Hippie Girl

Is hippie nature or nurture?

Well, my kids know how to wash out and put plastic containers into our recycling “area”. I can’t really call it a bin because it mostly looks like this:

Perhaps we need to practice a little more reduce.

I also attempted to teach my son about why recycling is important by launching into a climate change lecture, and since we didn’t have a white Christmas or any snow in Richmond so far, my son is now terrified that it will snow in on his birthday. Which is in August.

I explained it well. Too well.

But for all my indoctrination of how to be good stewards of our environment, I’m pretty sure there’s a green gene.

Or at least a dirty hippie gene.

Why yes, she did do her own hair after dressing herself.

Throw in a few daisies and drumming circle and watch our world. We’re coming to save you.

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 LateEnough.com, 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.
