In this episode, brought to you from studio 203 in Madison, Wisconsin, we interview Lindsey Cox, mother of three and author of the blogs Enjoy the Journey and Finding Contentment in the Suburbs, about how busy moms can slow down, stress less, and stay sane. We also talk about lifestyle sabbaticals, alternatives to watching TV, and a new action figure for moms.
