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!

mad skills

look ma, no hands! (oh wait, i've got two.)
this morning john didn't want to get up again. i don't blame him - i rarely want to get up, even for really fun things.

so i snuggled him, put him on my lap and hugged him tight, and he cuddled up on my chest. after a few minutes, he sat up, rubbed his eyes and looked at me. from the expression on his face, it was clear he was *very* cross with mama.

"woke me up," he said, accusingly. (and clear as can be, too.)

"yes, baby, i did," i answered.

then he jumped down and tried to climb his changing table. i boosted him up, he grabbed the shirt i layed out for him and he started to try to put it on.

just a little extra help from mama - he'll be dressing himself in no time. kid's got mad skills.

ps. my favorite morning game is when he puts his hand through his sleeve. while his hand is hidden from view, he says dramatically, "oh no!" i then uncover his hand and we say, relievedly, "oh, there it is!" probably every mother since the invention of clothing has played this game. but that doesn't make it any less fun.
