It's back to school time, which also means here comes more stress, anxiety, excitement, and dread, right? As a new parent, I can only imagine how hard it must be to re-establish a daily routine after a couple months of freedom.

If all else fails, remember this: freshly baked cookies as an after school treat always make a bad day better. Or is it just me that feels this way?
