My friends and I like to bore our kids with stories about how we applied to college back in the Gen-X heyday: We had to pull forms off the back of college brochures, type all our information and essay responses on an actual typewriter and mail them.

The back-to-school madness is approaching. Gone will be the lazy summer days where late nights, sleeping in and lax routines were the norm. It’s back to juggling the demands of your job with the needs of your on-the-go children while also squeezing in chores, homework, making dinner and shuttling everyone to athletic practices, recitals and doctors’ appointments. And, oh yeah, at some point, everyone is supposed to sleep.
