Mama Drama: December Birthday Blues

Dear Mama Drama: My three-year-old daughter has a December birthday and we are inundated with toys and “stuff” from our very generous family. We appreciate their gifts, but are all a bit overwhelmed by the amount of new toys. My daughter tends to leave them strewn about the house bouncing from one activity to the next, then struggles to clean them up usually ending in a meltdown. We need ideas to help find some balance with it all. (photo credit) ~Appreciative, But Overwhelmed Mama
