    Muffy, I want a Ranchwagon dog. Really bad. Where are all my girls this morning? BFE? Jessica Rabbit? Torrie, you’ve been too quiet today. ;-)

    They are having a giant ass party/orgy/boob signing without us. I am wounded.

    So, how many of you wasted time in your lives, that you’ll never get back, switching back and forth between fox news, msnbc, cnbc, etc. to watch this runaway bride circus?
    4 hours. I’m never getting it back.
    On the other hand, how many hours wasted on dooce?
    More than i can count, and they were all priceless.
    It’s people like her that showcase my reasons for being a sheep in the dooce flock.

    Ya know, if you and dj blurb ever need a baby-sitter, my weekends are usually free! Then again, I do live in Minnesota…but it’s only, what, a 15 hour drive? She certainly is the cutie patootie.

    Ah, Leta, soon you will be cruising along the furniture and your mother won’t know what hit her! Happy 15 month prety girl.

    Leta is very adorable – and is already adored by many.

    Thank you for including us in your ‘letters to Leta’. I know many of us truly love reading them.

    Erhot einen veinen schvontz. I don’t know if that is the right spelling but that is the only German I know.

    I love your monthly newsletters. You have such a gift for putting into words what a mother deals with everyday.

    You have a beautiful little girl. Loved the pics too!

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

    Actually, a Mormon friend of mine taught me how to say that little bit of German. I think it roughly means “He has a big schvontz.” I am sure you can figure out what a schvontz is.

    Big Nose????

  • Holly

    “I am a big green gas station” ???

    My favorite German phrase is “Tapetenwechsel” — it means “change of scenery,” but it literally translates to “change of carpet.”

    Sometimes I just scatter it into my everyday conversations.

    Bad words are always the first words people learn, what a shame

    Oh, the tantrums. I seriously thought my daughter needed some sort of tantrum medication when she was 15 months old. And 20 months, and 24 months, and ohmygod when she was 3 I thought *I* was going to need SOMETHING to get through the tantrums.

    Now, at 5, she’s COMPLETELY enjoyable. Charming, even! I actually want to spend time with her!

    Hang in there, Ms. Heather. This too shall (someday) pass.

  • Linda

    She is beautiful and I love your monthly letters. She looks far too cute to ever have a temper tantrum. Oh wait, I have 3 kids, I know better than that!!! LOL

    I don’t know how you do it, but for a person who REALLY wants to be a mom…you make that desire even stronger with stories of tantrums and snot…you truly do have a gift for writing Heather!!

  • Tamaran17

    What a great picture. I just finished reading through your archives (cause there is no use just starting from now…) and must say you are talented both with your writing and your camera!!

  • The Muff

    I used to know a spanish that translated into “The Donkey eats the napkin”, that my sister would say when she saw someone with a bathing suit going up the crack of their ass.
    Naralius. I’d really really love to figure out how to say that again. Fill me in? Something like “El burro laservieta something something”

  • Ziggybean

    Hang in there. Before you know it she’ll be asking for the keys to the car.
