I found a good, quick read about tips for families with toddlers, “Simplifying Christmas for Toddlers.” I love the idea of simplicity and have been trying to add it to my life for several years now.
In the article, the author talks about how to take time to be a family. Christmas gets so overwhelming at times. Add a toddler to the mix and you can have chaos.
I love how the article ends:
Lower Your Own Stress Level
Toddlers have an innate ability to sense when the people they love are stressed. If you are feeling stressed through the holiday season due to over scheduling your time, your toddler is going to feel stressed as well. Help you toddler to have a peaceful Christmas by taking the time to take care of yourself.
Good advice for the moms out there who need a break from all we are trying to get done.
