A very tired New Year’s Eve

Look, Interent: I am smiling. And then one hour later at 10:30 PM I was asleep. (Picture kindly taken by Beth who says she made it all the way to midnight back at her house. Parents, we ROCK.)

    Your new masthead rocks!

  • La Pixiatrix

    I like it. That lady silhouette is a real bad ass intimidator.

  • La Pixiatrix

    Funny on my blackberry it seemed to say “Unlearning The Inner Monologue”

    That should be my masthead.

  • Cheryl

    Love the new masthead… i only wish I could be as clever as you Dooce. :-)

  • Chiara

    I am so moved; by the letter to Leta, Dooce readers comments, the masthead, the photo, etc. What are all of us Dooce readers getting Leta as a birthday present?!

    Let’s buy her a pony.

  • La Pixiatrix

    Let’s buy her a web server and some RAM.

    Hey, Dooce–you could really harness the power of the internet and set up an Amazon wishlist for the kid…

    That was the most beautiful entry about Leta yet! She is a lucky child to have you. Love the pic of her smiling.

    Love the redesign of the colors and masthead, great shots of he frog and her gnawing ways, and that cursed Dooce writing CONSISTENTLY leaves me laughing with tears in my eyes. Keep up the great work. Have got to get Leta some Dooce donations for her birthday…

    That’s just about the purtiest green I ever did see.

  • Julie

    As a Mommy myself, your 11-month letter to Leta just made me cry because it expressed everything my heart feels for my own little girl. You’re such a gifted writer.

    It’s not green. It’s seafoam.

  • Zach

    Seafoam was a bit hard on the eyes.

  • Cheryl

    Heather might I say that you have the most adorable smile!!! You should do it more often… I was up until 12:10 and passed out. The kids banged pots and pans around my head and I still didn’t wake up. Oh well. I was happy in dreamland. Happy New Year!

    I love this photo. Note the baby bottle in the background. Usually a NYE pic has a martini glass or a pint of beer in it. This is a classic.

  • Olga

    I think (on the picture) your ring kinda matches your eyes. Wow! :)

    youze guys is awesome!

    Excellent picture. Looks like a good way to ring in the new year to me. No signs of a Boobah either which makes the image doubly sweet.

    Happy New Year to all of you in the Armstrong Household! Nice smiles. Isn’t New Year’s Day nice when you’re not hungover? It took me many years to figure it out – the irony of getting stinkin’ drunk & then starting the new year RIGHT! (please! keep your voice down! my head is splitting & the floor is spinning! BLEAH! This year’s gonna blow, just like me!) I say, save the hangover for the 6th of May, when the tequila is plentiful & encouraged the night before….. cheers!

  • honestpaula

    Heather, you have beautiful teeth. I’m looking forward to seeing them more often. Jon is looking handsome as well.

    Woah. That picture really shows Leta’s genes in action. She really is the perfect hybrid of you two.

    Happy New Year!

    We had a very similar New Year’s. All my friends displayed their pity on us for not being able to leave the house, but we had our own kind of fun. Happy New Year Armstrong Family!

    That’s a great, happy pic… I see you are wearing nice clothes, not pjs (like we were). That counts for something.
