The Wishlist

presentswebMy son is almost ten months old, so I’m starting to think about 1st birthday stuff. To be honest, I haven’t done much party planning yet. I know what I want to do for the invitation and who I’m going to invite (we’re keeping it small. Sorry if you didn’t make the cut). And I made an Amazon Wishlist for him one night because I was bored. But really, he plays with random trash we give him more than any of his toys. He’s like a cat, in that way. And I suspect he actually likes the cat toys more than he likes his toys. They’re the only thing he’ll put in his mouth, anyway. That and cat food. Maybe I actually have a kitten and not a baby. Hm.

So yeah. His favorite things right now are small boxes, half-empty water bottles, toilet paper rolls, carry-out chopsticks, etc. So if you have any of that stuff and you’d like to recycle, my kid has a birthday coming up…

(Oh, also, this is the first comic I’ve drawn with my dad in it. Hi, Old Man Carr! He totally looks like Richard Gere in real life, it’s weird.)
