Naptime: The Vlog

I've come to cherish naptime in the past couple of weeks of being a pretend SAHM.  It's a glorious 2 hours in which I clean, craft, blog and lay down on the floor for a bit.

Toph is on to me, of course and has since made it his life's mission to not nap.  Watch the 5 minute vlog below (my first one ever!) to see what I mean.

Aww, you did a great job and Toph is adorable! You need to try the #vlogtalk prompts - they are super fun and a nice change of pace. Thank goodness for any amount of naptime!

I was never very patient with nap time. I used to have to lay down with my son until he fell asleep; I got lots of naps that way! What a great cat! As for your voice, you have a "teacher" voice! And yes, you look fabulous ;-)

He's just too cool for naps :) I was amazed at how long Mary actually hung out in the crib. I hate how my voice sounds too, but yours sounded just fine to me!

Great job with your first vlog! Your son is adorable. And your voice is fine -- much better than mine. Your cat cracked me up too. That cat loves you huh?

What a great blog--I especially like your "niche" post. I agree! I'm also a teacher/reader/mom experiencing the pseudo SAHM life right now.

I found you through the blog hop and am following. I hope if you get a chance you'll check out my stuff at If you like it, I hope you'll follow along.

Gin, your son is adorable! Clearly he gets it from his gorgeous mother! You look wonderful on the vlog btw. Lol! I am sure you will eventually get your afternoon mommy time before the summer is over. Enjoy this time with your LO.

I love you even more in person! You're so cute and I don't think your voice is's girlie! =)
God Toph is freaing adorable and makes me miss having a baby. But not enough now that little Marshall is completely potty trained! =)
I hope you do more of these for us! Your bravery might just be contagious!

Great job on your first vlog! I still don't have the courage to do one.

And, I totally remember nap times with my son. I would look forward to them just so I could get stuff done.
