A friend posted an apology note to her 1-year-old on Facebook. She was sorry for putting her into a long sleeve jacket. She promised her daughter that it wasn’t a torture device. It was just finally Fall!
Another mom was bemoaning having to give her up sandals for the year. She acknowledged her feet were cold but was bummed to have to wear shoes again.
I had to wear tennis shoes the other day and felt very constricted putting those puppies on. I couldn’t wait to slip back on my flip-flops. I do think you get used to having lots of toe wiggle room.
We talked last year about how teens never seem to recognize the change of seasons. They just stand out at the bus stop in their shorts, and maybe a sweatshirt, if you’re lucky, freezing.
How are your kids adjusting to long sleeves, pants, actual shoes after such a long hot summer? Are they still trying to sneak out in shorts? Do your teens still want to wear their sandals? Do you?
