30 Day Mom Challenge

I supposed to post this yesterday but I was busy removing broken links in my three blogs. Click here if you are interested to know how to remove broken links. Anyway, this mom challenge is just in time because June has exactly 30 days. Some challenges are easy and some are not. I will give this a try and see what happen.

2. Go the whole day without yelling at your children.
