I swear, sometimes I feel like my kid is Calvin...
So I mentioned Hil, whose party is tonight and for whom I made the scarf.
Not only is she a long-time friend to both me and Bubba, but she is also Schecky's friend, and favorite babysitter.
He loves her, and calls her cousin Hil.
Sadly, he can't attend the festivities tonight - it's being held at Manuel's Tavern, and he's not old enough to get in.
He and I talked about it, and he said he wanted to help with the present. We decided that we'd put the scarf in a gift bag that he was to decorate.
So I set him up with a pristine, blank bag and some sharpies. And I left him to his own devices.
This is what he designed for Hil's 40th birthday bag:

I knew I hadn't been paying enough attention when he called in from the other room: "Mommy? How do you spell 'diaper'?"

I was equally amused and horrified.
We decided that we'd put Hil's present in a different gift bag, and that we'd tuck his bag inside that, kind of as an extra bonus.
