An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

He loves her, he really does

  • My dog loves our baby, but then again she wipes peanut butter on the dogs fur and is always giving her food.

  • Vaida, no posts were allowed yesterday.

  • Jo said at 06:55AM, 04.08.2005:
    Leta: ‘I want that necklace, doggy!’

    That tickled my funny bone, Jo. I could just hear the little smunchkin saying that.

  • Lauri

    Leta: MINE!

    Chuck: Now you listen to me, kid! We’re gonna get some things straight around here…

  • Vaida

    Well, what do I know? I’m just a newbie. Thanks for the info.

  • Dooce:

    As Gerald Stern would say, “Lucky life. Oh lucky life. Oh lucky lucky life. Lucky life.”

  • um, I just realized that you _could_ take my comment about Leta’s legs wrong. I just mean that her legs look looooooooooooong and remind me of your own looooooooong legs in the older pic of you kicking your red-shoe clad foot up in the air in your happy dance of rebellion against Beth’s neighbors.

    (yeah, so I was Not an English major; and I know my sentence structure bites. But I like it the way it is. thankyouverymuch)


  • As noted when watching my 2-year-old niece and her Jack Russell terrier, Marty, there is nothing better for a little girl than her own personal dog who won’t tell her “no,” won’t bite her, won’t growl, and doesn’t mind being dressed up in a skirt and tiara and led down the sidewalk on a leash. Leta’s a lucky girl.

  • LeafGirl77

    OK. Forgive me. I have no idea what this “funny mormon underwear is”.

    Someone, please educate me.

  • Henryk_

    Hi Leaf, they had a big session about it abour a week ago, complete with web addresses for pics etc.

  • Muffy

    Danielle, Funky sentence structure is fine. I think it’s the double negatives and improper verb conjugations that annoy most of us grammar-geeks. Example: I seen that post. AARGH!

  • This picture is so beautiful! Chuck definitely wants whatever is in Leta’s mouth. He is looking at her so intently!

    Heather, your post today is awesome. It is so nice to hear that you are happy exactly where you are. And with a baby as cute as that, it isn’t hard to believe!

    I’m glad to see you referenced the magical Mormon underwear, Heather!

  • Vaida

    Speaking of funny underwear…I have a pair that are bright orange and on the front is a picture of the man that works the Mini-Mart on The Simpsons. Appu? Well, there is a little coversation bubble above his head saying, “Thank you! Come again!” AH HA HA I LOVE that underwear!!!

  • Henryk_

    Yeah Muffy, you would think that people would be able to use gooder grammer than they do!

  • The weird underwear Heather is referencing has to do with something the Rock Star Mommy brought up the other day. She said she had heard that Mormons wear magical underwear that is supposed to ensure they get into heaven as long as they wear it faithfully. And it is TRUE! It sounds a little Masonic to me, but apparently this is normal Mormon behavior. I just really want to see a picture of what these things look like.

  • Chuck looks like he is thinking “oh shit what is she going to do to me now”

  • Henryk_

    me too Katie b b a w!

  • alice

    pics of mormon underwear

  • Here is a link I found explaining the garments. I haven’t found a picture of them yet, though.

  • Henryk_

    Kieran, Leta better be careful. I wonder what happens when she pull the chain? ‘Chuckie did it mummy, not me!”!

  • Lovely, lovely, picture, Heather.

    And your post yesterday? Just…WOW. That was beautiful. So deeply personal and moving.
    I am so happy for your happiness.

    God bless you, Heather. God bless you and your wonderful, sweet family.

  • Henryk_

    way to go Alice!

  • Beggin’ Strips came out with a short-lived product that ultimately fell to the fact that people inexplicably got hungry for breakfast every time they were around babies. It is this failed scented lotion that brings us my caption for the photo…

    Chuck: “Iiiiiit’s BACON!”

    (I’d like to also point out that I am completely incapable of denying the overwhelming cuteness of the photo. If I came with the necessary equipment, my ovaries would be powerless against the cuteness…)

  • Jo

    I think Leta is attracted to shiny things attached to slobbery things.

  • alice

    thanks HenryK, happy to be of service

  • *Chris from Ohio* : You made me giggle. Bacon-scented lotion, indeed.

    And *Jo* of the “I want that necklace, doggy” comment: I’m with Susie. I could totally hear a little Leta-voice, demanding that Chuck “Hand it over!”

  • red

    awe, this is so stinkin’ sweet!

  • shawnadammit

    That is so sweet. Chuck and Leta combined (and singular, even) are just too much cuteness for me to handle. Leta is adorable, and Chuck’s sweetness and devotion to her is undeniable. Great picture, what a way to start off my workday. Thanks!

  • Henryk_

    Oh, I dont know, but that Mormon underwear aint all that bad…..if you live in the Yukon! Makes for interesting nights in the budoir!

  • I think it is creepy that they have to keep their magic undies on when the have sex. Ugh.

  • Henryk_

    Oh Katie b b a w , you have managed to conjoure up a horrible image….eeewwwwwwww!

  • Is Leta’s hair curled?? I love it. Beautiful pic with the sun and everything. Gorgeous!

  • Muffy

    JUST ONCE, I’d like to do it doggie style, while wearing Dr. Dentons…you know, with the little butt flap in the back.

    With some Christy Lane playing on the stereo.

  • Cute!

  • Muffy — One day at a tiiiiime, sweet jesus…

    Just make sure you have that metal snap well out of the way when you drop the trap door on your Dr Dentons.
    Uh, not that I would know a *thing* about doggy-style in Dr Dentons of course.

  • Catalina’s post made me cry. I’m such a sucker for romance.

  • Katietoyboy

    Went greyhound racing last night. One of the hounds was named ‘doggies tile’ hahaha

  • Henryk_

    Doggie style….nahhhh…….it’s not as good as people make it out to be, but in that particular style of undergarment….hmmmmmm??!!

  • Muffy

    Katietoyboy, That’s nice. Did you stop for a nice meal of Milk Fed Veal afterwards?
    Doggies Tile. I get it now.

  • naralius

    sweetest pic. ever!!! i love that pair

  • Oh no…KBBAW…they don’t really leave them on during SEX too do they? That’s just too much.

  • Jo

    HenryK, why is doggie style not what its made out to be? I beg to differ!

  • What a great way to start my day! I love that picture!

  • The image of doing it doggy style in Dr. Denton’s cracked me up, Muffy. I wonder if they sell those in adult sizes?

  • Jo

    Ok so we’ve gone from BJ’s to Doggie Style in the space of 2 days…yep, thats Doocekateers for you.

  • Katietoyboy

    I wanted to bet on the bunny but the nice lady wouldn’t take my bet. Hey where is Jessica Rabbit, she is one uber cool girlie.

  • Susannah, yeah it looks like they have to leave them on at all times, except for bathing. The women have slits cut down there for easy access. And you have to wear your bra OVER the underwear.

  • Katie-bbaw…where on earth did you hear that?

  • Henryk_

    *Jo*, might be ok for you, but not for me. There are better ways.

  • A moment of sweetness. It amazes me how some animals can comprehend the fragility of youth. My daughter constantly pulls the cat’s tail and grabs her side, but the cat still hasn’t bitten her. She bites me all the time for petting her the wrong way. (The cat, that is.)

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.
