Avoid the Winter Blues with BabbaBox

This has been the coldest, wettest, snowiest, and iciest winter I’ve experienced since living in Knoxville. We’ve lived here for over 15 years and it’s the worst winter, yet. I hope it’s the worst I’ll ever experience. See, I don’t like cold weather. I only like one good snow a year… build a snow wo(man), do a little sledding, and I’m over it.

Now we have only had one snow (so far) this winter, but we have had a lot of rain, and as I type this we are in the midst of an ice storm. Just two weeks ago it was in the 70s and next Tuesday it is suppose to be in the 60s.


Seriously crazy weather. The kind that keeps everyone in the house — to go stir crazy. I only have one son, so it’s not AS bad as it is for my sister-in-law, for example. She has three boys.


I told her about BabbaBox. So she can escape the indoor blues with awesome adventures from BabbaCo. My s-i-l always encourages imaginative play among her boys, so BabbaBox is perfect for her.

    What an adorable idea. If I had grandchildren, especially ones who live far away I would so do this. Alas, my kids are are college aged and grandkids are still a few years away.
