Experiences at the interface of life, law, and motherhood in Cali

An Awesome Lawmama Day

I think it started last night when husband texted me that he would get Carl’s Jr. on the way home from his Bar study session at the library. A $6 burger, chocolate shake, and chili fries make any normal night great. Plus Big Bang Theory and Rules of Engagement are on, totally awesome.

I spent the morning with my friend and her husband at the California Bar Swearing in Ceremony, and it was so fantastic. The judge-speakers emphasized several themes including living a whole life (with several mentions of family, and a statement that having the kiddos there was ok-this was the admittees’ day!), maintaining your integrity/reputation, giving back–especially in the given economy, and making the profession proud. Solely due to pregnancy hormones, I’m sure, I almost wept everytime they said something that really hit home, which was mostly everything. It was also so funny to see my Criminal Procedure professor seated up front with the rest of the CA Ct. of Appeals 🙂

After a wonderful lunch & good conversation, I headed home to hang with kiddo and husband, and our grocery delivery finally came. And so did our replacement video monitory, finally! It is so funny to watch a toddler falling asleep, and kiddo is incredibly active, constantly standing up, laying down, rolling around, playing with her feet! No wonder her baby sister is always beating me up from the inside, she’s just training for her post-natal lifestyle!

Then, baby girl started her winding down with almost no crying, which is the opposite of how she has been lately because of her teething (we think). Anyway, it was just such a great, typical, nothing out of the ordinary day. Just another reason I love my life.
