Cooper takes great pride in his backpack. This is the little satchel in which he carries his "school" necessities, i.e., two diapers, box of wipes, naptime blanket, and any loveys he thinks he'll need for the day.
Cooper also takes great care in packing his backpack. On school days he selects the items that he will include and usually tells me the reason why. It takes him a very long time to do this. But it's a fun process.
Cooper's backpack was a real bargain at the local school/teacher supply store. My favorite feature? I can see in it... no need to tear everything out to see if you have what you need. And since Cooper has taken over the packing, that's a GOOD thing.
