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!

busy day nap fail


pic of the day: day 24
nap fail

i think the only way today's pic of the day could be funnier would be if it could have been shot with an infrared camera while i was not in john's room with him. he took a GREAT nap for daddy earlier in the day while mom was at work (more on that in a sec) but when i tried to put him down for his second nap, he faked me out. he fell asleep in my arms, plopped right into bed with bear and was quiet for about 20 minutes. then i heard noises and peeked in the room to see him ... and this is what i found. a little crawling creature talking to himself as he explored the crib, pulled every blanket down, and played happily. oh well, naps are over-rated anyway, right? no. but that's ok.

the reason i had to work today on a saturday was two-fold - we hosted a set of three financial education seminars for kids between the ages of 5 and 15 this morning. it was a bit like herding cats - what youth-related event isn't - but i think some great information was shared and hopefully some futures brightened at least a teensy tiny bit.

but the fun part of the day was over at celtic studios where our new friends at launch media helped us film our new tv commercials. and let me tell you - if you want a tv commercial done in the greater baton rouge area, call them. they are visionaries. i am not exaggerating. we had a pretty great idea for our tv commercials but they are bringing it to life in a way far cooler than i ever imagined. 

which is really fun in and of itself. but perhaps even more exciting to me is that i am realizing a dream of mine, that i've always had: to create really amazing tv commercials that do a great job of representing a company and its brand. this is only one project, and who knows if/when we will do another round of ads. but it is so awesome to be a part of the team putting this together, and i am totally in love with my job right now.

then i came home and got to be totally in love with my family. not such a bad day in the life.
