as a mom, i know all too well that there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that needs to get done. so much to do, and so little time. does any mom EVER have a moment to sit down and figure out how she’s going to save enough money for her child’s college? you may have even heard of ScholarShare, California’s 529 savings plans, but have you had a moment to check out what it’s all about? i admit, it’s definitely a hard task to do while juggling  kids, the lunch packing, the laundry, the grocery shopping and the cleaning.

there’s school pick-ups…

there’s swim practice and dance lessons….
