I saw this on iMOM and thought it'd be something great to try :) This site has great printables and challenges that I will be using and printing and possibly blogging about! It's a tad hard to see so I've typed the daily challenges out below. I know it's only a 30 day challenge and October has 31 days so I added the last one. Who needs a daily reminder to do stuff for/with your child? A 6 month pregnant mom of a 2 year old that likes testing me, that's who :) Some of these are for older kids but we will improvise with something else. I will try to update on how it went in November. I know I'm posting this 4 days late, so if you want to join in, start on Day 4.
