Because it makes me happy

Yesterday a dozen different people must have asked why he was carrying his backpack all day.

The front of the bag is clear, so the carefully folded spare clothes were easy to see. I'm not sure why people continued to ask. I guess they just wanted to know how he would answer.

But no matter how many times they asked, every time his answer was the same: because it makes me happy!

    1. I am so glad he does things that make him happy, regardless of outside influence. The question is how to keep that going in him??

  2. Because it makes me happy. Oh, how I love that! :)
    If we only did little thing just because they made us happy, adults would probably smile more. --Lisa

  4. You have such a beautiful child. Indeed he looks very happy with his backpack. I do not see why people need to know why he carries it around. I also carry my backpack around everywhere in case I need to transport stuff with it, and I really like it.
