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!

balloon bath

          1. turn water on.        2. check water level.           3. clean baloon.
yesterday as i was blowdrying my hair, john was playing in the bathroom. this is pretty standard stuff, so i don't watch him too closely - he knows what not to touch, and with occasional guidance he's usually in pretty good shape.

so over the noise of the blowdryer, i heard this: "oh no ... uh oh, balloon."

i turned off the blowdryer and turned around, to discover several things all at once:

  1. john found his almost-dead balloon from our trip to the mall last week
  2. john knows how to turn on the water in my bathtub
  3. john's balloon apparently needed a bath.
now i'm not overly concerned about any of these facts. actually, it made for a fun little morning photoshoot. and i got the balloon out and dried it off and all was well in john's world.

what i *do* worry about are the ramifications: what else will john find in the house that needs a bath?????

stay tuned ...

as an aside, i am making a commitment to do some type of physical activity every day in the month of may, and i would like to invite you to join me.

it doesn't have to be a visit to the gym - it can be a walk or run in the neighborhood, jumping on a trampoline, yoga in your living room, whatever floats your boat.

want to play along? comment on this entry (not on facebook please - want to try to keep them all in one place) so we can keep each other accountable!

here's what i did yesterday: a two-mile walk at a fast pace in the neighborhood, with john and buddy in tow.

let's get active together, shall we?
