The boy necklace
Ellie got several shiny bead necklaces in her Easter basket this year, and for some reason her cool older brother took a liking to them. He started to wear them daily, without any shame(Note the photo of him doing math). When we headed out, I would try to nonchalantly suggest he take them off. One day he was heading to music class at the public school and I asked him to take a pearly pink one off before we left. He objecting, claiming,"But I really like it!" So, we made a deal... "Mommy would love to get you a boy necklace. Would you like that?" He grinned and shortly after that I got him a boy necklace, which he wears with joy 24 hours a day.
