My Daughter Has Flare

Me: Hey sweetie, we are going bowling so get dressed.

N: Okay, mama.

Her cats came, too.
Bowling together
We were asked to join a bowling league.

Me: Hey sweetie, we are going skiing so get dressed.

N: Okay, mama.

My daughter's skiing outfit
She was the only one on the mountain in a tutu.

Me: Hey sweetie, where are you?

N: Just hanging out in my room, mama.

Just hanging out
Who doesn’t hang out in a velvet cape?

She’s only three so I should just give up and join in with a little flare of my own, right?

This is my new avatar, too.

It’s good to have a daughter who inspires me to wear faux fur to go bowling and to let down my hair and take a picture even without makeup.

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.

  1. I seriously want her to meet Jacob, who dresses like SANTA, SCROOGE, THE GRINCH and HARRY POTTER daily. They would be FAST friends.

    I love her flare, love her ability to just DO, GO, FEEL!
    don’t you wish that we could all just embrace that part of ourselves?

    she is so beautiful my friend.

  2. Our daughters would get along so well …as long as we met in a county with far over the average amount of tulle.

    (Also, the blue streaks with the blue coat rock.)

  3. You’re both gorgeous! I love her style, and yes, we should all find our flair.

    Long time, no talk (or type, as the case may be). Just wanted you to know I’m still out here reading, even though I stink at commenting. Happy New Year to you and yours!
