"Calming Down" Time

Soft comforts!  Who can't love this?  Petting a furry-purry cat with one hand, and hugging a silky-lovey with the other. Jude sure knows how to take a "play" break.  And I thought the answer was a box of chocolates and a good movie. Just snapping the picture soothed my soul. The best part of this moment was the chatter between the two. Although I couldn't understand a word either one said, it was clear that they did.
Take a break and enjoy,
Bubbie and Jude
P.S.  Any tips of your own, for helping the kids with down time?

  1. Petting a cat is an amazing soother. I think they've done studies in which they've found that it actually lowers blood pressure.

  2. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I googled your info and found that petting a cat not only helps humans, but helps the cat, too!

  3. Isn't it nice that the little ones seem to know when they need a break. I wish I did.

  4. Great point! I'll need to add that to my list of lessons learned from my grandkids!
