How I love you!
You take care of my babies all day long, help mold their little brains, and have more creative energy in your pinkies than I do in my entire body. BUT...
Sometimes, you come up with ideas that make parents cringe.
And I be speakin' bout' Mr. Harvey THE Hippo.
And I be speakin' the truth! Because all the parents agree, when we see our kid was picked to take Harvey home, a part of us dies. (This picture was from the very first day of school. I had to set the precedent for the rest of the year. NO PRESSURE.)
Harvey the hippo, is the class mascot.
And Harvey travels every single day.
He picks out a home, and then
In preferably funny (this was TOTALLY staged)
And unusual ways.
And sometimes Harvey even takes road trips with the family.
Which, by the way, he totally preferred Indiana over Kentucky.
And not only does Hope love Harvey, so does Pierce, because they go waaaaay back.
And while I am fond of the little creature, I just like to complain about the extra work he adds.
And I also love to complain, that the teachers like to come up with ideas that drive us parents to the verge of alcohol.
