@cdnrunning@cmbt2@firstname.lastname@example.org@jenferlee82 Re: BackpacksIt's insane, really. Like there's a certain minimum % reflective surface they have to have because of traffic safety, they can't weigh more than xxx grams because obviously kids aren't that heavy, the weight distribution needs to be ergonomically optimized, easy-to-use buckles...I'm sure I'm missing something. Oh, and obviously BPA and Phtalate-free, etc.Add to this that first grade is this huge deal anyway, like with extended family travelling into town, and mass being read, and all incoming first graders getting this cute cone thingy with presents inside, and restaurants running first grade specials for families booking the entire space (!)....the list goes on. I guess the wacky backpack prices and requirements fit right in.Spoiler for pic of huge cone thingies.Oh, the kicker? Grade school only goes until 4th grade, so most kids only use the bags for 4 years because middle schoolers wouldn't be caught dead wearing grade school bags.Also, @jenferlee82 - hi to a fellow Kansan!

Is anyone else watching Russian Doll on Netflix? I’m obsessed. Only three episodes left, and I intend to finish them tonight.
@ceclarlinetlo Hmmm.... maybe 7? The lead character is a mess, but I still find her likeable. (Mind you, I used to do stand-up comedy in Los Angeles and have heard it all so my threshold is pretty high.) They do use the "c" word quite a few times. I'll finish the series tonight and let you know if anything super raunchy/crazy happens in the last three episodes. P.S. It's co-created by Amy Poehler, which is extra fun.
She looks great but that belly be poppin’
@jcbh2018 You son is adorable! I was the same way when mine turned 1. I Cried and cried when I put him to bed the night before his birthday. To me it felt like his "last night as a baby." Now he's 2 1/2 and I still feel like a "new mom." The time really does go fast.
