|Joaquin chose this cute zipper pouch because it had a GARBAGE TRUCK on it!!!|
|And CARS inside!|
I really wanted one of Chase's owls, so I let Joaquin pick the one we would bring home:
|Too cute, no?|
from Beholden Vintage & Resale. Joaquin used it as "his" purse for the rest of the day. So cute...sweet...innocent...no idea that this could be fodder for teasing by other kids.
It was a very charming day...I found two t-shirts at the fair for my son, Ian. He's 23 and likes to wear shirts with funny captions. I thought this was a hilarious choice to give to my meat-eating son from his vegetarian, candy-store owning Mama:
Last year I bought Ian a shirt that said "Meat is MURDER" and then in tiny letters below "tasty, tasty murder". He loves it because, besides being funny, if any vegetarians give him grief about it, he has an easy explanation of "My mom's a vegetarian and it was gift from her."
I also found this one:
My son likes ninja's and I used to call him "Fat Boy" when he was a teenager because he was so skinny. I was an obnoxious mother, I hope Ian forgives me. He is coming up from southern CA at the end of this month for a visit. We have a great time playing "The Settlers of Catan", although we call it "Siedler" because we learned to play from our German friend, Almut, and her lovely family. Ian is teaching me to play chess, so we have some fun one-on-one time with that. Joaquin loves his big brother. Plus, my husband likes eat meat and I won't cook it and he doesn't like to cook--but Ian does! So they usually enjoy a couple of nice steaks together. Plus, Ian will usually babysit one night while he's here, so Mark and I can have a night out together. Everybody is happy when Ian comes to town!!
