Back to School for Moms

7 Back to School Vows I'll Make -- & Break (PHOTOS)

back to schoolThe clock is counting down. Though it feels like I just took this photo of my daughter on the LAST day of school, all of a sudden, we only have a few more weeks until it's back to school time! And that means only three more weeks to evolve into a much more organized, calm, sane person! If you count those three years of preschool, this will be my SEVENTH year dealing with school as a mom. (Wow.) So by this time, I should really have my act together, right? 


Funny! Here are 7 vows I'm making that will ensure this year I'll finally have the routine down pat, no missing permission slips, and beautiful, easy mornings ... a mom can dream, right?

What are the back to school vows you'd like to make this year?

Please, please, over commit.  The PTO in our school has a whole 3 people - granted the school is just under 200 kids, but come one people - it more people would just commit to an hour a month then no one would have to over commit.  Sorry - first day of school - tried to bribe people with doughnuts - two showed up - just pissed me off

Lol at the Basket-O-Chaos. I have one too but it takes over the whole bakers rack during the school year.

I'd like to vow to have creative lunches for the kids every day. But I know I'll revert to PB and J on busy days.

I don't have a vow as of yet.  I will think about it and come back if I figure one out.   These are cute vows.
