Alright all you summer babies now is your chance to LET IT ALL OUT about how you never got to celebrate your birthday at school and how it scarred you for life and how you are now a terrible person. Ready? Go.
Nate's teacher sent home a note on Monday. Since this is the last week of school, they're celebrating all summer birthdays this week and, since his birthday is in June, his day is Wednesday and can I please bring a treat/snack? (Disregard the fact that he'll be in summer program, at the same school, with most of the same kids when his actual birthday occurs.)
I refuse to put Happy Birthday Nate! on said treats so I went with, uh, Yay!
And put them on these schmancy juice boxes:
And attached a fruit roll up (He had cupcakes Monday AND Tuesday and is having ice cream on Friday. I know, right? I wanted to send fruits and vegetables but Karl told me it wasn't allowed.)
Bam. And I didn't even consult Pintrest. (Pintrest would laugh at my feeble juice box covers!)
(Please don't tell the Star Wars empire that I borrowed this image from google; I found it on a site called "how to draw R2D2 step by step" (not that I was going to draw ANYTHING; I just googled star wars images.) Please don't get me copyright police. ITS FOR MY CHILD'S FAKE BIRTHDAY.
And here's the new Wetlands area (photo taken from atop the pedestrian bridge):
SHOCKINGLY, Nate got tired of walking about an hour in (after a full day of school) so we let him sit in the front of the stroller. (He's basically anti-stroller which, generally, is good for me as I hate lugging that thing in and out of my car.)
Thankfully, Boo Boo doesn't mind a little crushing (Oh, why yes we did decide the baby's new name is boo-boo. WHY?! WHY?! I don't know but we ALL say it. Make US STOP.).
Totally the right way to use a stroller:
(Also known as the entrance to Heifer International Headquarters.)

Basically, The Internet exploded with reactions to the cover photo of the woman breastfeeding her three year old, eh? (Do you think most of the reactors even read the article? I liked this reaction.)
Here's a link to an interview of the woman on the cover. Here's a link to her blog. Seems like a loving mama parenting how she wants to parent, no? So, everyone should stop FREAKING OUT, right? (She also wrote this.)
I'd like to share one of MY favorite breastfeeding photos:
Now, let's all go have a beer.
