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!

little man big chair

he looks so little ... but so grown.
today i was the only member of our family that had to go to work/school. so when john woke up, i figured i'd try to keep him situated in his room so that daddy could snooze just a little bit more. so i set john up with a blanket, some chocolate milk, and his iguy, and he snuggled in to watch a kid-oriented documentary about helicopters on netflix. i know the show was about 26 minutes long.

i went to get ready for work.

not too much later, daddy woke up. john had been awful quiet watching his helicopters in his room, so i went to go check on him.

still sitting there, nestled in his chair.

"whatcha watching, love?" i asked him.

"just helicopters," he said distractedly.

i thought to myself, but surely the helicopters show is over. and i peered down at the iguy ... and discovered that this kid can now officially operate his ipad. "did you restart it, baby?" i asked?

and he said, "it was over. i pushed the arrow to start it."

wow. kids these days ...
