We’re kicking off week two of our #weePLAN series with Weelicious and Savvy Sassy Moms. This week it’s all about leftovers. Leftovers are never a fan favorite in my home.

Back to school is such a fun and exciting time. School supplies, school clothes, new friends, new teacher, but it can also be a stressful time—not just for mom sending her kiddos off for the day but for the kids too. My son is diagnosed with autism, and although he thrives in a structured setting like school, sometimes there are moments during the day when he just can’t keep it together. (more…)
