Too tired to continue crawling

She’d been crawling around with a carrot in her hand for over a half hour and finally she just stopped, fell flat on the floor and began nibbling on it. (Jon took this photo. You should see the whole series.)

    MICHAEL BRADY (Something “Reed”) from The Brady Bunch was also a pillow biter. He died of AIDS I believe. So you can never really tell. Personally, if he IS gay, then maybe my fiancee will stop watching wrestling in my presence. I swear I lose brain cells.
    ALthough the Eugene skits do kind of crack me up. THe Forrest Gump bit was hilarious.

    Are you still talking about The Rock? Please say no. Oh my.

  • southern fried girl

    Katie, I just listened and laughed so hard that I KNOW the attorneys in offices next to mine think I was being mauled by a howler monkey. That shit was hilarious.

  • red

    you should let us see the whole series — you’re holding out on us!! :)

  • that-andrea

    Leta like a pita! Such a sweet pic, I want to see the whole set!

    As a mom of 7 furry kids I am an expert on keeping one’s floors clean. One word. Floormate.

    Of course you DO have to plug it in and use it in order to obtain clean floors, and I only seem to be able to muster the strength to do that once or twice a week (if that) these days… but really. That thing just rocks my socks.

    I have a huge sleep deficit and will for at least another few weeks… pics like these make me smiley inside when I am so tired I could just cry. So thanks!

  • Torrie

    Katie, I can’t imagine a guy named The Rock NOT being gay.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I know! I couldn’t even finish listening to it because it sounded so hysterical. And it definitely did sound like a howler monkey. I loved when the fetus would cough. That was spectacular.

    Longtime lurker but I feel the need to share…

    If you enjoy the train wreck that is Britney and her wardrobe (as I do) go here:

    Y’all, I am not comment literate, I have no idea how to make that a live link.

  • No, Really
  • Sara

    Aaaaaah! Too frickin’ cute! She looks like she has no. More. Energy.

  • southern fried girl

    WTF was that?


    The ROCK? GAY?

  • pea

    I mostly lurk and enjoy, but the mention of Tootsie Rolls always makes me think of this classic:

  • Dave M

    You all wonder how the kitchen floor is so clean… a little Pledge on that outfit would do wonders. You can’t see the front of it in the picture, can you?…

    I hate the Swiffer Wet (where the moistened pads look like something a hemmorhoid sufferer would use). Their new ad slogan should be: “You’ll Wish You Just Used a Mop”

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Apparently an Anonymous One thinks we should use instant messenger. I like Instant Dooce much better, thankyaverymuch.

  • Danika

    Thanks for the site link Moe. Very funny.

  • A regular commenter who does not wish to be stoned

    That was someone inviting you to continue your conversation on Messenger.

  • greenthumb

    this all started when I asked if bethy-mae was talking about The Rock. I don’t know these things for fact…take a deep breath ladies, uncurl and stop ‘rock-ing’ back and forth.

  • southern fried girl

    I hate MSN anyways. I got more spam when I used them than I ever did with anyone else. So MSN, you can suck it.

    1 hour and 21 minutes to go.

    This day is neverending.

  • Muffy

    Dave M. LMAO.

  • A regular commenter who does not wish to be stoned

    There is a google group for dooce, too, which would be convenient for non-photo related comments and off-topic discussions.


    I’m no lady. I’m just curious.

  • southern fried girl

    I do not stone, regular commenter. I agree that a messenger type thing would be great but it is not feasible here, so I tend to use this. So feel free to join in if you like.

  • Muffy

    Greenthumb is right. All you ladies can chill. Rumor control, Rumor control!
    Oh, and by the way, Britney is really a lesbian. Kevin/Keith (I don’tkeep up on her husband(s) names) is just her beard. HA!

  • the niffer

    Everybody must get stoned.

  • LeafGirl77

    You know… I have a problem with these disposable cleaning implements. I know they’re handy, but…I just can’t do it!

  • Allisoun

    Dave, you’re right – those “pads” on the swiffer are nasty. Then again, thats why they’re disposable.

  • LeafGirl77

    I can’t believe how absolutely disgusting that dessert looks. Who thinks these things up?

    As for MSN, I use my hotmail account ONLY for messenging with people I know and I get about 5 spam emails a day. I don’t get it.

    I’ll also still with


  • bethy-mae

    Greenie you started a riot. I was actually talking about that blog ad right below Leta’s picture. I wouldn’t look if I were you at least not this close to lunch.

  • so going to hell for this…

    remember, if you laugh, god will kill a kitten…

  • southern fried girl


    I agree – those pads are gross but they sure do come in handy with one messy dog and two furball cats. Not to mention the dirt that is just tracked in from outside.

  • LeafGirl77

    …uh…I’ll also STICK with …

  • eddo

    Heather! Is she eating directly off the floor?

    A. Those floors do look clean enough to eat off of.

    B. In order to keep the floors clean you need to keep Leta off of them, or teach her how to use the swiffer.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I am unable to download instant messenger at work. But it would be cool if Dooce opened up a separate chatting forum. Someone suggested “” or “”.

  • greenthumb

    too funny bethy-mae…what a storm we caused.

  • LeafGirl77

    Yes, you are most certainly going to HELL for that.

    And a kitten just died…

  • Mrs. Rock

    Oh. I’ll cancel that meeting with my attorney.

  • southern fried girl

    So going to hell,

    I will be right there with you because I can not catch my breath.

  • JC’s Mom

    I have to say I have wasted more time reading this site in past month. But not wasted in a bad sense. Dooce’s writing and the interesting comments make my tummy hurt. My son is in love with Leta pics. Guess he has a thing for younger girls :P (He’s almost 3) Thank You Dooce and Dooce community,

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I muffled my laughter, but I was giggling inside. We are all going to hell.

  • AndreaBT

    Pokey, we know you’re no lady. But you actually sounded *excited* about the Rock’s questionable status there for a minute. Somethin’ you wanna share?

  • LeafGirl77

    I think it was the “even the celebrities…” thing that got me.

    Guess I had better pack my bikini..

  • Torrie

    Does anyone else have a problem seeing the pictures on Self Portrait Day ( I just see empty boxes with red x’s)? Or, is it just me?
    I’ve refreshed. It’s not working.

    Try this one:

  • the niffer

    Moe – that was a great site.

    Raz – I agree. Jessica’s boobs are way better. I wish I had just a fraction of that frontage.

    Leta’s parents – you have such a cute kid.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I want to go home and make that yummy looking kitty litter cake.


    I don’t discriminate.

    It would be wrong to deprive half the population of THIS.
