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!

under the weather

'bout sums it up.
so, she said self-centeredly, you may have noticed that there was no john update yesterday. there are two good reasons for that:

reason #1: under the weather (see blog title)
there is no one in our family who is feeling 100% right now. ok, buddy might be fine - it's hard to get a self-diagnosis from a dog. but my husband's sinus/tonsil issues appear to be back, i've been exhausted and experiencing belly issues, and john is suffering from some generalized two-year-old malaise that manifests in a desire only to curl up on the couch with a blanket.

reason #2: traffic
that might not seem to make a lot of sense on the surface of things. but yesterday was the worst traffic day i've ever experienced in baton rouge. a tanker carrying isobutane (similar to propane if i understand correctly) was in an accident on i10, so the interstate was closed down in both directions from 3:45 yesterday morning through 6:00am today. this led to the most ridiculous city-wide traffic jam you've ever seen.

it took me 3.5 hours to get to work yesterday. i got to the mall at 11:30 a.m. and, fearful of the commute home, i left at 2:30 to work from home so i could make sure i made it to pick john up on time. 

so, after that adventure, i just didn't have a lot of umph left for a blog post. 

and apparently, i don't have a lot of umph today either, since this is maybe the lamest post i've ever made. so just focus on that cute blanket-buried kiddo in the pic up there, and maybe tomorrow john's family will be up to more shennanigans and hijinks.
