the smell of my desperation has become a stench

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

    quote from
    “the unexpected – Today I was driving around trying to find the post office and an interview with Dooce came on the radio.”

    Dooce on the radio…do tell.

    Dooce! Beth! That is really an AWESOME picture! Your genuine smiles made me smile all the way over here in Illinois. 🙂

    Thank you!

    So people want to see more pink on Leta, and suddenly we get about 150 pictures of Leta wearing pink.

    Then there were complaints that there were no pictures of Dooce smiling…and we’re inundated.

    No WAY I’m complaining—you have a famtastic smile, Heather, and I think I wanna have your babies—but I’m starting to see a pattern here. I’m just trying to think of a cool way to abuse it. (-;

    Ok, I know the whole poopong at work discussion was a few days ago, but I just saw this quote, and through my time at, it took on a whole new meaning for me..

    I can’t believe I’m the first to say: “Aww, that’s too bad!”

    Reminds me of some of the best times I had with my best friend, although it was years ago…. Heather, be happy, enjoy life. Don’t let it get the best of you. Oh, and please kiss Leta’s cheeks, and toes for me.
    My daughter is slipping away from me at age 10+, she still snuggles, wants the Mom time, but it’s NOTHING like the age Leta is at. Enjoy.:)))

    Photo of Chuck yesterday: 444 comments.
    Photo of dooce and Beth today: 112 comments and counting.

    From this we can only conclude: Chuck is roughly four times cuter than these women.

    I don’t know if Chuck is CUTER, Peter, it’s just that Dooce gets all huffy when you scratch her behind the ears.

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.
