There must be cave paintings that depict prehistoric parents trying to get their kid to wear a vest.
cold children must have been born in a barn.
This time of year I wear pretty much all the clothing I own at once, all the time.
But not the kids. They roam around the house and garden sleeveless and in bare feet. If we could harness the body heat rushing out of their soles we would have some pretty snazzy underfloor heating.
I plead with them to put on more layers but get met with scorn. Their extremities feel freezing yet they claim to suffer no ill effect; they are probably numb.
What is it with children refusing their parents’ commands to put on warm things? As we leave the house they have to be practically strongarmed into a jacket, let alone a beanie. Most of my friends have the same problem.
