First Purchase

So he dug through my purse and found lollipops the teller at our bank had given me the day before. He had never seen a lollipop to my knowledge, yet he knew what that wrapper really meant, "Candy!". I let him enjoy the discovery for a little while. The unfinished (and forgotten) lollipop sits in our refridgerator.
"Tut-tut wayne". He spotted this umbrella at the Goodwill and had to have it. The image of him patiently waiting in line with a five dollar bill is burned in my brain. I wish I had a camera then. He kept trying to hand the money to the clerk while she was with other customers ahead of us in line. He didn't take his eyes off her, trying to give her the money so he could have it, like mommy said.

The only safe game I know with an umbrella is to walk around saying "tut-tut, it looks like rain." G was escorted out back to practice umbrella safety. (The way he swings this thing someone will lose an eye...). This Blue's Clues umbrella opens with ease, and is surprisingly well made. "Tut-tut wayne..."

wayne, wayne and more wayne. We have seen plenty this month. And what a great photo to dress up my desktop for awhile!
