HomeParentingMom ConfessionBack to School 101 – Infographic July 24, 2012This post may include affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy. Back to School – ALREADY? EEK! I guess so. My nephsons in Nashville start back to school August 1. Thankfully our kids don’t start until the end of August, so we have a wee bit more time to sleep in and enjoy the lazy days of summer. Even though we have a month left until school start, I guess I should be getting back into the swing of things, you know like showering our kids regularly and making sure they have school clothes. My friends at Plum District recently did a survey on moms and back to school. Here is what they found: Moms Report – Back to School 101 Infographic Are moms excited about their kids going back to school? YES! 39% are excited 26% are relieved – I guess I fall into the 8% sad.
