An open letter to my girls…
I know it was completely audacious that I asked you to wear your winter coats to school today. I mean what kind of crazy, unreasonable mother asks her kids to wear a coat when it’s 39 degrees outside? Wasn’t it just days ago that we were still in shorts and driving around with the windows rolled down?
I know it’s a crime against humanity, apparently, to wear your winter coat before Thanksgiving. I realize they may seem too bulky and cumbersome or to quote Miss A, “TOO PUFFY MOM,” but I guarantee you that when I pick you up from school this afternoon your frozen tushies will be the only cool thing about you dissing your winter coats.
p.s. I told you it was cold out.
p.p.s. Tomorrow I’m telling you, not asking.
Do your kids put up a huge stink over wearing their winter coats? I don’t remember this being such an angsty deal last year. As Charlie Brown says, “Good grief.”
