    Many congratulations! On the nicely-done room, sure-sure… but for a reason to change it all again in seven months – Yay! 😀

    Nice job! I’m stuck painting the inside of the house, and we’ve already blown far more than $300 on “Ice Blue” latex paint from the Home Depot.

  • Jen

    2003/06/10 at 3:25 pm

    Great way to sneak that in there. Congratulations. I think that’s kind of an odd thing to say when you’re having a baby, but everyone else said it so it must be right, somehow.

  • Sara, Brad and George

    2003/06/10 at 3:26 pm

    Heather, Did you see the big plane that flew into the apartment building on Spaulding and Rosewood!! ?? Only one block closer and it would have gone right into Leroy! CRAZY! Did they show it on the news in Utah? Are you allowed news from other states???? let me know. kiss chuck for me!

  • Naaman

    2003/06/10 at 3:28 pm

    OMG, Congratulations!!!

    I’m picturing blonde, curly-haired babies with big, fuzzy beards.

  • Honey Bear

    2003/06/10 at 3:29 pm

    Here is a tip from The Honey Bear: kids of all ages and sexes LOVE the Honey Bear. Buy your child a stuffed Honey Bear. It is kinder than buying a live Honey Bear like me, and cost less, too. But don’t be fooled by thoses bitches Teddy Ruxpin and Winnie the Pooh; they are not honey bears, but on the contrary, they are my enemies. I swear, if I see that fucker Winnie again and I’m gonna smash 40 ounces of Misery over his head. Congratulations on your impregnation and teach the little human child to hate Winnie the Pooh and Teddy Ruxpin and to love HONEY BEAR.

    The handsome bearded virile Armstrong must be so pleased with his potent little wigglers. Best to the four of you (including Chuck, of course.)

  • the mighty jimbo (again)

    2003/06/10 at 3:43 pm

    i assume you already have the book “everyone poops.”

    well, everyone but you dooce. but regardless, if you do not, it would be my pleasure to send a copy to you as a baby gift and sincere thanks for all the countless hours of procrastination you have provided over the last year.

    hell, if stories of your dog, utah, and constipation have been that much fun, i CAN”T WAIT for pregnancy and baby stories. talk about material!

    DaRhonda Dooce?
    DarmaLu Dooce?
    ahh… my fave D’Bessoudo Dooce. assuming it’s a grrrlll…
    rather assuming of me!
    Zoochie Dooce? That sounds frighteningly close to that song on Jay and Silent Bob… Jeddi Nephi Dooce? I’m having WAY too much fun. almost makes you wish you were mormon… well…
    Congratulations and all the best. And beautiful room… but can’t wait to see it in 7 mos. Nor to hear about the fiascos that ensue when you redo it… stay away from paint cans stored in hi places!

    Wow, dooce! I am so excited for you. The world needs more hip mamas… check out the Web site http://www.hipmama.com

    2003/06/10 at 4:03 pm

    Congrats, Dooce. I predict that room will not last as a guest room for a whole seven months. Those nesting hormones will probably kick in sometime around September… I wish for you an easy and uneventful pregnancy.

  • Pat

  • christa

    2003/06/10 at 4:17 pm

    Awesome! I have to agree with Angel and say that I have never been so happy for someone I didn’t know! Yay, babies!!

  • Los Feliz freak

    2003/06/10 at 4:25 pm

    While I’m thrilled for you personally, Dooce, I mourn the thought of this site turning into a font of gurgling baby photos and baby poop stories. Please promise you’ll spare us that.

    I’m *such* a tard. I was baffled as to why you posted a picture of a toothbrush. It wasn’t until comment no.38 that I figured it out. Congratulations.

    p.s. don’t pin the kid with some weird name though. And if it’s a boy, promise you won’t dress him up like Little Lord Fauntleroy in green velvet shorts and ruffled shirt. I had an aunt that did that to one of my cousins….poor kid.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
