An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation
  • good morning. i love your daily shots.

  • Hricachick

    Top 30?

    Cool shot!

  • Nice picture. I wish I was in a sake haze.

  • jes

    i am on my way to i need to look up phallic. 🙂

  • i like everything about this shot

  • jes

    lol – i SO totally get it now. it’s early, i’m a bit slow. nice shot, dooce.

  • Smark!

    I’m more of a people person. Pics of things are interesting, but photos are for more animated things…

  • looks like sunrise – surprised i remember what one of those looks like. suppose that will end when i have a Leta of my own!

  • HOly cow! #1?

  • Roz

    love the glint of the sunlight in this one, great shot.

  • Well now! No one else is here??

    Nice shot!

  • melly~

    where IS everyone?!

  • Jessamyn

    Mmmm, sake at twilight. Beautiful light.

  • Beautiful shot.

  • cyn

    Can I be first?

  • #5???

    i have never been in the top 20!

    the photo is nice, i’ve been checking randomly all weekend!

  • Neato mosquito!

  • top 10. woohoo!

  • Muffy

    Is that a little phallic, or am i just horny?

  • I would assume that the next peep holiday is Halloween. They have Peep pumpkins and ghosts. ah… peeps. I WANT PEEPS.

  • I hear ya’, Muff. I just thought that story was hysterical. Can you imagine someone eating a 15 pound burger? I also was never fat – 5’11” and 120 lbs. despite living in the pierogie and pastie (I mean the meat and cheese thing, not the nipple garment) capitol of the U.S. I think it is funny, though, that the one person that ate that monstrosity of a burger was 100 pounds. And a girl. I ate fifty hot wings in college once. I was really drunk.

  • The Muff

    Katie. I’m down to 1 box of peeps. In my desk drawer. They’re purple. When is the next peep holiday? I gotta go on the Just Born site. For answers I need to have. Must. Find. More. Peeps.

  • The Muff

    Katie: Just because I live in NEPA doesnt mean I drink the water. I’m 5’2 and a buck twenty, dripping wet.
    I have a foot long occasionally. I don’t live at the place. Come on. Now, if there’s anythign that’s gonna get my ass hanging out of my gown, it’s these damn Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies 2 fer 5 bucks at the dollar store.

    Yup. He’s waking up with brownie on his butt.

  • Mary

    oh comments are still open

    Heather I was very touch by your monthly newsletter. Leta is more and more beautiful every day and the agony she puts you through brings you closer together.

    Someday she will read that and yes she will be embarrassed but she will see that no matter what hell she was your love was never ending.
    And that will make her go “Aww you sweet grouchy old lady.”

  • Good morning all. Thought seriously about coming down with a serious illness this morning but I gave in and came to work. Damn it.

  • I am at work again. 9:15 a.m. Today life sucks and so does this shit job.

  • The Muff

    Someone pissed in Vaida’s orange juice today. Good morning, dear.

    I’m just lurkin’, waiting for the new photo.
    And Comment 412. Wonderfully put. That’s the way it should be.

  • It is SO exciting to see the pictures of Leta – especially the last one where she is standing on her own two little legs. She is THIS close to walking, and boy will Heather be regretful that she ever prayed long and hard for Leta to walk. I remember when little Patrick started walking – he was nine months old. Early walking just may be a bigger curse than late walking. And he never walked – he ran. God Bless Heather and Jon.

  • Marly

    You are amazing and honest and real.
    thank you

  • Oh, the monthly newsletters to Leta always make me happy. I’m so going to enjoy torturing my offspring with tales of their youth.

  • Muffy, when are you going to start your blog? I cannot wait any longer. I am sure it is going to be absolutely hilarious.

  • naralius

    Im waiting for muffy’s blog too, I check everyday and get really disapointed you make me laugh

  • You get disappointed that Muffy makes you laugh? Or you get disappointed that she doesn’t have a blog? 😉

  • This article just proves that people in PA (my home state) are weird. And fat.

  • The Muff

    My boss is on one of his “errands”, whatever that means.
    Which means for me, time to double-dip and do this document I promised the attorney i work part time for, that I’d have it done by tonight. It’s not done.

    Oh, and no, not all the thank you’s are out. But this whole runaway bride thing really puts me in a good light. I was just a little nauseous at my bridal shower. It’s not like I didn’t show up or anything. Thanks Jennifer Wilbanks. Your irreverent and reckless behavior saved my relationship with my Mom!
    Oh, and Katie, yea, the blog. After the wedding. I promise. We’re trying to do the online business thing anyway. We got a dummy book on it and everything.
    After the wedding. Two weeks tomorrow kiddos.

  • The Muff

    Good Morning!
    Newsletter 15 has me in tears, as usual.
    My boss must think I’m a freak.
    Of course, you guys KNOW i’m a freak.

  • coskel, there is still half a glass of Shiraz left from last night.


    Morning Ms. Bucky(smooch)

  • Warm and sunny here, wtf .. so bring on the circus … you’ll be able to find me .. I’ll be under your desk …

  • “Shiraz”…?

    Is that what the kids are callin’ it now?

    Oooh, you got “Shiraz” in my hair!
    Wow, that’s a lotta “Shiraz” Greenie.
    Monica shoulda washed that “Shiraz” off her blue dress.

  • Heather, that was such a sweet letter!

  • greenie, how ’bout pouring that shiraz in my green tea here?

  • Happy 15 mo. Leta. I think I see a pointy chin emerging… Heather if you have any cassette tape boxes,a big stack is guaranteed to entertain for at least 5 minutes!

  • Bucky, I don’t know if I can start my day talking about the worm I’m not currently getting! Tequila or…well, um, yeah, that kind.
    LOL, I’m always happy to see you – what I was NOT happy to see was this crappy gray sky and cold temps, so I’m going to broadcast warm, funny happy circus comedy opera today for all my poor Michigan listeners.

  • Love the atmosphere in Dooce’s pics!
    We’re still planning the Present for Dooce project over at or you can email me at

  • Henryk_


  • i hate you all

    Henryk is such a stellar parental example. We should all be more like him. And our kids should be more like his kids.

  • Nikki – that’s brilliant. Does it work on cats?

    Dooce – lovely newsletter once again. She is so lucky to have a mom who keeps up the ‘baby book’.

  • I missed all the wine-drinking last night? damn.

  • Coskel, it’s too early for wine.

    …now, if we’re talkin’ _tequila_ then pull up a breakfast bowl.

    Is that the worm, or are you just happy to see me?

  • Mr. Ee

    Un viaje la foto, che.

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.
