The other day when I was out shopping, I came across two little backpacks that were just the right size for Maddie and Izzie and I knew I had to buy them. We are at that time of year where I 'should' be putting away gifts for Christmas, but I don't operate that way. When I see something I know they will love, I just have to give it to them right away. I got home from buying the backpacks just as the girls were waking up from naptime. As they came down the stairs with John, I told them I had a surprise for them. To say they love their new backpacks is an understatement. I think they'd sleep in them if I let them!
This morning I let the girls take their backpacks to storytime. The plan was for them to be able to pick out some books to put in them, but I forgot my library card! They didn't care, they just carried around empty backpacks.
