Wesley really wanted a backpack with a character on it… Most of them are not for me.
But then he found a good one with Mario on it.
When we went for kindergarten testing another kid had his backpack… So I started to think of ways to make it more unique. And since it is mostly white – I was worried that it would become mostly brown in no time.
So I decided to color it. At first I was just going to color a few. Then that evolved into coloring them all. Then Wesley wanted the background area a color too…
Here is my finished product:
Wesley LOVES his Mario backpack even more now that when he picked it out from the store. I have to say… I love it more now too.
I can’t wait to see it on him tomorrow for his first day of kindergarten!
