About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

If you have young kids, you may know about Paw Patrol. A TV show about rescue dogs who work together to help out whenever there is trouble in Adventure Bay.
Our kids enjoy watching the show, so I looked into buying them Paw Patrol tshirts.
Our son had one request, a shirt with all six of the original Paw Patrol dogs on it. Easy, right? Who knew a shirt like that would be difficult to find!
As expected, some Paw Patrol t-shirts have only one or a few of the original pups. But there are others that, at first glance, look like they have the entire original Paw Patrol (like these: 1
). But are actually missing Skye, a key member (she is in every episode
) and the only female pup from the original Paw Patrol.
Our son noticed the problem almost immediately. As I continued searching, I kept finding t-shirts with the same issue. The shirts only had five of the original six pups. And the missing pup was always Skye.
Our son thought it was ridiculous to exclude Skye from some of the t-shirts. Why exclude the girl dog? He stood by his decision for a shirt with all six pups.
While I was able to find a handful of shirts with all six dogs like this one
, it wasn't nearly as easy as I expected. And the choices seem to be quite limited. I haven't yet found a shirt with all six of the original pups that actually interests our son.
We haven't bought a Paw Patrol t-shirt yet, but I enjoyed chatting with our son about why Skye, the female dog, might have been excluded and whether he thinks kids would like to wear those shirts.
