My Daughter Declares Herself Kid Of The Year

As Time Magazine was debating Person of the Year, my N was debating Kid of the Year.

She poured over all the ridiculously adorable photographs of herself and finally declared a winner.

Kid of the Year

With lines like:

My daughter’s only question while trying on her new ski pants: “Now can I fit a skirt under this?”

Who would argue?

I’m pretty sure I could start a Sh*t My Daughter Does blog and become way more famous than I’ll ever be with Late Enough.

When I’m not determined to become famous (mostly) on my own merit, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

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

  • Celebrating New Year’s Eve With Young Kids: On Richmondmom, I’m not interested in staying up until midnight even if I was willing to pay a babysitter double on New Year’s Eve so this is what my family has done since 2010. If you’re not sure what to do with little kids on New Year’s Eve or not interested in staying up until midnight, take a peek. Or if you’d like to see an adorable pictures of my kids and I dressed up.

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

  • What This Jew Thinks About Celebrating Christmas: From These Little Waves, what it means to blend belief and tradition and to see the world in its many shades of gray. (lovely)
  • End Workplace Discrimination: From Equality Virginia and Progress VA, you can be fired or not hired if you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Virginia. Senate Bill 701 seeks to change that in the January Virginia legislative session. You can show support by signing this petition. (important and honestly, horrifying that this exists)
  • Honest Trailers – The Dark Knight: From screenjunkies on youtube, how did I just discover Honest Trailers? I’m pretty sure this is where I’ll be for the rest of the afternoon. (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.
