I also email Mrs-icky-pink writing. I have a feeling that she got buried!! Hee-hee.
I think that if my handle were “sassietrousers” i would have a stick up my ass too.
So some women have orgasms -more power to them! I caught my own baby in a water birth in my living room. It was definitely painful but also fucking amazing and certainly does not a sick freak make me. I think its The Aftermath, as dooce has so awesomely coined it, that has sucked like nothing else. The Aftermath is why its a damn good thing that babies are so cute! More than anything, I don’t think its a competition, and it bites that anyone would criticize Heather or any other new mama for complaining ALL WE WANT!
ihatetoast – Are you saying that Full House ISN’T a great comedy? o_O
Super cool pic! The dog looks so stylin. Elitist! LOL It’s the opposite of my recent chihuahua shot http://www.electricboogaloo.net/archives2004_09/13/index.htm
because I am a very easily amused person, I ran That Email through the Shizzolator (http://www.asksnoop.com/):
Email: I Lack da Fibre
Friday, 24 September 2004
I read some of yo’ website ‘n quite frankly wuz astonished that yo’ ass are a person that has had a child at izzallâ€¦.” .I think some muthas should just leave such wonderful experiences those who has da stamina ‘n fibre do such things!!!
Having a baby is a WONDERFUL experience, down da labor pains ‘n tearingâ€¦ n’ shit. .I think by after 7 months yo’ ass should seriously be over this!!!
I think it gives it a nice touch, personally. Picturing some uppity woman with tapered khakis and a polo shirt with a sweater draped over her shoulders saying it like that in a British accent gives me the giggles.
Bwaha Heathyrre! I put it through the “english to 12 year old AOLer” translator.

chieka is heather’s friends’ dog from her trip to san francisco.
I love the way the dogs eyes are so delicately closed with its little doggy mouth in a faint smile. Is this dog the picture of Zen or what?
Holy crap Reagan, that is so wicked funny!
However, this line: “HAVNG11111!1!1!1!!1!!11! OMG LOL A BABY IS A WONDERFUL AXPEREINCE DOWN 2 DA LABOR PANES AND T3ARNGâ€¦.I!!!!1!11” Is not something I’d ever want to hear coming from the mouth/keyboard of any 12 year old AOLer! (OMG)
I don’t have children. I don’t want children. However, that does not mean I don’t think that kids are (from a distance) amusing and also “our future.” That doesn’t mean that I don’t find a website like dooce’s to be funny and poignant and OMG LOL!111 (sorry, couldn’t help it).
I think there’s always going to be someone out there that just knows everything and feels they must share all of their wisdom. I routinely get told that I’m a horrid person because I don’t want babies (shudder) and would rather adopt an older child when I am fiancially secure. Apparently, in some circles, that’s on the same level as being a drug dealer.
Obviously Ms. Pink speaks for all woman Heather. I bet she is the head of the PTA or some damn thing.
I am a male who has raised a daughter during the day while the wife worked. Then I headed off to work at night. The one thing I learned is that EVERY womans birthing experience is unique. It pisses me off that pink could be so narrow minded. That type of thinking throws feminism back 100 years. The more you talk about your experience the more you remind other women there is a unique experience sandwitched between a common bond. My wife and I had a miscarrage a few years back. It was hell for her. I just tried to be there to get her to talk. We got through it together and are stronger for it. I can bet Ms. Pink
never had that companionship. As for our daughter I think this child rearing crap worked. At 17 years old she has an interview as a part time programmer on Monday. She tells me that she does not need a boyfriend to validate herself and that for now she would rather have friendships with boys. Did I mention we talk alot about everything and she reads you as a result of my suggestion. From that reading she has another new perspective on the wide vista that
is her life.
right on don! we are the same way with our son, he’s 3. he’s already got such a different outlook on things–and you can really tell. at his first soccer game yesterday he got rotated out, and instead of crying about it, he stood there cheering his little heart out for his team. all you can do is expose yourself and your kids to different experiences and hope to learn something, good or bad from it all. one of the most important things to realize, i think IS THAT EVERYBODY AND EVERY SITUATION IS DIFFERENT. you don’t know every single detail about every single thing that makes things the way they are. you have no right to make snap judgments or assume your way is the one and only way. who wants to have a stick shoved that far up their ass, what fun is that? you don’t learn a damn from it–judgment is such a waste of time, what does it do for you? even if the woman who wrote that email disagreed, she could have been at least constructive instead of just slamming our rockin’ REAL girl heather, not a person hiding behind anything, or trying to make us all think she’s something she’s really not. if my son grows up to have respect for all things–people, their situations, decisions, property, etc. and has some good critical thinking ability, i will be one very happy mama.
sorry about that vent, guys–people like pinky here just drive me absolutely batty, and i’m feelin’ fierce this morning. someone, throw a ‘hot fork of displeasure’ her way!
