Right after that we needed to go to HEB for some groceries. Beaumont has a huge HEB that sells just about everything. As soon as we walk in we see a display of backpacks. The first one Caleb sees is a Star Wars- Clones Wars backpack for $14.99. Caleb begged, "Please Mom can I get The Clone Wars backpack instead, we can return the other one." I thought okay, why not.
We get home and Caleb cuts the tags off of The Clone Wars backpack and he is trying it on, when Aaron walks out of his office. Caleb shows him the backpack, which he is so proud of- remember people we have a Star Wars obsession in our house right now, and Aaron asks, "Can Caleb take that backpack to school?" Our Co-op has a new strict dress code this year. Aaron doesn't think a storm trooper with a gun is going to fly. I wish I had thought of that at HEB. So Caleb wants to keep both backpacks and have one for school and the other for trips or where ever else he might need one. How did I get myself into spending $30 for backpacks that Caleb needs to use once a week?
Tonight PawPaw Garza took Caleb out to see The Clone Wars at the movie theater. Should we be feeding this Star Wars obsession?
