My son has been bugging me lately for a new backpack. He keeps telling me that he didn't get a new one this school year instead he is still using the one I bought when he was still on first grade. Well, the old one is still usable plus it doesn't look liked its all worn out. To make him stop from bugging me, I promised him that this fall, I will buy him a new one and he agreed. I tell you, school backpacks are not cheap at all. I just hope he would take whatever backpack I get him otherwise he would have to settle with nothing but his old backpack, lol! My little has been very picky lately. I guessed because he is growing and is learning more and more everyday. He learns a lot from his friends at school and at church. He is like a little guys who wanted to keep up with the little Johnses. And if I will give in to his request...I would end up broke every time. This guy needs to learn the value of hard work and money otherwise he would grow up a brat!
