride!

    Huh? My autistic child can say Go, Dog, Go. Huh?!!!

  • http://ganman.typepad.com Scott

    Awesome picture. Chuck is so well behaved.

    Boobah’s freak me out. I saw some during my holiday rounds and thought they looked like the unholy demon offspring of a Teletubby and an armadillo. Yikes.

  • http://symbioticfishes.blogspot.com Fish

    What’s that about an autistic dog? I didn’t even know they made those.

    *ON BOOHBAH ANTHROPOLOGY:* Tinky Winky could take all them mother-fuckers, like Homo Sapiens kicked the crap outta the neanderthals. I mean, it’s obvious that the “Boohbah” is just a lesser-evolved form of Teletubby, right?

  • http://jelene.modblog.com jelene

    I think it’s funny, that when you take a photo, whatever is in that photo, EVERYONE WANTS ONE.

    “Where did you get that bedspread it’s delicious! Where did that ugly pig figurine come from, I want one! What is Leta wearing, I gotta get one for Sally Sue Bob!”

    Companies that sell stuff that you like, should let you try stuff out and advertise on here. People will be standing in line around the corner to buy WHATEVER HEATHER HAS BOUGHT.

  • http://whenoctoberfalls.ws Autumn

    Yeah, she lives an incredible life and has many fans who are way addicting and want a life just like her.

    I’d be one, but I’m about 8 years younger so I can’t really comprehend the whole family thing.

  • http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000297PMU/002-8352540-1497636?v=glance JulieT

    Hence my earlier recommendation “as seen on Dooce…” She could get a small fortune for that pig statue.

    If you click my name from this entry you’ll be taken, directly, to the Dancing Boohbah page at Amazon. This thing really does look like an uncircumcised penis.

    I wonder how long it will be before the Bible Belt folks will decide they’re satanic.

  • http://karinka1.blogspot.com karinka

    I think the boobahs look like Darth Vadar after his mask is taken off at the end of “Return of the Jedi”.

  • http://someadventure.blogspot.com Girl.A

    Hello Amanda B and Fishy from the heartland where I am taking pictures of as many ceramic figurines as cross my path in the houses of the folks as we “go visiting”…

    I am terrified of figurines and I pray it is true that photographing them steals their souls. God I hope so.

  • George Lover

    Hey, Dooce, we want to see the amazing jewelry you received! Selecting jewelry for someone else, even for a special someone else that you know really well, is tough. Good job, Jon.

  • http://ganman.typepad.com Scott

    JulieT – I’ll go roam the streets with a Boobah and see how long it takes to be denounced as a fornicator, blasphemer and a vessel of sin.

    karinka – now that you mention it, they sort of do look like Darth. I just hope one never breathes heavily and tells me it is my father.

  • Julie

    Dave, I’m woth you on the “FIRST!” thing.

    DOOCE: we need a message forum. Check out http://www.delphiforums.com

  • http://www.thejulietfiles.com JulieT

    Me too. I will never be first. By the time I wake up and get the coffee going, there are already 40 comments.

  • Moo

    I’d just like to say that my niece, who is 10 months, also loves Boohbah. It’s disturbing. She got the purple one and it scares her grandma. Have you seen the tv show? I think it may be a step below teletubbies.

  • paula

    Personally, I think boohbahs look like Grimace from the old McDonalds adds, but that could just be me.

    P.S. Im so glad my nieces and nephews are too old for them.

  • Gia on Guam

    There is nothing wrong with an uncircumcised penis.

  • http://dramaqueenchronicles.blogspot.com Drama Queen

    Gary at Science Fiction twin (http://www.sciencefictiontwin.com/blog/blog.asp) had the best entry a few months ago where he described Boobah from his point of view. It was fabulous and hysterical, but of course now I have no clue where to even start looking for that post.

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    Is it me or is the popular blog-specific punctuation of the moment writing stuff Just. Like. This.

  • http://dirtyfloorsandfilthyjokes.blogspot.com/ closet metrosexual

    Its. Just. You.

  • http://dramaqueenchronicles.blogspot.com Drama Queen

    Gary at Science Fiction Twin rocks. I asked politely (after searching through his archives myself with no luck) and he sent me a link to the very best Boobah post ever:


  • http://spiritofone.typepad.com robyn

    i wish our dog was that patient! we tried to “dress him up” for halloween, and he wasn’t having any of it! he can’t handle not being in control of the attention he gets … kudos to chuck!!!

    and i love your photos, by the way.

    Awww, my first Dooce Comments Section Impostor:
    >>Mary In Sacramento said at 11:43AM, 12.27.2004:
    sorry i made such a nasty comment yesterday. i was on the rag.<<

    You’re still a cunt, Debbie. I wasn’t even AWAKE at 11:43am this morning.

    Anyhow, that being said, Heather, Leta is beautiful! James (my 4 1/2 month old) loves to reach out and yank on my husky/ wolf mix’s fur, and the weird thing is Caine will purposefully lay down near the baby like he enjoys having James yank on him. It’s “pack mentality” I guess.

    Leta would look adorable even if you dressed her in Chartreuse with fuschia and orange polka dots.

  • sam

    Okay, even though I’ve only read ONE Boobah post (2 minutes ago), I think I can safely agree with Drama Queen that it is the best Boobah post ever!

    Oh, and I had another t-shirt idea: “They say that tough guys wear pink, but so do baby girls, moron.”


  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com Kristine

    Mary in Sacramento-
    Oh man, you got an dooce comment section impostor!? I wanted one of those for Christmas!!

    Be careful with it, you might shoot your eye out ;)

    Anyway, Hi Mary in Sacramento, I’m Kristine in Sacramento (or a suburb of it)

    This post was writen by Kristine. No impostors were hurt in the making of this post.

    I was gonna ask for a Dooce Comments Section Imposter for Christmas, but I heard they’re a bitch to house-train.

  • sam

    LadyBug – No, not a bitch to house train. Just a bitch.

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com Kristine

    sam and lady bug…stop. you’re killing me, I am laughing so hard.

    question to peoples: how in the hell do you find out so much information on someone? I mean, you guys had email addresses, personal webpages, ads people have out….

    You all should be ePI’s. I can’t even remember my weblog address if I didn’t have that ‘remember me’ button clicked! hee hee.

  • http://ladymadaysia.blogdrive.com Amber

    Woah, I am totally uber-confused.

    I left one comment on this website earlier, and it turns out someone else was using my name and info while typing comments. Weird. I’m not complaining. But weird. Has that happened to anyone else?

  • http://ladymadaysia.blogdrive.com Amber

    Yes, like what I am doing now. Bwahaha.

  • http://www.brandonbird.com/walken_letters.html coskel

    ok, must share this – I almost never share links, and honestly can’t remember how I got to this tonight, but…”Christmas Letters to Christopher Walken?” Click on the url, or tis below, I hope.

    she is so adorable :)

  • http://konzadiary.diaryland.com juli

    Ok, I after your description of the toy I finally broke down and did a search to see, *really see*, a children’s show where the characters can be described as p.u.p.’s. Oh. My. Gawd. Maybe if we’d had penis-like characters when I was small, I would not be this way. *Nah*.

  • http://konzadiary.diaryland.com juli

    Sorry about all the bold in the previous comment. I was just so discombobulated by the penis thing. Always did make me nervous.

  • mindi

    Boo bah.. I got one for our nephew…mostly as a joke for his mother. Turns out..he LOVES the thing and yes it is pretty spooky!

    The kids were all looking at it as I was walking through Target and saying “BOOBAH!” I thought they looked like colorful Uncle Festers.

    Very funny stuff. Please post a pic of Leta with it!

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    Two things:

    1) I think George woould want me to have the Nintendo thing about which he wrote in his e-mail. Send it to my attention at once.

    2) I have been telling everyone I know to SAY IT TO MY FACE, BITCH! since the other day. I blame you.
