    Julie, no, not a Kangaroo…’s a multi vintaged shemale!

  • Henryk

    or…Snugglepot and Cuddlipie

  • Henryk

    ……with apologies to Norman Lindsey (you prpbably have to be an Aussie to understand!)

  • Laurel 825

    Congrats on the interview. And, hey, you sound more SoCal than Tennessee. ;)

  • Hannah

    Henryk – Snugglepot and Cuddlepie!! That’s exactly what I was thinking!!

    And Heather, even as an Aussie, I hardly noticed your accent at all. Kinda surprised me actually.

  • Harry

    Norman Lindsay…well known (to Australians) Australian artist who also wrote four Magic Pudding….Cutiepie and Snuggle pot were amoungst his writings.

    It’s late.

    I find myself wondering “Where is GOD?…

    …and why the hell doesn’t he smite Carlos Beltran’s ass?”


  • squish

    PLEEASE GOD! Smite the shit out of Carlos Beltran! (And while you’re at it, aim some extra bolts at Scott Boras, the spawn of Satan.)

  • squish


  • God’s Secretary

    I’m sorry. GOD is very busy right now. Please rest assured that HE will smite those who provoke HIS wrath or generally behave like assholes. This may or may not include those on your personal list. Thankyou.

  • Heather

    I’ve never posted here before, but I just have to say that this is the COOLEST picture! :)

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Hey…the maid from The Jefferson is all crying on the floor in ER. What a small world.

  • squish

    Boras and Beltran have generally behaved like major assholes. I think a smiting is in order, ma’am, or sir or whatever the hell you are.

  • squish

    heck. I meant heck.

  • squish

    The maid from the Jefferson’s? Florence? I love her…

  • LisaLisa

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! That picture makes me want to reproduce…like REAL BAD. I love seeing daddy/baby pics like that. It makes me feel lucky to be married to my husband, who I KNOW will bust out the Kangaroo moves (as shown above). They are too sweet. Good job Heather!

  • coskel

    um, excuse me? Mr/Ms or otherwise gender-neutral GSecretary? Where do I submit my list of smitees, and is there a limit to the non-committal ex-boyfriends?

    Be happy with your husbands and wives folks, you could be sitting alone with a cat every night in your 40s, never having known a real committment. : ) no, im not bitter – I just taste that way!

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    If you don’t have anything nice to say about Carlos Beltran’s ass or his agent (I mean Carlos’ agent, not his ass’ agent), don’t say anything at all.

  • God’s Intern

    God’s Secretary is currently in a meeting. You may submit all “To Be Smited” lists directly to me in the meantime. HIS Holy Self takes care of the smitings (likely a 2-4 week wait), but I can get started on the “A Pox Upon You” requests, as they were covered in last week’s training.

    Best Regards,
    God’s Intern

  • Relentless Christian Amber

    Now is it just me, or do you think that Leta is making a statement about voting?

    She’s really THAT smart.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Dear God,
    Please smite anyone who spends 40 millions to party and doesn’t invite me.

    Thanks, The MsStriz

  • coskel

    If Boras and Beltran are getting smite – submitted, then we definitely need to include all of the NHL – I’m sorry, but I just don’t care that CuJo lost 4 million $$ this season cause he is sitting on his ass, y’know? HELLO – I live in Michigan – hockey is all we HAVE in the winter!

  • squish

    Are you sure that’s snow outside your window?

  • mg2

    carlos beltran is a sell out bitch, although he has been blessed with the ass of a saint. Or maybe his agent, that money grubbing a-hole, is more deserving of the smite? I’ll let god decide. And you, the Merikan people.

  • Amanda B.

    Boras and Beltran sound like Decepticons to me.

  • nothanks

    Just came back from the rally in Westwood. There were so many of us and seeing so many families with their kids and dogs, it would have been cool to enjoy it with all of you guys out there.

  • Gia on Guam

    Transformers, more than meets the eye, Transformers, Robots in disguise, Autobots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of The Decepticons

  • absolut doc

    I have that same toque! (which you non-Canadians know as a cap or beanie, I guess) Jon and I must be samesies…

  • Henryk

    Hannah….two great (yet humble) minds think alike……etc

  • DeAnn

    But what a cute, two-headed alien you live with there, my dear.

  • Lavanotes

    It’s a great picture- of course. But it’s SO unsettling at the same time. Some crazy hybrid mutation thingamabob. Yeah. That.

  • Zette

    I’ve been reading your blog for only a few months now (found it by way of a friend). I knew nothing of you, your blog or the hell you went thru when I started reading, and I’m kinda glad, as I see you more as a regular person, than some “famous” persona.

    Anyhow, I really enjoy your blog and the wonderful pics you post. But after seeing this pic, I FINALLY just had to write.

    Your daughter has got some of the biggest most beautiful eyes, and the way they stand out in this pic is amazing! I remember wrapping up my kids like this in cold weather! They loved “hiding” in my big oversized jackets with only their faces sticking out! What FUN!

    Well, take care! Thanks for the great blog and pics!


  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Yeah, what she said :0)

  • DTG202338KJANO5

    The eyes have it!

  • Chris


  • coskel

    squish – I KNOW Boras and Beltran are MLB, but in Detroit we just don’t all fired up over the baseball – a little yeah, but its not as important as HOCKEY!!

  • mrs. george #2

    CHUCK FRIDAY! Bring it, sister.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Is Chuck in there, too?

  • shaunacat

    Ahhhhh – beautiful picture!!! A girl and her daddy. :o )

  • Colleen

    What is going on? Am I first? I’m so confused! Great picture! Snuggly goodness.



  • Molly


  • jenn

    How cute

  • Wendy

    She looks SO not thrilled, but yet really freakin adorable all at the same time.

  • leontine

    You didn’t really sound like you were crying – I would have thought you were just laughing ruefully at the foolishness of your youth or some such thing. Anyway, I thought you sounded very poised and professional and grown up.

  • Wicked H


  • Alena

    How cute! I love her very nonchalant expression.

  • Sarah

    It’s like, multi-person peek-a-boo. Or a cotton igloo…

    Or something.

  • La Pixiatrix

    Thank you for doing the interview. I have referred a couple of friends to listen. Good advice, may keep some folks out of the turmoil of being dooced.

  • chickenflicken

    The Leta Caterpillar has attached herself to the Scruptious Bearded Daddy, cocooning for warmth and her metamorphosis into a toddler. In the spring, the Leta will emerge with longer hair and longer limbs, capable of bringing grown women to tears with her innate cuteness.

    I don’t know.

    And PS – from one Southern Girl to another, you don’t sound one bit Southern, Honey. ;)
