Back to school- Feeling stressed?
Exhausted from the summer, but still need to push through and get back into a good routine? Yeah that is how I feel too. I am using this September as a new beginning full of great, wonderful possibilities. I am looking forward to a fresh start. I have decided to be an organized mummy (with a hint of mummy mess). That means, eating healthy, working out, and staying on track with things. I am 100 per cent committed. I find that some parents really like staying on track with mobile apps, here are some that might be useful to you.
