Bells are ringing and crowds are cheering, for it’s Back To School Monday!
Otis seems to have developed a love of dressing up for occasions, which I think is truly fantastic. These “occasions” include such non-dressy events as cookie decorating or going on a play date, but it’s hard to argue when you see him admire his own reflection with such obvious joy. Never one to dissuade quirky dressing, I bought him a sportscoat, and he was so pleased he put it on right away and then jumped around like an overexcited puppy. I think the kid’s one pair of seersucker pants away from the Kennedy compound but going back to school after two weeks at home is definitely an occasion to celebrate.
Next, I will work on getting him to wear the bowtie that my Mom bought him for Christmas. That will definitely make for one happy Mama here.
