An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

    Great post – poor Chuckles. I think we all did the “feed everything to the dog” trick when we were younger. Now that I’m considerably older, a dog would have to pry a goldfish cracker out of my cold, dead fingers before I’d give it up.

    I just have to say that what Jon did for you that fateful day in the bathtub is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard in my life.

  • Melissa

    Hi Heather,
    It is great fun checking in on your site almost daily! You bring some good chuckles and insight to many of my days.

  • Amyloo

    great pic!

  • Top 20?

    Even a long-time lurker would be brought from the woodwork by that tempting possibility….

  • Laziza

    Was this the big night out? You look beautiful! Hope you two had a wonderful time.

  • Jo

    todays post is so hilarious. The image of Chuck hobbling around not knowing whether to be sick or poop makes me laugh out loud. What is incredibly impressive, however, is his ability to wake up the owners and get outside BEFORE he puked. That’s one clever dog.

  • J.A.C.K.

    Sexy hair!

  • Smark!

    Yeah!!! Comments have returned. I missed you guys…. So, what’s the deal? Nice hair! New style?

  • Janie

    The hair looks fabulous!

  • So I’m going thru this pampered chef catalog, and they’ve got the orange peelers, just like tupperware’s, for 75 cents!



  • OoO! You look cute! 🙂

  • Pretty, pretty. Flower, Dooce, Rough outline of Jon. Can’t beat it with a stick. Corn dog or otherwise. Yay for comments returning! Here are the ones I’ve stored up: Chuck representin’ on Friday was AWEsome, Leta gets cuter and cuter the more mobile & grown up she gets, and I LOVE SUSHI.

  • if yer purty and ya know it clap yer hands! if yer purty and ya know it clap yer hands!!! _*clapclap*_

  • I didn’t think comments were ever going to return! Nice pic.

  • LOVE the hair. Is the furniture all in tact?

  • BJT

    I’ve only commented a couple of times, but I feel obliged to jump on the bandwagon and say that your hair looks amazing.

    And that was a great photo of Chuck the other day.

  • jastereo

    Great hair… hope you both had a good time!

  • oh, and that pic of chuck from friday with all the red goin’ on…totally awesome. the clarity of chuck and the redness – i was in awe.

  • Do my four eyes deceive me? Comments? O happy day!
    If only I’d known, I’d have worn my special hot-pink vinyl assless chaps for the occasion.

    Thanks for lettin’ us behind the looking glass again, Heather!

  • minxlj

    Lovely photo, you look very elegant 🙂

  • Michelle Brady

    beautiful photo! you look positively gorgeous!

  • So, Bucky, honey, which chaps ARE you sportin’ today?

  • Dooce having a particularly good hair day.

    Chuck was looking particularly majestic last Friday. ‘Course, that rep is gone with today’s story. I’ve been there myself, standing outside at 3am in pajama tops only (I never wear the bottom) bare-assed to the world, stage whispering, “GET YOUR ASS BACK IN THIS HOUSE NOW!!”

  • Susie, it’s just my plain ol’ black-fringed leather chaps, you know, the every day office chaps.

    And bowling shoes.


    I like the hair.

  • Mary

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.
