I was never what you would call cool at school.
 
To give you an idea of what I mean, when most children might be groaning about going back to school after a long summer spent hanging out with friends, I was hanging out alone at home organising my pencil case in eager anticipation of a new term, and getting excited about my new Oxford maths set.

When it comes to Belle then, I basically have to rely on other parents to sit me down and tell me what’s what.
 
“I don’t know what to do,” I complained to a group of mums back in the spring, “I just can’t get Belle to wear a coat to school, even when it’s really chilly.”
 
They looked at me like I was asking her to walk to school in a clown suit, wearing a ‘kick me’ sign around her neck.
 
“Plus she really wants this Mi Pac backpack, just because all the other kids have one.”
 
“Well yes,” said one of the mums kindly, “that’s sort of the point isn’t it?”
 
Ah. So this is where I had been going wrong throughout my childhood. The idea apparently is to get the stuff the other kids have, not refuse on principle, just because everyone else has it. This could explain a lot.
 
So Belle ended up with this Cosmos Mi Pac, and very happy she was too, if not a little taken aback at my suggesting it:

As I am sure the Mi Pac will soon be cast aside in favour of a new fad, I am preparing myself this time and have put together an ebay collection of super cool backpacks, so show Belle that I am really very thoughtful and also down with the kids.
