As most Mamas, I have 2 celebration of New Year's. The first comes on January 1st - as it does for everyone.
The 2nd comes at the start of August, know as "Back To School" time. For a mom this 2nd New Year is more prevalent than the first , because it means new schedules and routines. This year is a bit different because Dalton starts middle school and will be riding the bus. Today I worked my 'new' schedule. We did a lot of work on the this summer, and I really need to focus my attention on keeping the house clean and being more on top of things.
