Thinking outside the lunchbox.
What little one would not want to eat this? Read more here.
Something that surprised me when I started blogging was COMMUNITY. I had no idea I would ‘meet’ such great people. There are many amazing mom bloggers that I have learned so much from, and have had a great time commenting back and forth with. I’d like to introduce you to one of them. Her name is Sarah, from For The Love Of Naps. Isn’t that a great title? She is a “Lover Of Naptime,” the mom of two young boys, and she “takes each day, starts fresh, and tries to learn moment to moment.” Her perspective on life and parenting is one to be admired. This quote is under her header on her blog:
“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.”
-Anna Quindlen(Loud and Clear , 10–11)
Yep, she ‘gets it,’ and I love reading and learning from someone who does! She has a great way of seeing things through the eyes of children and instinctively knows what would delight them. Here are a few fun food posts of that in action, shared with her permission. Read on, then take some time to go visit her, here.
Just in time for Valentines Day, a healthy- for- your- heart breakfast.
See how she did it here.
She created some love at lunchtime, read about it here.
If she lived closer, I’d invite myself over and just hope she would serve food
on a toothpick! She even suggested making little mini pea kabobs, so cute.
How blessed are her boys? Brings this verse to mind:
“Her children get up and give her honour, and her husband gives her praise…Proverbs 31:28
