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!

little monkey likes bananas

john is actually making the monkey noise
for me while we eat a banana. cliche? maybe.
but freaking adorable.
the greatest thing is happening: john is learning his animal noises. they may require a tiny bit of translating but they're adorable. here is the translation key:

- doggies say"fuff! fuff!" (ruff, ruff)
- cows say "mooooooooo" (that one's pretty straightforward)
- ducks say "rack rack!" (quack, quack)
- monkeys say "ah ah ah ah ah" (just say it out loud - he's spot on)
- but my personal favorite: tigers say "wahhhr" (roar) with a vicious little face

this morning john did not want to get up (i don't blame him) and the only thing that made it ok was his stuffed tiger going "wahhhr" and jumping around the room. followed by fits of giggles. and then another banana.
