My son has an undying love for the "Uhmercan FLAG!". He spots them from his carseat as we ricochet through the city (it IS like a game of bumper cars, I swear), from the stroller, from the sidewalk on our post-dinner, pre-bath jaunts through the neighborhood. He loves to point one out and screech "I see an Uhmercan FLAG waving in the wind! RIGHT THERE!" which is usually followed up by "Mommy? Can WE get an Uhmercan FLAG for our house? I NEED one." I always, and gently, told him we would get one "later"..until this weekend. Memorial Day weekend brings the flags out in abundance and there was no way to put this purchase off any longer.
Noah is now the proud owner of his very own "Uhmercan FLAG!":
Of course I posed him like that. Hand over heart, pledge of allegiance, go USA!
