in june 2010, our lives got turned upside down in the best possible way: the birth of our awesome kiddo, john. in october 2013, brother charlie charged into our life to change the status quo again. and june 2016 brought us brother ben to round out our trio.

i'm proud to have "mom" at the top of the list of titles on my resume, but i'm also still a hard-working professional. how does a working mom juggle work and family? ride along with me and see if i can figure it out!

that's what pto is for, right?

so i'm on vacation!

ok not really. but i'm using paid time off (pto) to stay home with a sick baby boy, so i'm trying to make it sound more awesome.

poor kiddo has been sick since thursday, tho he got much worse overnight last night. good news is, doc says he just has a virus and we can keep an eye on him and he'll be ok. bad news is, he's fussier than i've ever seen him, and so congested that he can hardly sleep or eat. poor wee man!

on sunday, we left john with his auntie to have an adults-only afternoon at the couples wedding shower for some friends of ours. it was actually pretty great to to interact with other adults without a child on my hip - don't get me wrong, i love having him along at these types of events and he does great, but i'd sort of forgotten how nice it is to just have a glass of wine and chat with everyone else.

of course, i then let john stay up way past his bedtime that night, so i could spend some time with him. i missed the kid!

speaking of, he wants to go ask the nice man on the beach to give mama another mai tai, so i'll sign off here.

(just kidding. he wants milk of course. but it's not vacation without a man on a beach giving me mai tais, right?)
