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!

oh man

"oh, man. this fruit cup won't stay on
the arm of the chair!"

on the drive to school today, john suddenly exclaimed, "oh, man!"

and he said it in exactly the right tone of voice.

"what's wrong, love," i asked. "why, oh man?"

"oh, man!" he reiterated. "oh, man - the MOWER!"

i wracked my brains. the mower? what about the mower? 

and then i remembered - on the way to the car, we were discussing how john has a little lawn mower and daddy has a big lawn mower. so i said, "oh, man, you want daddy's big mower?"

and he said, "oh, man! the BIG mower."

and pointed out the window at a tractor driving by.

oh, man!
