An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

As you can see here clearly she inherited THE FOREHEAD

  • MyChelle

    ummm…part-timer – THAT WAS THE BEATLES.

    I love John Irving as much as the next gal, but come on – When I’m Sixty Four from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…

  • omg that blue sky is amazing!!! what a great back drop and as always leta looks adorable!!

  • beachgall

    Yay! Flying Leta. Love all the pigtail pics.

  • Laura

    Foreheads unite!

    Leta, we welcome you to the tribe!

  • I, for one, love the fu man chu quality of her hairstyle, heather. It looks as if she’s about to assist in forging a Hattori Hanzo sword.

  • minxlj

    Ooh, blue skies…I vaguely remember them (it’s winter here in England, ’nuff said)

    I LOVE her pink fleece, it’s so cute! Goes well with her gorgeous pigtails!

  • Love the pigtails!

    Totally beats those stupid elastic bows that some people put on their baby.

  • RH

    She’s gorgeous. The forehead is gorgeous. The pigtails… I could go on and on. Aww, Leta.

  • Oh. My. Gosh. Honestly. The little pigtails on precious little Leta are making my ovaries do back handsprings. Ahhhh!

  • MyChelle

    Dazed & Confused AND Bucky Four Eyes – Your comments RAWK! whoville and TMBG (boy, TMBG) in the same comments thread, my day is truly made.

    And on the photo…golly, Leta just shames that gorgeous sky with her pink preciousness…

  • That is hands-down my favorite Leta picture! It reminds me of The World According to Garp…

    …when I get older
    losing my hair
    many years from now….

    ….will you still need me
    will you still feed me
    when I’m sixyy-four?

  • I have THE FOREHEAD. And you have resurrected painful, painful memories of some teasing I received in Junior High because of it. I must go cry now.

    Oh yes, and Leta and her three, count ’em, THREE pigtails are abso-freakin’-lutely adorable.

    *LadyBug blubbers helplessly into her hankie and runs away*

  • And her hair totally says the name “Fawnzelle”.

  • Bucky Four Eyes: props on the TMBG quote!

  • hahahaha

    “At first flight”


  • And the hair? 🙂

  • That has Gettyone written all over it.

  • Is it me or is this website slower than a blind man walking through a cactus garden today? Were there technical difficulties? Is this only a test of the emergency doocecast system?

  • Matt in London

    looks like a kung fu hair style to go with her super cool kung fu flying move….

    great picture – love the sky…

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Oh, and I love her forehead. Although I have a decent forehead so of course I would think that is fantastic.

  • haha, awesome. she looks so wise..i cant tell if its because of the hair or the forehead 🙂

  • So many pigtails, so little time. She’s flying away even!

    She is adorable in pink BTW!

  • shy

    what an awesome hair-do! had the same kind when i was just a little tyke. 🙂

  • Sooooo cute. Those pigtails rock the Casbah. When I do that hoist up thing to babies/toddlers, though, they always drool down on me. Not as picture perfect as what you’ve got goin’ on there. 🙂

  • Awwww! The cuteness! It is too much. And the pigtails, sooo Pebbles.


  • Holy Crap she’s cute. Ow ow ow ow ow ow.

    Dooce: step awaaaay from the ponytail holders.

  • She is too perfect. You know that don’t you?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Leta is absolutely ADORABLE!!! She is starting to look like a LITTLE GIRL!!! There is nothing cuter than a baby in pigtails and footy-pajamas!!! SO CUTE!

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE that picture! How adorable!

  • Is that sky a dooce effect? I wish I knew how to do fancy things with Photoshop.

  • Ana

    Just beautiful!

  • annabelle

    Dazed! So funny. It is totally Cindy Lou Who. I also want to know, doesn’t that hurt? I’m getting a headache just looking at all of that tightly bound baby fuzz.

  • Creepy Susie

    i guess there are exceptions to the high forehead = intelligence rule, cause my sis who we call ‘Frente Wa-Wa’ (loosely translated as Front of a Bus) is dumb as a pail of hammers.

  • There’s something not quite real about the background, like it was digitally added later. What a great picture!

  • seriously, put that photo on a greeting card. they would sell like crazy! i know i’d buy one! 🙂

  • If high foreheads are a sign of intelligence, I must be getting smarter every day.

  • “Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads” TMBG

  • So THAT’S where the pink teletubby went.

    Just kidding. Your chawin’ redneck baby is gorgeous. And you are mean for doing that to her hair. It is, however, your right after all the pregnancy and labor and PPD and all.

  • annabelle

    My mother also told me that a high forehead is a sign of intelligence, which sometimes made me feel better about the plane state between my eyebrows and hairline.

  • Dazed & Confuzed

    *AP Wire (Salt Lake City)* – Cindy Lou Who (Who seems to be no more than two at this writing) was seen earlier today levitating over Salt Lake City, miles away from her Whoville home. When questioned by the FAA, Ms. Who cryptically announced “Leoddely odddely ooooh” and promptly spat a piece of carrot into the chimney of a home in Burlington Addition East.

  • Marie

    Love the hair!! So sweet–Leta going for a plane ride in Daddy’s hands!

  • super leta! And how the heck have 21 people posted in about 3 minutes??

  • Beautiful, airborne Frog Princess!! Very cool how her genes are being distributed.

  • mg2


    It’s obviously pigtail week at the Armstrong household and I,for one, have no complaints. She is preciousssss.

  • What an angel 🙂

  • Girls of THE FOREHEAD sisterhood, unite!
    Meeting at my place, 4:30 pm. Gossip at 5:00 sharp, and then forehead stick-’em tattoos at 5:30.

  • Joana

    Ugghhh, you’re too fast for me!

    So I was 5th… Leta is still beautiful!

  • Val

    Beautiful! What a beautiful daughter you have…

  • SuperLeta!

  • No… #7 you guys are fast!!!

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.
