Pregnant in the VA Beach Aquarium Shark mouth

Time Flies When You Are Eaten By A Shark

In the summer of 2006, Scott and I went to the Virginia Beach aquarium on a rainy day. I was 7 months pregnant and already in love with the boy growing inside me.

I look so young and bedraggled.

This past month my son and I went the same aquarium.

I could just eat him up! But someone already did.

He’s 7 years old and more than I could have ever hoped for in a child — sweet, smart, funny. He’s thoughtful and kind, stubborn and honest to a fault.

Who knew I would be so lucky to have someone take the best parts of Scott and I to make this wonderful boy?

When I’m not reminiscing, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

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.
