Today, I thought we'd see if Aiden wouldn't mind carrying his own backpack to help mom out a bit. Since he's such a big boy now and walking everywhere, it sounded like a good idea. The backpack is very light. There are no books inside, just his lunch. For some reason it threw his balance off, big-time!!! He kept swaying back and forth like he was going to tip over; and then he did. Boom, down on his bum. He got up with a little help and made it to the car with the backpack on! It was so cute and he was so proud of himself. Mom was too!
