Scotland is My Homeland

I found this cheesy tourist Scotland t-shirt while thrifting the other day. For a dollar, I just couldn't pass it up. I took it home and showed it to Connor. I told him that was Scotland on the shirt and had him say Scotland.

This morning I decided to dress Connor in his new Scotland shirt. I held it up to him and asked what was on the shirt. He responded with "tot-land".  Such a cute (and smart) kid! I put it on him and proceeded to make him say "Scotland is my homeland". It was pretty dang cute.

I realize that right now Connor doesn't understand the significance of Scotland to him, but someday he will. And I couldn't help but smile a bit when I pulled out his passport the other day and under place of birth it said United Kingdom. That's a pretty fun thing to be able to say little buddy. You are a man with two countries.


  1. I would be interested in seeing what kind of connection Connor has with Scotland as he gets older. And what kind of connection you guys have, for that matter. Do you ever think you'll go back there to live again?

    1. I would like to say yes, but I know that isn't true. Our hope is to be able to buy a flat there in a couple years and spend a month every summer over there and rent it out as a holiday rental the rest of the year.
