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!

lay on mommy

it doesn't get any better than this.
(yes, john picked his own outfit.)
i know it's a natural part of the growing up process, but sometimes it makes me sad that the busier john is, the less he wants to just snuggle. sometimes i miss that tiny little thing that did nothing but cuddle in our arms. but of course i wouldn't trade this walking, talking, exploring beast for anything, so i just cherish the moments when he does want to be close.

sunday was a good day for snuggling. daddy and john got to snuggle a good portion of the morning, and when i came back from work (we had an event at the mall) all john wanted was to "lay on mommy" on the couch. there is really nothing finer than that little bug resting on my chest, his head nestled under my chin.

and i've discovered something beautiful about the affection of a toddler: it's almost all the more precious, because he chooses to give it to you. he has a choice about where to be and what to do - and he chooses "lay on mama." what a lucky lady i am.
