Ultimate Blog Party

I think spring has finally arrived here in Minnesota...which means the days are longer, which makes for more time to blog and read blogs - yeah, right.  But I'm going to try and join in on the fun of 5 Minute for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party.

Hi!  I'm Sarah...the lover of naptime.

I used to think that naptime was when I could get a little me time to blog among other things.  My first son, Charley(6) was a great napper...but my second child decided napping needed to stop at the age of 2 1/2...and with the addition of our third (Sydney - born January 2011), we aren't quite on a nap schedule to say the least...this mama isn't really getting any naptime breaks.


My blog is my little place to share my reflections on life as a wife, mom, and woman.  I love that my blog allows for me to find a wonderful moment each day to celebrate, while also keeping it real and sharing in some of the realities of motherhood.  I also love to share pictures, recipes, offer fun activities to do with your children, and just ramble on.  So take a look around and I hope to find a minute to stop and visit you if you leave your info.  I am always looking for inspiration.

A couple posts to check out...

The "F" word...

Tomorrow I GET to have a great day

Kabobs - KABAM!

Hi Sarah! Saying "HI" from the UBP! Love your blog.. especially the "F" word post. How great is that .. F.. for Focus! I think our focus changes as the kids grow.. and as we grow. Napping (mine both stopped at 2.5yrs)..and it sucked at the time. Now they are 10 and 8 with attitude. I miss my babies, and nursing a little one and reading The Hungry Caterpillar! I still don't get a lot done.. if it's not one thing it's another. I love your bottle of red (oh I focused right in on that! LUVS). I guess my focus right now is on doing the things that I like, nurturing my interests so I can be a better Mom, wife, daughter and fried! Great meeting you! Happy Blogging!

I think naps are great if you have one or two kids that are spaced apart. Anything more than that, though, and the logistics are hard to work out. I know I spend most of my daughter's naps just trying to keep my 4 year old quiet, and that's obviously not very relaxing for me. Oh well. I think I may have been by before, the name sounds familiar, but I'm glad I got swing back by again from the UBP!

Hi there!
Stopping by from the UBP.
I love naps, too -- unfortunately, both of our children gave them up at age 2. They do still have "quiet times" every day, though. ;D

Nice to meet ya!

I love naps too! Too bad my 4 year old never falls asleep anymore! At least I have some Mommy-time to craft and sew when my 2 year old is down :) Following from UBP!
