Bringing home a new addition can be stressful and frightening all on its own. Add a toddler or preschooler to the mix and you may feel like you may no longer rule the roost. It’s not as if we as new parents we didn’t already have enough to worry about. So how do you help your toddler through a new baby? You clone yourself.
Just kidding. If only it were that simple.
Self-care is “for you, by you”. It is a time to focus your mind and energy on yourself, giving you a mental and physical break from the stresses of life.
There are few things in life that can bring you as much stress, mental anguish, and physical hardship as those tiny humans we love so much. We do everything from growing them to grooming them. Even the glamorous stuff like wiping butts. How lucky.
