This here bringer of the pooper to the fun party

Grandmommie and punkin head

  • Aaron: Ha! Greg has a lounge act, huh? And he performed in Vegas no less. I wonder if he wears his classic yellow shirt.

  • I have my niece on video singing the various Wiggles songs. It is the funniest thing I have ever seen (only an aunt can appreciate her true musical talents). She does a great quack quack quack . . . cock a doodle do.

  • Liz

    Punkins!

  • kassie

    Is that George in the background? George!

  • I’m so near the top!
    And the punkin is adorable (as is your mom, of course.)

  • Liz

    What’s on her shirt? I can make out a ribbon, but that’s all. Wait. Horses?

  • Cheryl

    Is that your mom the Avon Sales Leader holding cutest baby EVER!!

  • This has to be the most photogenic child ON THE PLANET!
    Living in Japan, I’m not usually up late enough to be anywhere near the top of the list, but I’m living dangerously tonight. Go me!

  • am

    Too cute!

  • Red

    Awww Thats so sweet

  • What a sweet picture. Leta will treasure that when she’s older.

    And the Boohbah thing? That show drives me nuts ’cause they sound like newborn kittens. However, knowing now its power over babies, I may have to re-think my whole Boohbah position. (Now that DOES sound like a breastfeeding reference.)

    *Goes to get baby and check TV schedule.*

  • Leta: “Grandmommie, your skin is so soft… What sort of skin care product do you use?”

  • Julie

    Back to Boobah…

    Boobah is Baby Crack. Keep Leta far, far away!

  • That smile is adorable!

  • DeeGee

    I’m sorry… What the heck is a Boohbah?

    I hear ya on Top Gun and the first feelings in the “bathroom area”… LOL. Except, mine was with Risky Business. Train scene… wheeee-oooooh I was turned out by a gay man. Who knew?

  • They both look so happy. What a damn great picture.

  • that’s the best Leta smile, ever 🙂

  • Damn that kid is cute! And I dont mean like a Fat girl who is cute if she lost weight, i mean cute as in a bunny rabbit

  • Julie I think sometimes you just really need your baby to have crack.

  • Dre

    Do you think my co-workers would look at me funny if I started pinching and smooching at my computer monitor?

  • Sarah

    GEORGE!

    And can I tell you how much I love that cowboy shirt?

  • Do I spy a fuzzy GEORGE! in the background!!?!?!

  • Julie

    I agree…but now my sweetie is 18 mo. old and all she does whenever we are near a TV is push the remote control onto us and into our tummies (mine still flabby from having her 🙂 ) and say Bahboo, Bahboo, Bahboo, Bahboo, Bahboo (her version of Boohbah)…getting progressively more and more urgent and loud until she breaks down into a sobbing puddle of baby when we tell her that Boobah is “sleeping.” It gets ugly!!! Oh…the horrors of Boohbah addiction…and we never even saw it coming. Elmo can’t even compare to Boohbah…

  • red

    your mother is absolutely gorgeous.

  • hayley

    it’s so *not* a cowboy shirt. it’s english-horse-jumping-show paraphernalia.

  • First time and even in the top 50. I’m flattered.
    But TC gay? Isn’t being a scientologist enough?

  • KS

    My husband always cracks me up by singing “Pooo-baaall” in place of the melodic “Boooh-baaah!”

  • H in Chicago

    Did I miss a public announcement that Tom Cruise is gay or is this all conjecture on your part??????

  • Liz

    Boohbah is crack. The first time I saw it I had no clue what it was. Twenty-one minutes later? Nope, still don’t.

  • Oh dooce this is a moment captured. That picture made me grin ear to ear. Happy grammie and little leta smooches!
    Your readers are smiling today my dear!!

  • beachgal

    wonderful picture as usual. Do you really call her punkin head?

  • karen

    This whole blog really inspires me. I mean, my god, what an awsome legacy to leave your daughter! The story of YOUR life. The story of HER life, and the best looking family photo album EVER. Always always, I’m filing little things away – learning and promising to do the same for my future children one day.

  • Laurie

    I’m still trying to figure out if those are pencils on her sleeves, or a fence..

    My niece loves Boobah, but the show that holds total power over her is the Wiggles. (She’s 14 months) I cannot express in any coherant way how much I DESPISE the Wiggles. Esp. since I was dragged to see the Wiggles on ice by my sister with her other 3 kids under the age of 10. Wiggles on Ice is my new idea of hell.

    And yes, my crackhead sister has 4 kids under the age of 10.

  • look it’s GEORGE! in the Background!! yeah GEORGE!

  • I don’t think Tom Cruise is gay, but I DO think he is an android of some kind. He has definately been assimilated.

  • Nieuki

    This is freaky: http://www.boohbah.com/zone.html

    Maybe I’m scared to have kids and
    learn about all of these creatures.

  • That is a truly gorgeous picture. I’m guessing there are no ugly women in your family, yes?

    And you Boobah all you want, sister. People told me I was evil for exposing my kids to the Teletubbies, but we are all still alive and neither of them has drawn an upside-down pentagram on the wall for *weeks* now.

  • Leta is seriously to cute!

  • Rrrrrr. She’s so freaking cute, I cannot stand it. Can’t stands it, I say!

    I need to figure out what Boohbah is for my nephews. It kind of weirds me out b/c my friend and I always refer to breasts as boobahs. Heh.

  • Em

    That is some love and cuteness right there.

    Must. Eat. That. Face!

  • Beautiful warm shot. I love the way you cropped it for the little thumbnail. 🙂

  • The boohbahs are very, very creepy. I’m so relieved that I’m not the only one who thinks they look like giant penises. And they sound as if they are passing gas.

    However, for 30 minutes of peace and quiet, they’re worth it.

    And, for what it’s worth, the Wiggles ROCK!!! But don’t you think that Jeff is their Ringo?

  • Kano

    That is the nice thing about children….They always have smiles….Then we turn into adults

  • All this “What? Tom Cruise is gay?” talk reminds me of my sister-in-law, Margie. When Freddy Mercury died from AIDS, Margie actually, with no hint of jest or irony, blurted out “I didn’t know Freddy Mercury was gay!” And then she put her head back under the rock.

  • Jackie

    You think Boobah is great… try buying some Baby Einstein DVDs. They saved my sanity, and their much more pleasant for parents too!

  • Joan

    Sheryl must be sleeping.

  • Leta: ” Dude! I am sooo going to hurl”

  • Susan

    I have a Punkin, but she is a cat.

  • hey forget Tom Cruise – my sister-in-law didn’t realize George Michael was gay until about a year ago!!!! She was devistated.

  • kim

    there it is again: the horse-shirt.
