Come join the party!

Pull up a chair, grab some munchies and join the Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a virtual party so that moms and dads across the blogosphere can connect. So head on over, check out the hundreds of blogs, add your blog to the party, and check out the prizes!

Now, a bit about me...

I'm a 29 year old Atlantic Canadian with a 2 year old daughter and a wonderful Hubby. I'm a music buff, a law school grad, a goof with those who know me well, a bit of a perfectionist, and a big fan of classic movies and old cartoons. I work part-time from home for a health promotion consulting company, but most days I'm happiest just hanging out with my daughter and enjoying her precious first years (ever wish you could stop the clock to savour the beauty of childhood?).

Painting Pink Pajamas is pretty new, but I've been blogging since 2003. My daughter was born in 2007, and my posts were few and far between for a long time. After sleep deprivation subsided, I started posting again, but found that I wanted to talk about being a parent! My daughter is 2 years old now, and recently I've been browsing a lot of great blogs for activity ideas. I decided to share some of my recommendations, activities to do with toddlers and musings about being a parent, so this blog was born. I hope you'll have a look around and share your thoughts!


P.S. If I'm lucky enough to win a UBP prize, my top five prize picks from the Canada/US list would be:

Handmade Retro Apron from BoojiBoo
SavvyGirl & Companies’ Candy Apples Bracelet
Big Combo Pack from Mabel's Labels
Box of laugh-friendly company books and doll
See Kai Run toddler shoes

Of course, winning anything else related to babies/young children would be great!

Thank you for stopping by my party!

It's too funny-when I read your party post and it said your daughter was born in 2007 I was thinking she would be a little one...then I scroll down and see a 2 year old! Which makes sense mathematically of course, but for some reason my brain completely went!

I did notice that she is a dolly though.

Great blog! Hope to see you around-enjoy party hopping :)

Sab said...

Hi! I'm coming from the UBP! I just had a lil girl last fall and am STILL trying to find time to blog again. But parenting is so much fun, don't you agree? I love finding ideas for fun things to do with kids! They are such a joy!

Love to see you over at my party! sabrinas-space.blogspot.com
