Nebraska natives Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley of the popular web series “IMomSoHard” reminded roughly 400 women — and a few men — Thursday night that there’s no such thing as a perfect mom.

After a summer of always being on the run, I’m happy to have the fall to settle back into reading. Here are a few light beach fall reads for you to fly through.

A good night’s sleep – or lack of – can affect many aspects of the day. Sleep improves attention, memory and mood, while too little sleep can cause anxiety, irritability, low energy. It also can cause children to become more prone to illness and accidents.

Some people get all jazzed for Christmas or can’t wait until summer and the pools open. But if I were the one voting for “best season,” it would be without hesitation that little transitional period between the summer and the snow. F.A.L.L. FALL!
