An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Hand, yummy

  • Southern Fried Girl

    Man, she is precious. I love when kids try to shove their entire fists in their mouths. LOL!!!

  • She is a beaut. But I sweat it’s those damn mormon genes.


  • lovely hair, are you going to let it grow or will you have it cut often?

  • Ok. I have to say she is the cutest damn thing EVER. AND she has daughter is 17 months and is still bald. Too freakin cute.

  • She looks so grown up in that picture…except for the fact that, you know, she’s eating her hand. Oh, wait, I know some grown-ups that do that…nevermind.

  • Carol

    She is a doll!! This is the first pic I’ve seen where she is starting to look like a little girl and not so much like a baby.
    Mrs. S – cottonheadedninnymuggin… LOL!

  • Oh, man. That article is TOO funny! My favorite part:

    Another would-be juror said he had had alcohol problems and was arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover officer. “I should have known something was up,” he said. “She had all her teeth.”


  • Bang our ovaries dooce, BANG!

    We are mazochists..

  • Must stick whole hand in mouth.

  • Jena

    She is too cute for words! You can tell she has such a little personality from her pictues. Keep giving us more Leta!

  • Are you Chaotic Carol or another Carol?

  • Taylor

    And Leta, what beautiful eyes you have!

  • RazDreams

    Let’s all try to guess what the “B” is for. My first guess is Barbara. Or Blessed. (After all, isn’t one of her sister’s named “September”?!)

  • More pink!! What a little pumpkin!

  • Carol

    Mrs. S – just regular Carol : )

  • _B_ stands for Bite Me Bitches

  • Oh come now…she is flipping you off.

  • Too sweet! I like how Leta & I have the same hair in the mornings. (Well, I don’t know if that’s her morning hair, per se, but it sure looks like MY morning hair.) Somehow it looks a lot more stylin’ on her. 😉

  • She’s so adorable.

  • In a moment of sheer Apple-Doesn’t-Fall-Far-ness, Heather does the exact same thing when Jon starts growing a beard each year…

    On an unrelated note, I’ve been going around saying “Gobogobo” non-stop since I read the NPR post.

  • Lori

    Has anyone pointed out that Leta is not only wearing pink, she’s wearing PINK FLOWERS?

  • Cate

    Isn’t the B for Boone? I’m pretty sure it is.

  • Tom


  • I think B is for Bitch Ass Ho Motherfucker. That is *so* Avon.

  • the B is for Bootylicious, DUH.

  • Andrea in Canada

    Seeing cutie Leta this morning jogged my memory on my dream last night. I was watching Leta at my house and she took her first steps! She was all wobbly and fell over but she was walking!

  • Ha!

    I totally took pictures of my butt this morning.

  • Annalise

    well thanks for clearing that up Dooce…

    hope you got royalties from Beyonce’s song title!

  • sooo…

    …does Leta have a middle name??

    Im not up with my ex-mormon middle-name-giving practices!

  • TheIleana: stupid AOL
    MrsStrayNy: mmmhhhhmmmm
    MrsStrayNy: do you dooce?
    TheIleana: good morning?
    MrsStrayNy: lol
    MrsStrayNy: no
    TheIleana: HAHA! I thought you misspelled douche and were asking me THAT! LMAO!
    MrsStrayNy: ugh ugh

  • Annalise

    …I mean besides from Leta Bo-Betta Fee Fi Fofeeta? Finger Eater!

    p.s ‘old school’ sing songs are totally back.

  • Someday you really have to put a fake beard on that lady, she looks EXACTLY like her father.

  • she’s so cute! I love the shirt!

  • Excuse me, but never mind the hand. Gorgeous eyes the kid has. 🙂

  • You’ve got it all wrong!

    Heather “B” Armstrong = Bootilicious

    “S”tay “A”t “H”ome “M”om = Shit Ass Ho Motherfucker.

    I love The Leta. Her eyes just OOZE love and smooches!

  • U.B.

    Man, if you paste a beard on that kid, she’s a mini-me of Jon (except for the furrowed brow).

  • Julie

    What time is the interview on?

    Someone? ANYONE?

  • you are not going to believe what I have managed to pull off to be able to listen to NPR today.

    Computers have been moved. I might get in trouble from the IT department.

  • Annalise

    Okay, so it’s 3am and Im STILL up, and kinda getting pangs of post midnight muchies….BESIDES fingers (thanks Leta for the suggestion) who can recommend the perfect 3am snack?

  • Carol

    annalise – PB&J with lays potato chips and milk.

  • Madame Munchie Madness

    Hmmm inspiring choice Carol but I said I have the munchies, not that Im in the late craving stages of pregnancy! lol

    p.s is that peanut butter and jam ON the chips or just stick a spoon in each jar?

  • 1:00 pm Utah time.

  • Holy little Jon Bat Man!

    Can’t wait to hear Leta’s interview later!

  • Heather B. Armstrong,

    I regret to inform you that while you do fall into the “Great ass”, “DAMN!” and “PaaDOW!” categories, you do not have enough booty per square inch to be considered what the kids are calling, “bootylicious”.

    Take heart for it is in these hard times that HE is closest.


  • Em

    Her hair is cracking me up. Mmm, my delicious hand!

  • She’s starting to look less like a baby and more like a little girl.


  • latebloomer

    ..not only is it cracking you up Em, it’s made Leta ec-STATIC!

    boom boom tish

Heather B. Armstrong

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.
