Life as a mom of three kids six and under can be, in a word, hectic. Which is why I really, really, really like having all of my best resources available in one spot – I just don’t have the time (or the patience) to go rummaging around all my pinterest boards seeking out what I need.
Judging by the wild popularity of this post, you guys are totally feeling me on this.
So today I’ve decided to repeat the magic, and once again round up the top 30 pins filling my feed lately. Some are our pins, some are pins I just got really excited about finding. Who knows, if this post does as well as the last one, maybe I’ll make it a series.
