I ordered it online from Pottery Barn Kids. It was on sale and I got free shipping. I couldn't not get it with that kind of discount.
So, yesterday morning when he woke up, we gave him his new backpack. It was his 21 month birthday gift to him. I had been wanting to get him one so that I can transition my diaper bag items to his backpack.
We were hesitant in getting his name monogrammed on it. For one main reason, I didn't want to give anyone the chance of calling his name and him going to them because they knew his name. Like in an airport or some other public place. But we decided that we'll do what normal parents do and keep a close eye on him. :)
Plus when he starts school (since we hope that this will be the bag he starts kindergarten with) he can identify his bag easily.
"where's your backpack, Bossy?"
We are pleased that he absolutely loves his backpack. He walked around with it on for a good 30 minutes. I think he thought he was somebody! :) It warms my heart to see him light up and happy.
