I was taking the daughter from the kindergarten. Together we put her in her warm pants, boots, hat with a pompom, scarf, and jacket. We couldn’t find her mittens, not even with teachers’ aid. No big deal, she wore my mittens all the way back home; she did complain they didn’t really fit, thought.

The next morning I was the one helping her get dressed to go to the kingdergarten. Pants, boots, hat (it does look like it’s getting too small, I was right yesterday, we should shop for a new one), scarf, jacket, warm gloves…

My wife texted me as she was taking the daughter from the kindergarten:

“Wanna know a trick? Before putting a hat on a child, remove mittens from the hat, then you won’t have to look for them with teachers, and the hat fits better this way!”
