An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Eli sharing his big book with Leta: UBER CUTE

  • Isn’t it annoying when the person who was FIRST keeps coming on and commenting about it?

    I think so. Except when it’s ME who was FIRST!

  • don’t ban the mac catalogues!!, every thing in them is so pretty. and so nicely designed. so nicely designed.

    osx is so much better than windows. my stupid dell has somehow gotten a virus this weeekend, luckily the new mac mini named MEATLESS, is immune!!

  • Oh, Dooce…that Keeper Cup thing, well, that’s just NASTY. Blech.
    And the fact that Jon was saying something was “as painful as rectal itch” just sends me into bursts of giggles. Add to that your hearing “rectalage,” and I’m just thankful I’ve already finished my coffee. ‘Cause that BURNS the nasal cavities.

  • Rectalage… hmm… sounds like something an old queen suffers from. :op

  • Dang cold..

    Crotch of a cab driver??? Have mercy…

  • How do you live in Utah, and have a snow blower you’ve never used?

  • But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.

  • Aw! My little guy is Eli too (Elias), and he’s the blond sharing type as well. Hee. So nice to see little kids getting along, especially when books are involved.

  • Ali

    Aw, Leta’s going to grow up to be a rocket scientist… she’s already reaching for the books. So cute.

  • TOP 100!

    Take that bitches.

    Look at Leta, reading a book with at least 50 words per page. Cute and intellegent, what a combination.

  • bosco67

    You and daughter are even more famous in Houston now.. enjoy your blog.

  • My baby can’t read yet WAAAAAAAH

  • Where the hell is everyone?

    Leta dn Eli are so cute. I can’t wait until the day that we get to hear stories of how they talk to each other and tell stories…

    I want a baby now!

  • annabelle

    Yes, it is weird that Leta was in your dreams, Jess. You need to engage in forced withdrawal from dooce for a while. You are too involved.

  • God, how cute!
    I like the flexibility of the book as both a vehicle of literacy and as life preserver during a stuffed animal attack.

  • Dang cold..

    The first was Canadian!!! Alright Amy!!!!!

    O Canada!
    Our home and native land!
    True patriot love in all thy sons command.

    With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
    The True North strong and free!

    From far and wide,
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    God keep our land glorious and free!
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    No disrespect to our American cousins, of course 🙂

  • Dang cold…

    oh yeah and cute pic 😀

  • That is cute. Damn, it takes a lot to entertain them doesn’t it.

  • Awww, how very sweet.
    I’ve recently taken pics of both of my girls reading to their baby brother…the absolute epitomy of sweetness.

  • Nothing cuter than babies reading books.

  • Andrea in Canada

    I love when kids share. It rarely happens with my girls but when it does, they are sooooo cute!

    I loved the poop story Dooce! I got a good laugh this morning, thank you…up all night with teething 17mth old.

  • I think my 10 month old may be getting her first tooth. She is chewing everyting, nose running like crazy, and she is pissed. I HOPE a tooth emerges at SOME point.

  • I was looking at some of the older pictures of when Leta was a baby…she has gotten so big!

  • that’s so sweet! (is it weird that Leta was in one of my dreams last night??)

  • What is Thing from the Adams family doing popping into the picture?

  • Leta’s got a boyfriend! Older men are always better. Just remember that!!

    Seriously tho, adorable picture!

  • Story time!!!!

    Very sweet.

  • Ali

    Awwwww! That is WAY TOO CUTE. You have caused me to exceed my cuteness allotment for the day.

  • Dazed & Confuzed

    Leta looks like she’s about ready to put the smack down on that %#$@!# lion (bear? camel? wombat?) in the book. Leta’s here to REGULATE, y’all.

  • Lmao grabbing that book for dear life eh Dooce.

  • oh, how sweet! leta looks super clever.

    did someone say pancakes?

  • Cheryl

    Leta says…

    “Eli, don’t be silly, I’ve read this book a million times. I’m an advanced reader, but I do appreciate you sharing with me.”

    Eli’s Reply:

    “Mommy, can I call Leta later? I want her to read me something else.”

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.
