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!

not so bad

john the sartorial genius
so from where we sit, the impact of hurricane isaac was pretty minimal. i know there are other areas that were much more negatively impacted, and our thoughts and prayers are with them. but here at our house, we were without power for less than 24 hours and we're getting close to back to normal.

it was definitely an adventure keeping a two-year-old occupied when elmo, yo gabba gabba, thomas, and bob the builder were not an option. john did seem to understand that the tv was "broken," but he didn't like it at all. we had a lot of fun playing yahtzee and coloring, and we read about a billion books by lantern light. overall, it was actually pretty fun.

daddy had to go back to work today, so john and i ventured across town to visit our family and see how everyone else was holding up. a lot of baton rouge is still without power, but they have a generator over there so they're holding up just fine. and we were in for a lovely surprise when we got home - our power was back! the a/c is now cranking, we're watching curious george and - i love this - still reading lots of books - while we wait for daddy to get off work and come home.

tomorrow i go back to work, too, and john's school is open (thank you, a lil ones!) so it will be an almost normal day.

although, i might let john pick out his own outfit again. especially in the dark this morning, the results were quite entertaining (see photo above).
