Back To School Reality Check-In For Minnesota Moms

Ok, mommas, how are we doing right now?  Seriously.  Those who are sending your babies off to Kindergarten or Preschool for the first time to those with adult kids starting college...I've been in ALL of your shoes.

I also know that some of you are going to follow the bus that first day and, I am giving you permission to jump in your car and follow it all the way to school.  I just dropped off one of my babies at a college 9 hours away from Minnesota.  Yes, 9 hours.  At some point, you won't be able to follow your baby so do it while you can.

One huge task that every parent will be doing is those famous back-to-school photos and I've got an awesome way below to make those extra cute this year!
