School always seems to creep up on me like a stranger in the night. I feel like we have miles and miles of time before school starts. Then, WHAM — it’s school!
I created my book, Supporting Success to help moms be more prepared for school. I recommend you check it out!
I also asked some of my favorite Mom Blogger friends to share their best back to school posts.
