Too Cool for School

I picked Z and a friend up from school today. This is the conversation as we drove out of the carpool line:

Z: Mommy, I want a different backpack.
Me: WHY??
Z: Because when I carry this one in my school, I feel dorky.
Me (after regaining composure): Well, what kind of backpack would you like?
Z's friend: Just a different one.
Z: Maybe like a hunting one.

OMG! I can't have my kid feeling dorky on just the first week of Kindergarten!! What in the world?!

Hilarious! Stinkin' Pottery Barn Kids for being out of stock on the cool skateboard camo backpack!

Well, I loved the back pack! If you want another one with his name on it you could try pottery barn- they have a camo one that you can have personalized. I got Bellas from there with the matching lunchbox and LOVE IT! Don't you just love little kid stuff?!

Haha!!! This is so funny! I love that his friend said "just a different one."

That's pretty funny! By looking back at my school photos, it is apparent that I didn't feel "dorky" until at least the ninth grade! Good looking out Z!
