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!

slip n slide

john did initially ask me to turn the "rain off."
but once he got used to it, we couldn't keep him
out of the slip-n-slide.
my husband and i have found a really awesome sunday school class at our church that is basically ... us. couples roughly our age with kids running around and hectic lives. apart from the obvious similarities, though, we've been really amazed to find tons in common with this great group. it's very cool to be surrounded by like-minded folk.

and saturday, surrounded we were. we gathered at one couple's home (thanks, y'all!) and had a barbecue, complete with splash pools and a slip-n-slide for the kiddos. i didn't count kids, but let's just say there were a lot of them. amazingly, they really all shared very well, and took turns, and looked out for the little guys. so us parents got to kick back a little bit and enjoy each others' company while the wee ones ran themselves into some mighty fine naps (at least john did, anyway).

the rest of the weekend was jam-packed, too - shopping for new suitcases (john was a trooper through five different stores), baking cookies, doing laundry, cleaning house. it was all good, but by sunday evening, this is about the extent of the energy level in our house:

my child really does wear pants sometimes, i promise.
