School is coming back in to session, and for some…the daily grind of getting your little (or big) ones ready for their day.

This issue has been brought to light on more than one occasion, and not just from the different media outlets…but out from the mouth of your children. The bigger issues parents face is actually trying to find the time to make lunches for your children to take to school. It seems as if there is just not enough time in a day to make it happen. My was a single parent, so her time was crucial between us, work and her going to school to get a better education. So, most days were filled with PB&J sandwiches with a side a cheerios in a Ziploc bag…and I’m so not complaining about it. I happen to love PB&J sandwiches!
