    That picture of Leego with Jon at the piano is the cutest thing, EVER EVER EVER. I didn’t even think I wanted babies, but it turns out…I want YOUR baby! Not in the dirty way though, that sounded bad. :-\ Too cute, Dooce! You should be tremendously proud!

    Okay, Vaida, you are officially Vaida-be-bored-at-work! And I think that might be a toothbrush, too!

  • http://desperateworkingmommas.blogspot.com/ cat

    A cat. Heh. Good one. But actually, I can see a cat getting it on with a small poodle. Maybe a chihuahua?

  • http://www.jenieb.blospot.com Jenie

    Yawn! Count me in as being bored at work! Thanks goodness I have ya’ll for entertainment!

  • Vaida

    My cat is brave. I think she would go for a German Shepard.

  • Vaida

    Dear Digruntled & Cynical,
    You’re name is fitting.

  • http://www.goblinbox.com Mush

    Oh, that description the Moment That Could Stop Wars was sooooooo cute and wonderful and priceless and wonderful!

  • Vaida

    Correction: YOUR name….Forgive my typo. I was distraced by WORKING.

    Yay countdown! 1 hour 29 minutes!

    Babies touching your face is the best. My niece was touching my face as I fed her a bottle the other day. It made my heart crumble into a million pieces and tears come to my eyes. Then she pulled my hair really hard and I really started crying. But she’s 4 months, so she is allowed.

  • Vaida

    ANOTHER typo!!! YIKES. I think I should be done for the day with this.

  • Vaida

    28 Minutes for me!

    HA HA

    After reading Leta’s 14 month letter…

    Not. Getting. Emotional. At. Work.

    For real…

  • Muffy

    Wow. It only took 121 comments until the “I’m bored, so I think I’ll harrass and belittle others for their thoughts and musings” people come out of their dark little holes. I am a VERY sarcastic person (to know me is to debate about something topical for at least an hour or until I win – I usually win) but I would NEVER criticize (unless criticism was being sought – it is part of a creative process, and appropriate in that respect). D & C and others like should find a different forum than this to vent their feelings. That’s my 2 cent rant, and I totally stand by it.

    Berta – You reminded me of a story.

    Long ago when I was in college, my school went to the Cotton Bowl in Texas. I went with the rest of the marching band (I played the flag) and stayed for New Years Eve.

    I went out with some friends, and just before midnight, a TV show show began talking about the new smoking ban going into effect in California as of 12:01, January 1st.

    A native Texan started laughing, “Hippies! They better not try that shit in Texas! Ha! Cause we’ve got guns!”

    We got the hell outta there.

    If I ever make it up to Utah – I am soooo going to dognap chuckles – he’s tooooooo cute!

  • Vaida

    What is the Marlboro Man without his cigarette??

    He’s not a bad boy anymore! Just a guy with a hat and a horse!

    Sigh.

  • Win

    Dooce, you know what you do with stories like today’s?

    You wind my biological clock so tight it threatens to shake itself apart.

  • Vaida

    Of course, I’ve never even BEEN to Texas.

  • http://www.jenieb.blospot.com Jenie

    Muffy….shhh….maybe if we ignore ‘em, they’ll go away….

  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    I know there’s lots of nice people in Texas pleasedon’thitme…

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Doesn’t usually work Jenie, but it’s worth a shot. Anyway, it is good to see that Leta is already practicing good dental hygiene.

  • http://lawbrat.com lawbrat

    nobody is gonna hit you SP! I promise. I’ve never been to Texas either, but one of my best friends lives there. I may go visit him over this break coming up. I went to visit him in Arizona a few months ago, and I fell in love with that state!

  • Disgruntled and Cynical

    Well, I’m stickin’ by it too, Muffy.

  • Berta

    SP, that is a funny story! Actually, that cowboy should have kept his mouth shut because they are gonna ban smoking in restaurants here in Houston…bummer! KBBAW and I are really pissed off about it!

  • http://lawbrat.com lawbrat

    I love those newsletters. Dooce writes in such a way that almost every mom relates. The good, the bad, and the button pushing!

  • Muffy

    You know what I don’t get about the whole “smoking ban”, in places like bars and restaurants in NY and CA, is that I NEVER open the paper and read “Man Dies in Bar after inhaling Second Hand Smoke”, but I DO know I read alot about “Drunk Driver Kills Mother/Toddler”, “Teenagers Killed In Crash after Party in Woods”….and yet, I never see “Alcohol to be Banned in Bars and Restaurants”. Whassupwitdat?

  • Am I the only sensible one here?

    Hey guys, ever notice how Heather doesn’t come in here and chat with you and how she probably doesn’t read your blogs? Hmmm….

  • Vaida

    Well, do you want a tag along for the road trip? We could meet some sexy cowboys! Or….are YOU a cowboy? Hmmmmm

  • Disgruntled and Cynical

    Hi, I’m sorry I’m such a bitch. It’s my time of the month and I haven’t gotten any for quite some time. Ignore all my previous and future comments.

  • Breanna Rollings

    Dammit! Every monthly newsletter, I promise myself I won’t cry, and the last paragraph gets me EVERY TIME. This one was by far the best – the way you described that nose-to-cheek moment… my God. I don’t have kids, but the very chance of moments like that makes me want them someday. And Leta? She is BEAUTIFUL.

  • Muffy

    To Sensible and Cynical, you both have small points, to a degree, and all I’m going to say is…there is something for everyone in this world. That’s why we have indie films, 4,000 flavor combinations at Starbucks, and you can even make Eminem your rington (for 3 dollars). Hey,its a free world. But I just don’t understand the logic of the “caped commenters”, who fly in and drop their ugliness on us weirdos in Dooceland who have found their spot on the beach. Kick sand somewhere else. I’m trying to catch some rays. You’re in my light.

  • Berta

    I agree Muffy, I know that not everyone wants to smell our smoke, but the drunk driving is definitely a problem! I think having a “smoking section” is good enough so as not to offend the non-smokers!

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com kristine

    Yeah, i’m trained.
    See Chuck…think it’s Friday.

  • http://www.suitablegirl.com A N N A

    what breanna said. *sniffle*

  • Vaida

    Can’t we all just get along?? I’m on the beach too. Who is bringing me a margarita?

  • Vaida

    I wish I could be more emotional and sentimental, but…..OH WELL.

  • http://talkingtoad.blogspot.com/ TulsaOkie

    Oh wow… What a wonderful monthly newletter!! You have such a way with words. Happy 14 Month Birthday Leta!!

  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    Berta and Muffy – I actually miss non-smoking bars now that I’m in PA. I could go to a bar, get wasted, wake up hungover and late for work, and cut corners in the shower because my hair didn’t have that I-spent-last-night-getting-drunk-in-a-bar smell.

    They should bottle that bar smell.

    “I’m so confused!” said in my best Vinnie Barbarino voice.

    I didn’t know it was Friday already.

    Please tell me you know who Vinne Barbarino is.

    It’s not just the smelling of the smoke. It is the smelling of smoke when leaving a place…and the harm that second hand smoke does in general. You may not hear of anyone dropping dead of it immediately, but I developed asthma because of it…and that is only because I visited my grandma [a heavy smoker] every Saturday when I was younger. yay for asthma…and not being able to breathe. It’s fun.

  • Cynical yet Sensible

    It’s difficult not to notice the dynamic that goes on in here- ass-kissing of Heather, imitation of Heather, dreaming of Heather and her child, create-your-own-blogs-in-which-your-language-is-strikingly-similar-to-Heather’s, drool over a semi-cute baby, etc.

    How do any of you know I’m a woman- so that saying “I’m on my period” could even be relevant?

  • Muffy

    Berta, NOTHING is good enough for a non-smoker. My brother is a non-smoker and he’s a major PAIN IN THE ASS about it. Will sit there IN A RESTAURANT with a wet napkin over his nose. I don’t see my brother much anymore. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I would personally like a Corona. Look at that whacko dude in the Speedo over there!

    Essence of Boozehound

  • Muffy

    Understandable, Disgruntled. I’ve got the rottweiller on my ovaries today as well. I have to have my wedding dress fitted in two days, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m not a bloated, bridezilla mess. (PS to ALL…You are witnessing a KINDER and GENTLER Muffy. I’d usually burn these people, but I’m feeling good. It’s spring, I’m in love, and I’ve found a website where I can talk about poop. I could die tomorrow.)

  • http://kassipinkdot.blogspot.com/ Kassi

    I guess if clean air is too much to ask, then yeah, nothing is good enough for a non smoker…

    I don’t mind if you smoke…do you mind if I fart?

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    There is nothing semi-cute about Leta – she is 100% Ovary-Knocking Grade-A adorableness. At least in my ass kissing opinion.

  • Vaida

    Okey Dokey Artichokey.
    It’s 5:00 my time.
    That means time to go home!!
    WHOO HOO
    Have a good night!
