Quick link: A 9-Step Guide to Dressing for Winter
Today I’m writing at Babble with Djiboutian-guided suggestions on how to bundle (a new term for my kids) up for cold, subzero Minnesota temperatures.
I still laugh about the time they came into the porch with mittens on and their coats in their arms, their boots on the floor. They didn’t know that coats and boots go on before mittens. Lucy wasn’t sure what to do with her coat the first time she stepped into a restaurant in Minnesota. She wouldn’t go all the way inside and wondered where she should put it. I explained how to stuff it beside you, drape it over your legs, or let it fall behind your back. I also showed her how to stuff mittens inside the sleeves to keep from losing them.
If any kid licks a post this winter, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was one of mine.
We don’t even know the things we know, do we? Come on over to Djibouti and we can show you a thing or two about keeping cool but for now, enjoy this post: A 9-Step Guide to Dressing for Winter
