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!

i remember many times in my life when i wouldn't even be awake yet on a saturday morning.

my how things change.

630 this morning, we heard john talking to himself in his bed. the talking bloomed into crying, so daddy went to check on him to let mommy sleep a little more. (best. husband. ever.)

but no such luck - mommy was awake. so she blearily stumbled into john room where she finds this:
the aftermath of hurricane john
john was thrilled to be busily playing with daddy:
 rarely do hurricanes return to the
scene of the crime ... but john is an exception
mommy was less thrilled to be awake:
but ultimately here it is 1030 am and the dishes are done, we're on laundry load number three, daddy's already been to the gym, we have all eaten breakfast, we found john's costume for the mardi gras parade this afternoon, we're working on the meal plan/grocery list for next week and john's down for a nap.

all before we ever would have woken up not so many years ago. not bad for a morning's work - i guess there are some benefits to our little human alarm clock waking up so early!
