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!

shiny shoes

hell of a match.
last night while running around the house in just a diaper (as usual), john suddenly got a wile hair. "shirt! i need shirt!" he said enthusiastically.

"TIGER shirt!" he added.

since he doesn't have a tiger shirt, quick-thinking daddy drummed up the next best thing - a lion pajama shirt, with matching pants for the bottom. shew, disaster averted.

a few minutes later, another cry. "shoes! i need shoes!"

so daddy took john back to the closet and let him pick out his own shoes. he chose the shiny faux-patent tuxedo shoes from the cruise. they set off the jungle pjs nicely, i think.

back to the living room. just a few minutes later, one more cry, "i hug buddy! i hug buddy! SIT BUDDY! i hug buddy!"

fortunately, buddy is every bit as obliging as daddy. even more fortunately, we caught it on camera:

is it just me, or does buddy look just
a tad bemused? i'll pretend it's at john's
fashion faux pas and not the hug.
