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!

have you seen myron?

john was excited to wear his fireman rain jacket this morning. but (surprise!) he
would never hold still long enough for me to get a good picture!

this weekend when my husband and i were in the kitchen, john came tearing into the room from his bedroom. he stopped right in front of me, and said, "mommy, have you seen myron?"

i said, "who's myron, baby?"

he said, "myron!" and turned to his daddy. "daddy, where's myron?"

daddy said, "who's myron, john?"

and john ran back into the other room. we went back to doing dishes or cooking or whatever we were up to before the strange myron interlude, not thinking much of it -- after all, our little dude is both creative and very impressionable, so who knows whether he invented myron or saw him on tv or what.

a few minutes later, a little blur came tearing into the kitchen again. 

"mommy ..." he said.

"yes, my love?" i said.

"who's myron?" he asked, seeming slightly puzzled.

"i don't know, john." was my reply.

"yes you DO! mommy, who's myron?" he asked again.

"we don't know who myron is," interjected daddy.

and john was off again. just another day in the somewhat surreal life, i suppose!
