  1. I think these are all great ideas and advise: with a few months of lazy summer behind me I am seriously eager to get back into the swing of busy this coming season. Best of all my eldest goes back to school next week and I am looking to put youngest into daycare at least one day a week – so I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel… 🙂 I am ready to sink my teeth in!

      I am so with you Beka! My daughter goes back to school Tuesday & my youngest will be spending a couple mornings a week with a good friend & her little boy. I am totally looking forward to being able to focus my brain on one thing without always having the mama mind running full tilt: ) Cheers to September and sinking our teeth in!!!! (oh, and belatedly replying to emails-sorry!)
