Back to school

My little man Milan went back to school today. He’s crazy about hippos, and I scoured the earth for a hippo backpack. Alas, other than purple stuffed hippos (which surprisingly he didn’t like) we couldn’t find anything. And then I stumbled upon this little gem on Etsy made by owlsay in Texas. His name is Hugo The Hippo and the bag is a military rucksack. I can’t imagine that the bag has ever been used, it’s really pristine, and we adapted the straps at the back to turn it into a backpack. We’re going to add some velcro to close it, since the straps are tricky for little fingers, but it’s just perfect for the amount of goodies a 4 year old needs to take to school. Truly Hippo-tastic!
