Are We Still Alive Today? Plus More Than Enough Links For You


I hope the answer is yes, Huckle, but even if were dead, I betcha we lasted the longer than most in the tree house.

When I’m not wondering if I’m dead, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • Three Tips To Teach Children Generosity: On Richmondmom, it’s hard this time of year to figure out how to teach our children, especially young ones, how to be generous so h are some tips to make little saints in no time (or at least to have some realistic expectations).
  • How To Work At Home While The Kids Are Home: A Few Tips For Winter Break: On This Blogger Makes Fun Of Stuff, I uses TV and road trips to balance working at home and family when my kids are off for holiday break. (keepin’ it real people). I also reviewed Hulu Plus for Kids (bleh) and the Kia Sorento (yeah).
  • My Children Are Not Good For Santa Claus: On Progressive Christianity, I explain why we don’t threaten our children with SANTA WON’T BRING YOU GIFTS. We believe that doing good should be about our hearts and our spirituality not what we get — whether it be presents or heaven. (A version of this piece originally appeared on Late Enough over a year ago)

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

  • A Little Girl in Danger: This Is America’s Health Care Crisis: From No Points For Style, this is what our mental health care system looks like and IT SUCKS. Also, if you have contacts for this family PLEASE speak up. (important)
  • Don’t Blame Autism for Newtown: From New York Times OpEd, “psychopathic, sociopathic or homicidal tendency must be separated out from autism and mental illness more generally” or what really needs to be said about autism and mental illness in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. (thoughtful)
  • Failbook: Whenever I’m feeling down, I visit failbook for all those Facebook faux pas by friends who are too funny to unfriend. (hilarious)

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.
