If This Doesn't Make You Happy...Then Your Insides are Obviously Made of Stone

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this shirt at Target. I knew instantly it was a must-buy for our little blond hair boy. I have giggled everytime he has come marching around a corner today at the sight of our own little Charlie Brown.

We had a playdate at casa de phillips with some friends today and I had two little kids who were pretty wound up after being able to show off all their little possessions to their good buddies. After our friends left and the living room was semi-normal again, I tucked both kids into their beds for some quality naptime. As I kissed Isaac's sweet little forehead, I reminded him that I had saved the last cookie from our playdate especially for him to eat after he woke from a LONG and restful nap. I then went into my room to straighten up some things.

No more than five minutes later I walked into the kitchen to find Isaac sitting at the table, drink in hand, telling me that he did in fact sleep already and was now ready for that promised cookie. There were a few tears shed when I attempted to explain that a three minute fake nap wasn't going to cut it at casa de phillips. It was hard to be firm with a little boy in a Charlie Brown shirt, but I managed.

I was just watching the Charlie Brown Christmas special today! (I needed some sweetness, even if it is a bit early.) This is precious!

So cute! And that's a pretty smart kiddo regarding the cookie story. I need to find a Linus shirt for Tate...blankie and thumb-sucking. :)

I probably wouldn't have been able to sleep with a treat like that waiting for me either!
