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!

life is perfect in its imperfection

pig pile on mommy

i propose a survey. what is the funniest part of this picture:
1) that even lying down for a pig pile, john can't sit still for an instant
2) that buddy thought the pie-slice between my feet was the perfect place to rest
3) that little lizard. why am i holding a little lizard? this was just a day ago, and i can't remember.

whichever is your favorite part, my favorite part is this: what a picture of perfection that is. i'm not perfect. john's not perfect. buddy's not perfect. (the lizard may be perfect - the jury is still out.) my husband can't be in the pic because he's taking it, so that's not perfect. but the sum of those imperfect parts is pretty amazing. and damn close to perfect.

p.s. i am psyched to say that i just had a couple of articles published on yahoo! i'm not a big fan of shameless self-promotion, but if you enjoy the blog you may enjoy these as well. this one is just a little thought on some music that played a big role in one summer of my life, and this one is a rework of a blog entry you may have read here. if either speaks to you, feel free to share. (and in the spirit of full disclosure, i do stand to make money from these articles.)
