Happy August, and 1st Day of our Back to School Bash!

Back to school means so much more than getting the latest and greatest products for our kids. The teens want the latest electronics, and the tweens want some sort of fictional chacacter plus the hottest trends, and the younger ones just want to be cool like the big kids.

Moms.. well, we want the babies to stay babies, the young kids to stay little longer and not be so sassy, the tweens to stop talking back, and the teens to be safe and smart- in everything they do. Or at least that's what I'm told. As a mom of a 7 and 4 year old, this season "Back to School" will bring *me* back to basics..

Back to a routine, back to a schedule, back to the organized chaos which is my life. This year with both of my children in school, I am looking forward to the quiet that will greet me when I come home after dropping them off. Then, I suspect I will get all mushy because my baby is in school, but then, (I hope) I will feel exhilarated. This is my year to take care of me. To take care of my house, and organize it the way I want it. To get my bedroom feeling like the sanctuary it should be for me, and to go back to school to finish my degree. This would be the first time in about 8 years, I'm taking control of my life again. And I deserve it.

So this year, for our Back to School Bash, I decided to do things a little differently. I extended it, for one, and made it a whole month long. Then, I decided that it was going to have a lot more than reviews and giveaways. I want you to come to 4BabyAndMom to find the best Back to School Deals out there, so I started my Under $1 series. I asked some experienced moms and grandmas for their best back to school advice, and many said stuff that had to do with dinner, so I included some food themed reviews, giveaways and recipes exclusively for back to school. And lastly, we lined up many of today's latest and greatest companies to show you some fun, exciting and interesting products you should have this back to school season- around the house, at school, and on the go- for families with kids of all ages!

I really hope you like what we have in store for you. Marissa has been doing a ton of work behind the scenes, and I cannot thank her enough. We make a great team, and are having a blast doing what we do. If you have a product that you would like featured during this event or on 4BabyAndMom in September, please feel free to contact us, as we have very few spaces still available in our line up.

If you are just joining us, grab our button from this post, and make sure you leave a comment so you earn early bird entries into our Back to School Bash giveaways!  (Extra entries will range from 1-5 entries per giveaway!)

Many of our giveaways will be open to residents of USA and Canada, so please be sure to read the print at the bottom of any giveaway. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email at 4BabyAndMom at gmail dot com.

Keep your eyes open a little later tonight for our very first review and giveaway- something I think every home should have! (Which, if you read my blog you'll realize that's a VERY rare thing for me to say!) Happy August!!
