Bean is an advertiser's dream. He doesn't even sweat and he made me buy him that. But it's ok, because we both love this.

Don't worry Bean, all the pennies you put in pig-pig are still there. He's not weak, he's doing just fine. I think pig-pig might even be the safest place for your pennies right now.

raindrops on my head

Bean has a hard time with rain. But his bright umbrella, helps him out.

And this song, too, of course.

stake out

Bean's got his spot picked out for the season premiere of The Office tonight.

I'm just glad I haven't switched seasons and put the cashmere pillow covers on my pillows yet. But Bean knows when those are on, the pillows don't leave the sofa for any reason.

It's getting darker sooner. Bean can't even see his own toes!

Bean, try leaning forward just a little more, it ain't that dark.

The cool fall air makes Bean think he is a college student attending an Ivy League in 1954 with a full scholarship to play football. He has a very vivid imagination.
And today is move-in day.

Bean, put my old suitcases back when you are done playing with them.

trophy winner

Bean loves trophies but he thinks it's funny when people give them to those other than 5 year old tee-ball players.

Bean is so excited about the cooler fall-like weather but it makes it very hard to choose the perfect scarf.

done him in

I don't think it was all the wings, I think it was all the bleu cheeses. Ok, and maybe the wings, too.

September 17, 2008

you have one wing, Bean has another

Wednesday is 10cent wings night, and Bean's favorite night of the week. All the waiters know Bean's favorite flavor (BBQ) and that Bean requires more wet wipes than most people.

And if you can't have wings tonight, you should at least enjoy a song about them.

croak throat

Bean doesn't want to go to work; he says he has a froggy in his throat and that his froggy needs more of these to go away.

September 15, 2008

weak in the knees

Bean walked his little legs off this weekend, so he decided he's going to sit for the first few hours of the day.

Don't worry Bean, I'll bring you some coloring books and put on Golden Girls before I leave for work.

Bean as visual essay, pt.1

This week I bring you a visual essay of Bean making a decision. Each day will be a new frame that may or may not have words. I hope you enjoy it! (OK, so this is basically a comic strip I'm stretching over 5 days...)

Bean, I know you want them all but you have a whole drawer full of colored pencils at home that you've never used. I will buy you one new one for the sake of it being fall and Back to School and such, so pick out a favorite color.

photo identification

That's you're school ID?
Bean, it looks nothing like you!
And everything like him!

the notebook

Bean, why don't you get a pack of those; I think need one, too. And later we can decoupage the front with photos and stuff!

September 3, 2008

mirror, mirror

Bean is trying to figure out which locker mirror makes him look skinnier- or cuter. Can't remember which.

September 2, 2008

find y

Graphing calculator, yikes! Bean, maybe you should stay away from those.
It's ok because you don't want to be an astronaut anymore, right?

last call for white!

Bean and I are wearing our white jeans today. That's why there's no color for Bean today. Them's are white pants!
