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!

perpetual motion

the truck
john's toy of choice this morning was his dump truck. he rode it in circles around the house. he pushed it back and forth between the kitchen and the living room. he ran over the dog with it. he made periodic pauses to say hi to nana (NEEna!) who's visiting this week, or to mama. but then he kept right on trucking along.

i did capture him for just the briefest of moments, to snap this little pic:
mama's little imp
and then he was off again - playing ring around the rosy in the living room, running to the door saying "bye bye, mommy" and grabbing his red bucket like a purse.

i know all grownups say this about all kids, but it's true: if we could bottle just a fraction of that verve, that energy, and that gogogo, we could power the whole world in perpetuity. it makes me tired to see ... but it sure is fun to watch!
