We were away when our area had a small snow storm. I think there was about 2 inches on the ground. When we returned from our trip, some snow still remained. Celia wanted to go out and sled and build a snowman. Umm no can do.
So I promised her that after some quiet time she could go out in the snow. I thought she would lose interest. Nope.
After quiet time, girl friend got on boots, mittens, and warm pants and went out on our deck to plan in the inch of snow. 15 minutes later she asked to come in because she took off her mittens and her hands were now cold. I am told to buy her better mittens. After an exhausting argument over the fact that if she had kept them on then her hands would have been okay and having a 5 year old come back with things that I have no answer for I finally agreed that they were awful mittens. We did agree though that she will have to live with them this winter. They are waterproof, great mittens if you keep them on your hands!!
