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!

i missed something

our ornery little valentine.
yesterday i was under the weather, so i stayed home from work. i have never been so thankful for daycare as yesterday - being able to pry myself out of bed just long enough to take john to school, then come back and sleep uninterrupted most of the day was a GODSEND.

i'm feeling much better today - although our little valentine was in a pretty icky mood this morning. he did cheer up before school, so that's good!

he was in an icky mood yesterday morning, too, but he recovered more quickly. once he was dressed and i was almost ready to leave, he ran through the kitchen, saying to me, "i better now, mommy!" as he zoomed past.

then he stopped in his tracks, pivoted, and looked back at me. "i missed something!" he cried out.

"what did you miss, john?" i said, a little nervous that this was about to devolve into more tears.

but instead, he broke into a beautiful grin. "i love you so much!" he said, and zoomed away.

it might have been 24 hours early, but that was a heck of a valentine.
