My Son Is Not Mushy

My son and I
He looks so endearing.

My son sings to me:

Ooooh Mama!

{grabs my face in his sweet hands}

Mama’s face… I LOOOVVEEE

{my heart melts}


{a giant mouth comes for my nose}

It’s like he subconsciously knows The Walking Dead is back on the air.

When I’m not getting zombie wrestling practice, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My other hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • Babyhuddle: Real Parents Recommend Products For Real Life: On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, Babyhuddle finally came over from the UK and the website is awesome. Real moms and dads can make and share lists of products for different baby and toddler ages, issues and events like the one I did on traveling with infants. Totally worth check out for newer parents, those expecting again or anyone looking for a baby gift.
  • 15 Unbelievable Messes Made by Kids (PHOTOS): On Circle of Moms, a roundup of the worst messes kids have made, and the day my kids spilled allspice everywhere made the list.

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

  • 27 Reasons Why Kids Are Actually The Worst: From Buzzfeed, this is actually a well-done collection of gifs and picture especially about halfway through, but the comments are so ridiculous because people began fighting over whether we should reproduce or not. I guess having a sense of humor is not a requirement for humanity. (funny)
  • That time I told the doctor she was wrong: From Genie in a Blog, a humbly funny piece on making mistakes, which I appreciated not because I have an MD but because when most bloggers title a post like that, it’s a self-righteous, eye-rolling, rant. (refreshing)
  • Emily’s Bandaid DriveEmily’s Journey (Emily is a local and lovely girl with neuroblastoma) is running a band-aid drive for VCU Medical Center and Helen DeVos Childrens Hospital. Both hospitals’ clinics’ band aids are done off of donations, and they go through lots of them supporting families. Send a box of band aids and make a difference: Hubbel Family, PO Box 5383, Midlothian, VA 23112. More details here.

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, 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.
