This is what happens when you have to go pee, and the baby insists upon joining you

    Carefree indeed.

    Yup, Always.

  • the niffer

    Closet – until you brought up shitmist, something just seemed to be missing from today’s comments. Thanks for making me feel complete.

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    Carefree indeed.

  • Library Girl

    Whooo Hooo, Maxi Pads! The Ones With Wings Might Keep Her Occupied For 4 or 5 Seconds Longer :)

  • JP

    She is just the cutest bug in the world…I mean besides my two.

  • the niffer

    Jules – I’d love to see a “Cat and Tampon” photo journal. Thanks for the tip on a new kitty toy. My boys are so bored with their current collection.

  • Kelly

    Does anyone else find it weirdly amusing that Dooce brings the D70 with her while peeing? :-D Now THAT’S the kind of committed photographer I want to be!! LOL

  • Libraryhill

    Mrs.Strizzay, try the m&m choco-chip. mmmmmmm

  • Dee

    Always a picture moment in the bathroom!

  • Bridget

    I’m probably the hundredth person to say this but she is the cutest baby ever.

    It looks like you took the picture while sitting ON the toilet.

  • Dre

    That is hilarious! Thanks for the good laugh to start my day.

  • closet metro

    Ladybug, you’re right. I’m really hoping that Dooce uses the Clorox antibacterial wipes I sent her to clean the shitmist off of her camera and her phone.

  • christy

    Leta – Now with wings!

  • meowlam

    LOL! When I get out of the shower, at least 2 of my 4 cats are waiting for me…to lick my toes. Good thing they don’t have opposable thumbs, eh?

    Thanks for the giggle, Heather Brooke! (and the cutie pie Leta)

  • Sarah

    What I want to know is, what did she build with all those panty liners? A hat? A plane? What?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    I just got a Mrs.Fields chocolate peanutbutter cookie and its NASTY!!

  • Circus Kelli

    Oh yeah… and when the doorbell rings when you’re not quite done and you hurry up and finish and pick up the baby and answer the door with her in your arms, and she’s holding several feminine hygiene products, the person at your door will look at you funny.

    Consider yourself warned.

  • Darcie

    Last night my husband actually asked me at the dinner table, “So, how do you manage to go to the bathroom alone?” He was stunned to hear that I don’t, ever. And it’s not just the kid who joins me. The damn dog is in there, too!

  • smacks

    I think you’re doing more than peeing….

  • jess

    haha, gotta love the curiosity.

  • eva

    I love the way she’s pointing her toes :) And the thigh folds!

  • Liisa

    Manic- When you want a nice, quiet poop and you have your shadow with you…you’ll give them anything within reach to amuse them for a minute (or 10)! And, well, you can guess what is most likely going to be in reach! Not to mention… they have Stretch Armstrong-like bodies and they can get things from places you never thought they could.

  • CanadianAmy

    well at least they are ‘sanitary’ toys!

  • CanadianAmy

    Tampons… I went to all girls Catholic school and there were tons of Italian and Portuguese girls who thought I was disgusting for using tampons because their parents told them two things about tampons:

    1. They ‘break’ your virginity
    2. They give you cancer.

    Guess they REALLY didn’t want their daughters having any excuse to poke around ‘down there’!

  • Jen

    Just this morning, when i stepped out of the shower, I found my 2 year old daughter with 5 panty liners stuck to her shirt.

  • Lavanotes

    LMAO oh that’s fantastic. That’s why I trained my body to only pee during Sesame Street.

  • Adam

    I suppose it’s never too early to learn about menstruation.

  • Sarcastic Journalist

    Maxi Pads. Yum. I bet, when wet, they make good teething rings.

  • sarah

    Man I have been there.

  • Catharina

    so i just noticed that we both have up bathroom pictures today. must the camera go everywhere? YES!

    leta sure is one adorably beautiful curious little girl!!!

  • Jentle

    Ha. Insomnia really does have its uses. ;)

  • Robyn

    I have a similar picture of my pet rat (who has the disposition of a 2 year old, and I am SO not kidding. Sometimes I wish I was.) shredding a tampon.

  • Pip

    Awww, cute!

  • Dang cold…

    Teach Your Children

    You, who are on the road,
    Must have a code that you can live by.
    And so, become yourself,
    Because the past is just a good bye.
    Teach your children well,
    Their father’s hell did slowly go by.
    And feed them on your dreams,
    The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

    Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
    So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

    And you, of tender years,
    Can’t know the fears that your elders grew by.
    And so please help them with your youth,
    They seek the truth before they can die.
    Teach your parents well,
    Their children’s hell will slowly go by.
    And feed them on your dreams,
    The one they picks, the one you’ll know by.

    Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
    So just look at them and sigh and know they love you…….

    Crosby,Stills & Nash

    Sorry, just had to pop back here to spit that out. Just heard it on the radio I have at my cubicle here in 9 to 5 land and with the pic up top I thought it was a nice touch.

    cheesy yes, but whatever…I’m done.

  • contessa

    even better? you brought your camera INTO THE BATHROOM. Priceless!

  • Jentle

    So. Cute.

  • teri

    Whatever it takes!

  • Kristen

    Cutest baby ever. SO funny

  • Marcie

    Been there, done that!

  • Katie

  • song

    a friend of mine, when she was 2, took her mother toilet bin full on wonderous used goodies and used it as a space mask withs adi goodies trailing behind her. She paraded around the living room in front of company – the sad thing was her dad was the pastor of our church. I don’t know what she regrets more, that she did it or that she told all us about it.

    Leta is so cute. And she’s even reaching for more fun toys!

  • Sarah

    Happy Birthday to Leta girl!!

  • bushra

    happy propah birthday leta!

    of course, there’s nothing with letting little princess leta have two birthdays.

  • bushra

    there’s nothing wrong, innit. i mean ‘there’s nothing with letting little princess leta have two birthdays.’

    oh, bugger.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Happy Birthday beaner bug!

  • Wicked H


    Wishing you many, many happy returns and the ability for us to share in the happiness.

  • Kassi

    I am not sure how to wrap my head around this line of conversation…
    Abandoned feces, used tampon trumpets, rocketing dildos, and by the way…”Happy Birthday” to a 2 year old sweetie…all in the same breath.

  • Amanda B.

    Happy Birthday Leta Muchkin!
