I also bought some other school supplies... some of my favorites... my Papermate felt tip pens in tons of different colors, my Bic mechanical pencils, my funky composition books (the kind that stay bound, no matter what)... but, the backpack was the big purchase. I had gone with Suzanne to take her kids to get their pictures taken (at Wal-Mart... need I say more?). We had lunch at Applebee's (another thing that you honestly live for when you live in Fairfield... we have good little interesting restaurants, but Pizza Hut is the only chain, non-fast food one... ick), and then we headed to Target.
The whole backpack thing led to a really funny exchange with Jack, who is 2 1/2.
Tena: Do you think I should get this backpack, Jack?
Jack: That's for people.
Tena: Jack, I'm people!
Jack: No, you're Tena.
