Stopping to smell the flowers is not all it’s cracked up to be:

Alex Iwashyna

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.

  1. YES! We had the same issue, though it was my lame parenting that did it. I was on a run with Lucy and Sampson and for entertainment purposes I gave Lulu a camellia flower that had fallen on the ground. What’s better than pulling petals off? And I knew she’s also love to feel how soft they were. When we were finished she was covered in yellow pollen being enthralled with the yellow stamen part as well. And the girl has MY allergy problem. Brilliant Mommy!
