Keep Little Ones Organized this School Year with Stuck On You Backpacks, Labels & More + Backback # Giveaway ($50.00 RV)

Thanks so much to Stuck On You for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.

My kids have been back in school for a few weeks now. Big Bro B started school in mid-August (he's in 1st grade), and Baby S already has three weeks of Day School under her tiny belt. I never realized how much I would miss the summer. A lot of moms can't wait for their kids to go back to school, but I do miss mine when they're not home with me.A new school year means crazier than ever schedules, and many more demands made on dear old mom. I do my best to keep up with it all, using technology and other helpful tools, but I also stick to some tried and true old-school methods.

Math is Stylish with the Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus CE #review #MBPBacktoSchool

Thank you to Texas Instruments for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared below are my own. 

Texas Instruments is a well known name in many households.  I remember when I was in high school and I got to shop for my calculator for math class.  That was many, many years ago and I don't remember which style it was or what specific class I needed it for. But I do remember that it was not as fancy or as pretty as they are today.  I also didn't need it until high school and know they are on the middle school supply list.  Times have sure changed but Texas Instruments has changed along with that and are still there to provide what students need to succeed.

Momma, You Don't Have To Do It Alone!

If you're a Mother, you'll know all the different roles you have to play in order to juggle everything from work life, family life, and relationships.

When times get tough, and you start to feel overwhelmed, it's okay to take a break and ask for help! That doesn't make you weak or a 'bad Mother' - it makes you a human being.

So if you feel like you're barely able to stay above water - it's time to take a load off. Here's how you can do that.
