How Not To Parent On Any Given Afternoon. Or Ever.

Monday is FINALLY here! But I’m NOT.

Because once a month, I’ll be writing for!

(This is my big announcement from last week by the way.)

This month I’m writing about how I managed to cover my children in lollipop, poop and paint all in one day.  This kinda talent doesn’t grow on trees you know.

Go! Read! Laugh at me!

Feel free to share your parenting non-tips. Or just keep your children away from me. I’m not offended (and maybe even appreciative).

How Not To Parent On Any Given Afternoon. Or Ever.

PS. It is a local website, but my post isn’t locally focused. Unless we are only plying our children with candy here in Richmond, Virginia.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Congratulations! I’ve been secretly waiting for this!!! Glad they have found you and are using you and your wit and amazing knowledge as well…we all know you secretly plant a moral teaching inside your blog posts, “And knowing is half the battle…GO JOE!”

  2. For some reason I thought you might be embellishing a tad on some “don’ts” that you did. NOPE! You have the hilarity captured on film. Hahahahahah! That lollipop is bigger than N. And yes, E is freaking me out in that tub of “paint”. I snorted when I saw it. DON’T think you can drink coffee while reading Alex’s blog. Liquids and laughing don’t mix, and either do liquids and keyboards.
