Best Mom Advice 6/4/13

Sharing is caring!

I am a few days late getting this best mom advice list together. These last couple of days have been busy ’round here. Enjoying ice cream and cleaning up ketchup and egg messes.  Ya know, everyday life for a city slicker.

Is school out where you live yet? Many of the public school districts here are out for summer, those that are not yet end this week. We homeschool, so the traditional school year does not apply to us- we do work year round and take breaks as we want and need.

Although there were 151 ideas shared last week, there were 5 that had the most clicks. Below is an overview of those top 5 ideas. Like, the best mom advice on the planet. Make sure you check them out and if you have time hop over and check out all of the tips shared.
