An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

I know you’re not going to believe this, but neither one of us is stoned

  • Marcia


  • I’ve never been so high.

  • Sandy

    Pure joy! I love it!

  • e

  • 4th! Woo!

  • Awesome! Your loyal viewers/readers will be happy to see you grinning so much! That is a true friendship photo.

  • Guten Tag!!

  • sweet! you guys look great 🙂

  • ANOTHER smiling HBA shot! Gimme some of them happy pills!

  • Morning!
    What a great picture…..I follow Beth’s blog too – I just love her take on Motherhood as much as yours….hope everyone is doing well!

  • It’d be a lot cooled if you were….

    (Dazed and Confused Matthew McCauhnahey voice!)

  • Maybe not stoned but perhaps a bit buzzed.
    Hope you had a great time.

  • ellyn

    yay for fun! you guys look gloriously happy!

  • Dale

    I confess, I am a dooce addict. I had my first dooce dream last night where I flew out to spend a day with Heather and the family.

    I promise, I’m not stalker scary crazy, just love to read your site! You have a great writing style.

    Keep it up!

  • Monica

    So what did she just say that made you laugh so much?

  • “Not necessarily stoned, but…beautiful…”
    (Jimi Hendrix)

  • I saw the finger (in the thumbnail) and thought it was another pic of Leta.
    Imagine my joy to see your huge grins and friendship just shining out at me.
    I am smiling back at you. Even if you can’t see it.

    Oh, and I don’t want to imply that I don’t enjoy pics of Leta. I just derive a lot of happiness from seeing the happiness of others.

  • Lisa S

    Hey – Courtney stole my comment! Damn it!

  • Lisa

    Hehehehe. Nice pic. What was so funny??

  • Denise

    Love the “fingernail” thumbnail!

  • J. Canuck

    You have what my brother refers to as the “Universal High”- no drugs necessary.

    Although according to his theory this generally happens when two other people are smoking up and your the sober third (and fourth in this case)person. Which begs the question: Just what are Jon & Dave up to behind the camera???

  • It’s so lovely to see you looking happy, Dooce 🙂

  • Janie

    There is absolutely nothing like laughing with your friends. Great photo 🙂

  • Oh please. You expect us to believe that? Beth totally has the pre-exhale, post-bong hit face going on there.

    However, I am envious of her healthy-looking fingernails. And it’s nice to see more pics of you smiling! Or laughing uncontrollably. Whatever.

  • You look so happy!

  • Susie

    Girlfriends! My 7-year-old daughter said of her best friend, “Bailey and I think things are funnier than other people do.” Isn’t that a perfect definition of a best friend?

  • That is the universal Moms-whose-children-have-finally-fallen-asleep look.

  • al

    #26 so not first, Laughing at a mans expenxe no doubt

  • Southern Fried Girl

    Love the pics of you laughing and smiling. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  • Southern Fried Girl

    Wait, Beth has a blog too – what is her address?

  • Cristin


  • scorp

    Beth’s blog is 🙂

  • Cristin

    um, I meant “=” duh

  • karen

    yes well, I’m high enough for the both of you then.

  • Courtney, you nailed it with the Hendrix quote.

  • Everybody must get stoned!

    (You’re right. I don’t believe you.)

  • That looks like one hell of a joke Heather. Let us in on it.

  • Ladies, Colgate wants you for their next advert!

  • Yeah, what’s so funny ladies?

  • I have a feeling there’s a story behind the laughing!

    That’s what best friends are for.

  • Oh, now I think photos like this are completely awesome. I can feel the happy from all the way over here!

  • excellent picture, excellent happy.
    i would say “hope you had fun” but it’s clear we’re beyond that. GLAD you had fun. 🙂

  • Aww, that’s excellent! You can’t beat having a good friend.

  • That’s what friends are for.. to share moments like that.

  • CHEERS to that. Friends are the best. I’m glad you have each other, Heather!

  • yo, duuuude, what’s the joke?
    (said in that “I’m holding it in” voice)

  • sam

    Wow, the lack of comments on Saturday sure illustrates how many people are wasting company time on this website during the work week. 🙂

    Slackers unite!

  • You see, it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.

  • That is fairly unbelievable.

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.
