Day # 60: backpack

   I don't consider myself an expert on anything really. But I feel like I am when it concerns the best way to lug around all my kid's crap personal necessities. I took Savannah to her new preschool last week, brought her backpack and was told, "Oh she won't be needing this, you can take it home." Okay, I get it, it's preschool.  She is supposed to bring only a lunchbox with a small snack. However, upon picking her up everyday last week, she had an art project, a book from the library, a note from the school, and the coat that she shed sometime during the course of the day. oh and her lunchbox. And I have no backpack to put it in. So now I'm carrying all of her stuff, trying to keep tabs on both kids, and weave in and out of the cars in the parking lot (because there is not a carpool line, but I'll rant about that another day).
   I know, it's a petty complaint, but it's a stupid not a well thought out way of doing things. And since I'm the newcomer to the scene, I feel like I'm in the perfect position to ask why the kids don't bring backpacks. I mean, is there a way I could kindly suggest that the 4 year old class bring backpacks? I would really just like to hear the reasoning behind the decision. If there is any. I've said it before, but it's the little things that make a big difference in a mother's life like... coffee, or helping a frazzled mother with her shopping cart, or a nap. And bringing a backpack to preschool is one of them.
