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!

baby isaac newton

pic of the day: day 7
mmmmmmmmmm peas
forget baby einstein. paging baby newton: john discovered gravity today.

while i ate breakfast and warmed his peas up for him to eat*, i gave john a paper towel roll to play with. he discovered that if he threw it from his high chair onto the ground, it rolled quite nicely. i picked it up. he threw it again, watching fascinated as it fell to the ground and rolled away.

and yes, he grinned every time mommy had to pick it up. i knew this game was coming soon! it's still cute right now. ask me tomorrow and i'll probably be cursing it.

i would like to blame the discovery of gravity for my inability to get out of the house on time, but the truth is that i am just constitutionally unable to be punctual this week. (this month? this year? this lifetime?) the nice thing about daycare is it doesn't matter much when he gets there. unfortunately, it DOES matter when i get to work! (thank you work for being flexible and understanding.)

oh, well. we'll try for on-time again tomorrow.

* every time i feed john peas for breakfast, a part of me thinks, "peas for breakfast? gross!" but then i realize john has no idea what foods are appropriate for what times of day. besides, he likes peas. so much so that he headbanged in joy as he ate them this morning - resulting in the spoon-to-eye collision responsible for the awesome face paint in the picture above.
