School Supplies

Tonight I broke down and decided to get some of Michael's school supplies. I am pretty confident that I didn't buy anything that he doesn't really need, but he did insist he needed a sharpie and when I asked what for he said, "To sign yearbooks". This made me laugh, although I don't think he intended it to. I didn't buy one. The lead in the picture is not for the nonrefillable lead pencils shown, but for their good ones here at home. Michael won't take his good one to school because he always manages to lose it. Somehow he doesn't lose the cheap ones. ??
Steven was making peanut butter chocolate chip cookies when we got home, yum!

School supplies always make me feel happy. Remember how nice it was to have fresh new things for school? The feeling didn't last for long though...

Allen said...

I think he defintly needs a sharpie.

Martha said...

Tracy is right, new school supplies always made me feel happy too. That is why every year I have to buy some new crayons even though my kids don't use them much anymore and the ones I bought three years ago are probably still pointy.

Does that cookie making boy ever wear clothes?

hannah said...

No they're not. And I use them when the weather is dumb.

Martha said...

Well, it's good to know they aren't going to waste. This year I bought markers instead. Will you use them?

hannah said...

Ummm, no prolly not.

Martha said...

Then I have a good excuse to buy more crayons.

Rachel said...

Martha- Steven rarely has a shirt on here.

Heather said...

I love school supplies! And I'm with Allen, I think he needs a sharpie, too. Sharpies are so handy for so many things. Not just signing yearbooks:)

Tracy said...

Rachel, do update us when you finally break down to the pressure and buy him a Sharpie... :o)

Rachel said...

Tracy- We have some sharpies floating around the house he can use. I really don't think that he will NEED a sharpie. :)

thegreatmichael said...

See, Mom? EVERYONE needs a sharpie!

thegreatmichael said...

... And I TOLD you there were more reasons to buy a sharpie.

Rachel said...

Yes, but you never gave me any of the other reasons.

thegreatmichael said...

Okay, 5 more reasons to get a new sharpie...
1. The sharpies that we have are OLD sharpies.
2. When you think people are being doofuses you can draw barfing faces and nuclear explosions on their pencil cases.
3. Sharpies write darker than pens or pencils, so you can write your name at the top of your paper and then flip the paper over and write your name backwards on the other side.
4. Green, blue, red, and black are boring colors. The one I wanted was orange.
5. ART!!
There, Mom. HA!!

Rachel said...

I rest my case! :)

thegreatmichael said...

What? Those are wonderful reasons.

Priscilla said...

Oh for pete's sake...buy the kid an orange sharpie!!!!!!!

thegreatmichael said...

Those sharpies are not new. And they're not orange.

PS: I'll be looking for that orange sharpie at the picnic tomorrow, Aunt Priscilla. :)

Dave said...

Will someone please buy me the G.I. Joe that I never got as a kid... Also, I want Lucky Charms for breakfast every morning...and, and, and, caaaandy whenever I want it. C'mon, people, the kid is not lacking for things. It's ok to not get him the orange sharpie.

P.S. - My guess is that he'll cry to grandma and she'll get it for him. Mark my words.

thegreatmichael said...

Poor, poor me... "Nobody loves me, everybody hates me..." <-(singing)

thegreatmichael said...

And I'm NOT going to go crying to Grandma.
