An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Marlo crawls for the first time

    OMG, Marlo! It’s too early to crawl just yet!


    Little Miss Kickboxer (aka she who will not be walking until she’s 21 and can buy a Heineken at the liquor store).

    And Heather, just incase that bloggie thing isn’t working out for you some time in the future, I do see a career as dog whistle tuner in your stars …

    I understand Leta’s concern. My iPhone sleeps with me. It’s nice to see a determined and adorable baby crawl, mine just sat around until they were ready to walk. I felt like I missed a whole stage!

    But wait! What happened in DC? Did the First Lady say she was a fan or what? (Yes, I watched the opening and closing statements, I’m a sucker for that sort of thing) Did I miss a post here somewhere?

    Fantastic! Who says the second kid’s milestones are not as momentous? She’s a doll.

    woohoo! GO MARLO GO!

    It is so amazing, every baby in the world learns to crawl and every time one of them does it’s the most awesome sight I’ve ever seen.

    Go, Marlo, go. I know you can give them a run for their money : )

    Yay, baby girl!!!

    (Our delay was the damn wood floor. Ten kinds of carpet later, we can’t keep up baby-proof fast enough.)

    Go, Marlo, go!

    Awww, isn’t she just the sweetest! Congrats!

    The total cheerleading coming from you and Jon is adorable! What a fucking awesome thing to catch on video. I’m so glad we all got to see it!

    Glasses on Leta!!!

    Pictures please!

    Kids with glasses are so scrumptious! I just want to eat them up.

    I have a boxer, a bloodhound and a mastiff, and the wild baying mayhem that ensued after hearing your enthusiasm was epic. Thanks. Too cute by the way.

    When I was about 5, I remember we lured my sister to crawl for the first time using an empty cardboard toothpaste box with an alligator on it.

    I too am curious about Leta’s glasses. I should have gotten glasses a lot sooner then I did. I went through the first five years of school seeing things in a blur (literally) so I’m curious to know how you knew that she needed glasses.

    Marlo crawling is very cute. Also very dangerous 🙂

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.
