When You See Mothers Hold It Together On Instagram, it might look like some mothers hold it together perfectly. They go traveling with their families to seemingly beautiful locations, they stroll down the mall and calmly shop. Other moms show their followers their fab finds, with their children smiling and looking like they enjoy what their moms bought them.

Heroes of Olympus Series, Cymplified!
The book fair started it! With one of the books from Heroes of Olympus series. My eldest kid had an aversion to novels... Basically books without pictures, because, she found it boring.
