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!

don't say that

i've mentioned before that john is speaking in full sentences, but sometimes it's pretty clear he doesn't quite get what it is he is saying.

for example, one of his favorite things to say right now is, "don't say that, that's not nice!"

however, he is just as prone to say that when you say "i love you" as when you say "do you want a spanking?"

best i can tell, "don't say that, that's not nice" loosely translates to "that's not what i want you to say right now."

and best i can tell, the "don't watch john" in the video above loosely translates to "i want to play, not be videoed right now!"

that's what i tell myself, anyway - the alternative is that i am a REALLY not nice mommy. ("don't SAY that mommy. that's not nice!")
