Saturday is over and I still have nothing to say. My day has been pretty mundane with the cleaning of the car for the Thanksgiving trip and the shopping for the movies to make the kids not freak out on that same trip. We also went and bought a few more winter staples for the kids now that the temperatures have dropped to freezing. Because for some reason, people don’t think you should put your kids in t-shirts when there’s ice on the windshields.
I’m the queen of inappropriate climate-related clothing choices for my kids. If I had a dollar for every time someone told me to “Get a jacket on that child!” I’d be rich. Whether it’s family, teachers, or complete strangers – someone is always pointing out that my children are under-clothed for the weather.
I just like to make them suffer.
Of course, I’m the one who doesn’t use a hair-dryer, so most mornings I’m outside in that same weather with wet hair. And usually without a jacket. My husband has stopped commenting on this fact since I still don’t get sick often, but the rest of the world likes to point out that I’m obviously insane. And they may be right.
So, I decided to get the kids some long-sleeves today. You know – to keep them from turning crazy like me.
