Remember when you were a kid and the most exciting thing about going back to school was your new pencil case? No? Well I do, because I was a nerd. And nerds like pencil cases.
My son only gets mildly excited about school supplies, thank god. His main enthusiasm right now is for his “trapper.” That’s what they call them. Trappers.
His trapper is not that great. It’s big and it’s green. There’s not even a Camaro on it.
So of course I had to go all Grandpa Simpson on him and say, “Back in MY day they were called Trapper Keepers and they were RAD! They had horses and muscle cars and unicorns on them!”
Then, a little sigh that said, “you are SO clueless, mom” and then he was gone.
He will NEVER understand.
Anyway, here are some cool back-to-school supplies that I have been drooling into my pencil case over.
