An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Rhinestone Cowgirl

  • Ha! What a cute picture! I certainly don’t mind the Leta photo attacks. Keep ’em coming!

  • buick

    It’s been nice to see more pictures of her lately, actualy. It boggles my mind how fast she’s growing.

  • I don’t think I could ever get tired of Leta pics.

    And Fish? You rock…you have a blog of your own?

    Happy Trails!

    Your post today about Ladies Night was hillarious.
    My favorite portion was the following:
    “…Ladies Night. I hate calling it that because it sounds like I took off my apron, sighed with the back of my hand pressed to my forehead…”
    great imagery.

    Then my husband heard me laughing at another part and asked me which one. It was “The sensor detected the hand-waving, but not the handstand. It also detected the jumping-jack, but not the flashing of the middle finger.”

    So now I’m thinking: I wonder if you’d do well to write a kid’s book? your turn of phrase combined with photography could be much cooler than the typical artist illustrations in most kid’s books…

    I posted the shizzolated and Leta-olated lyrics in honor of Fish (and Dooce)…

    This be Fish weblog

  • Laurie

    Her expression just says “Go ahead punk, make my day” 🙂

    Leta pictures are always awesome. 🙂

  • i agree w/ diane. the leta pics are cute, but we also need more of, like, drunk people & weird stuff so we can show how witty we can be.
    (i’m the guy who came up with “boobsicles”)

  • More breastmilk!

  • Mo

    totally blase.
    Like “yeah, i was born riding horses. Ain’ no thang. Why, you about to make something of it??”

  • Liz

    That is the most precious expression! She is an absolute doll!

  • Hah! Baby wipes are good for EVERYTHING! My daughter is nearly potty trained and I still carry them in my purse because they are so damn handy!

  • Look at the size of that left cheek! Holy sweet Jesus!

  • Great horse! And look at Leta’s lashes. WOW!

  • Leta should be a baby model for GAP. DROOL.

  • if leta ever makes her way to boston, i will eat her.

  • ADD

    In every picture that you post of Sweet Leta, I *cannot get over* how long her fingers are. I know with you and DJ Blurb for parents she is destined to be tall, but it still gets me every time.

  • Cristina

    We are in love too.

    Gap. Definitely. My sister-in-law works for the Gap. If you are interested I could ask around and see who you should talk to.

  • That picture cracks me up. Leta is a hoot.

    Kudos for taking some time for yourself! My sister-in-law hasn’t left the house alone since her first child was born (3 yrs ago). She’s a little scary now.

    Speaking of the Thursday night line up, did you catch ER? My boyfriend, Dr. Luka Kovach was trying to save Ray Liota from an internal hemmorage. It was the sweetest, most heartbreaking episode…i had a little tiny meltdown. I love that show.

  • She’s just totally coolin’ up there, like “Don’t talk to me unless you’ve got my double-mocha-frappe-latte-chino. Can’t you see I’m on the horse here!”

  • How could we ALL not be a little bit in love! She is SO adorable!

  • What a beautiful rocking horse. Leta’s gorgeous as usual.

  • That horse reminds me of one my grandmother gave to me. Ride,Leta,ride!!
    BTW–I just ran your site through the Shizzolator that Fish so kindly linked to, and over on the right where it says ‘DONATE:PAYPAL,AMAZON’ changed to ‘DONATE:PAYPAL,THA BIG ASS RIVER’. I greatly enjoyed that, probably because I’m at work and bored outta my mind.

  • just wanted to add: It roks that a post from me, SuMMer, came after a post from Spring. How coincidental. LOL.

  • If I were Leta’s mommy then your viewers would never seen another picture that wasn’t Leta. Except a rare Chuck or Jon picture.

  • autumn

    am I next? did that work?

  • autumn


  • look at those eyelashes..just look at um….how could you not be in love?

    (the horse is very nice also)

  • J

    I *want* daily photos of Leta. I love seeing her smooshy face! She’s making me want children, which is most excellent, since DH is on a Kid Kick and wants ’em TODAY.

  • excellent craftsmanship

  • nat library

    didn’t you promise to stop beating my ovaries with the cute hammer? good grief, woman.

  • Leta looks like she’s in Marlboro country…

  • Susie

    I just did a horrible, hilarious thing. I took Jon’s beautiful, poignant, deep “Refurbished” and ran it through the aforementioned Shizzolator. Still poignant, but with a little different um, flavor. Er, flavuh.

  • no problemo. i love seeing new piccies of her. she’s just so darn CUTE.

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.
