Put This On

I need to stop getting so annoyed with my girls not wearing their coats.  Their nice, new, warm, cozy, you-are-so-lucky-to-have, coats.

The winter weather is creeping closer to Portland, OR and I've (finally) caught on with being prepared in the clothing department.  Boots. Check.  Gloves. Check.  Winter coats. Check.  Are my girls wearing any of these things when necessary???  Ugh.

When my 14 y/o wants to hang out with her friends and walk with them to McDonald's (I've done my best to avoid this place over the years but hey, she's 14 and wants some fries) I'll remind her to wear something more than her Aeropostale hoodie.  "Mom. I'm fine. ByeIloveyou...."  door shuts before I can harass her with the coat issue any further.  What do I hear when they return?  "I am so COLD!"  Gee, really?

Yes, my girls are old enough to dress themselves and decide when they are cold.  However, it's difficult for me to handle the fact that these awesome jackets are going to waste!  Well, maybe I should give them to a shelter.  I feel so guilty having these coats just hanging in the closet with no use.  With my luck the day the coats are gone would be the day I hear, "Mom, where's my coat?"
