    We're experienceing technical difficulties... stay tuned.

    Okay, here's the deal. Emma has decided that she doesn't need naps anymore. This has not only thrown our schedule for a loop but also made her extremely grumpy and clingy. I hope this is a short phase of her either adjusting to no naps or going back to taking them. Since I usually blog and go on freebie hunts during her naptime I'm at a loss currently as to when I'll be able to fit it all in. I'll get it worked out soon and stop in when I can to post freebies I know of in the meantime. I don't have a Friday freebie for you all because I can't find the file, I know it's on my computer somewhere but but the little bugger is hiding. I need a vacation or a backrub, I'm willing to pay big time for either at this point. Or even a pint of Baskin Robbins mint chip would work. You can scroll down and grab the add-on to Perfectly Poppies that I posted yesterday. Sorry, to be such a slacker but Emma is more than I can handle right now and with hubby on 12 hour shifts this week he's no help at all since he's not around.

    Maty Anne has a alph to match her new kit Lilies and Daisies for you.
    (She also has a cool PSP script for making buttons up for grabs here.)
    Mrs. Miles has some neat veggie elements on her blog.
    Misty has some transportation stickers.
    Lindsay Jane has a Melon mini kit.
    Heather has a cool template for you.
    Ksharonk has an add-on for her new kit Boy Stuff.
    Christine has a cool new kit called Go Camping grab the papers here and the alpha here.
    Kim B. has a beautiful new set of Vintage overlays in her shop and a free one for you!
    Julie O. has part 3 of Eastern Spice up for grabs.
    Angela has 2 Star-Spangled QPs for you.
    Remember to leave some love y'all!

    I'm with you on the Baskin Robbins Mint Chip ice cream. That can cure just about anything! Hope you find some time to relax and hope Miss Emma gets her naptime figured out. My little bugger is going through that right now too. :(

    My little piece of advice since I know you want it. lolol Try for quiet time for Emma instead of a nap. She can lay down read or play a quiet game for an hour or so. We did this with my son for a while and it worked. They eventually outgrow that too. But at her age she still needs the rest, and so do you. Don't worry about us, we may have to hunt our own freebies. Thanks for all your work.

    Poor Amy! I remember those days! I also did what Diana said...quiet time with books and then they usually fell asleep for awhile. Be stern...she needs the rest almost more than you do! Just remember, there will be a time when you actually miss these days!
    Take your time...we'll be here!

    Good evening Amy:)
    Sounds like you have your hands full.:) Thank you for all the many times you were able to find the freebies for us.I sure appreciate it.:)
    I agree...quiet time reading is a lot better than no quiet time at all.:)
    Just wanted to stop in and catch up on what you have been doing.:)
    Thank you for the Poppies add on.:)The colors go really well together.:)

    Hugs,
    Valinda

    Don't feel pressured to live up to this huge expectation that you have set - providing constant freebies and freebie links. Everyone thinks you are wonderful for all you have done! But Emma comes FIRST. The is the most important season of your life - raising her is the most lasting accomplishment you will ever have.

    Thank you for all you do. I read your list daily. You shouldn't feel badly when you have a life that keeps you from us readers. Good luck with the new nap schedule -- sadly they do go away (2 of my 3 don't nap anymore). But you'll find new ways to get quiet time again!!! Once again, thanks for everything!!

    Thanks for a great list again. But as others have said before, family first and we all agree. When you find a new routine we will all be excited to hear about it and think about the pictures you can get spending the nap time hours doing things together, so you can work on layouts when her routine changes again and you have more free time.
