  1. Squish Away The Stress

    Squish Away The Stress

    It is about that time to…. DE-STRESS.

    Stress levels have been off the walls lately and I don’t have time to go to yoga every day or to start meditating! My stress seems to rub off on my kids, then to my husband, and I have found myself and my family caught up in a never-ending cycle.

    One thing we loved almost as much as our actual baby brother was our baby dolls. We would spend hours building cradles and houses for our babies. I think this is why I love the new Melissa & Doug Mine to Love Baby Care Activity Center so much!
