What is it about kids and coats? Currently we are experiencing temperatures hovering right around freezing and so, as I leave the house, I bundle up. Yet as I head out in my car with my nice warm coat on, gloves on to keep my hands warm, and the heater blasting, I see kids walking nonchalant, in shorts and no coat as if it was the middle of summer.
|My brother and me|
This picture always makes me smile. I look at it and wonder about the story behind it. Over the years the story and reasoning has been lost, so no one can explain to me why I am in shorts and a light sweater while my little brother is bundled up from head to toe in a nice toasty snowsuit. The thing is, I don't look like I am miserable or cold. So I wonder, did I fight Mom on the coat and she finally said fine, find out for yourself? Was I just warm blooded? Or was I just oblivious to it all because I was having fun with my little brother?
Whatever the reason, of this I am confident, at some point, my mom told me to put a on a coat. It's a given.
