bean's top ten fall must have items for back to school

#10: Crayons.

#9: Plastic forks and spoons.

#8: Kitchen drawers. Which are excellent for containing the plastic forks and spoons.

#7:Tilly and the Wall's Alphabet Song.

#6: Battery operated radio we keep in the car. Called for some unknown reason CHEEM.

#5: Books.

#4: Elmo's Duck Song.

#3: Elmo. Called LA LA LA. Occasionally it is demanded of the mother to dress Elmo in a skirt. When this happens, I tell myself that this is ElmA, Elmo's winsome but much less famous twin sister.

#2: Hurp. His name was given and agreed upon before Alice came to be. And way before we started putting a Y on the end of everything Bean-related. ...He continues to be the one item that we work exceedingly hard to REFRAIN from adding the Y. For obvious reasons.

#1: Bo. Her best friend, her nap partner, her favorite thing among all things, her woobie.

(Don't touch my woobie, man.)

... And because clearly I expect you to read through an entire post (and WATCH VIDEOS) before I announce the winner of the sock-pod... the winner is comment #16: Clueless But Hopeful Mama. I'll be emailing you shortly, CBHM, for your digits.

Now. Go rewatch Elmo's ducks another 4,567 times and we'll be even. It's the kind of ear worm craziness that will have you SINGING IT AT 2AM, though I still don't hate the song. Go figure. (My favorite duck is the last one with the super deep voice.)

I really need to get some of those stripey tights. That would really bring my church wardrobe together, man.

The woobie. Long live the woobie!

Also: don't touch my woobie.

Woobie, woobie, woobie!!!

What about her darling clothes? Surely that's a must for school.

We have the Fridge DJ too! :)

I love that Elmo is called LA LA LA!

Don't touch my woobie! Ha!

Alice is so cute... I'm going to miss her!

I happened to be the care giver for 2 & 1/2 year old Gracie Jayne on Thursday when I came here and read this. Gracie was playing behind me in the room. She came and wanted to sit on my lap and I clicked open the first video. We sang A B C all day long! I think Gracie is one of your Creamettes now.
