The "Big" kids carry backpacks with them to pre school. So of course, Laynee wanted one too! So I fouund one with Elmo on it on Clearance a while back and she fell in love!!! The funny thing is that the backpack is nearly as big as she is!!! But she could care less! She calls it her "Melmo pack pack." That can be translated into "Elmo Backpack."
