Grandma's mittens

Grandma Eileen's mittens are a hit!!

Nicholas has been going through a "I am in control of what I wear, and you can't make me put that on or keep it on" phase.

Shoes and socks are instantly discarded once strapped into a carseat, which can make life lots of fun, when the temperature outside is in the 40's.

Pants can come off on a whim.

That shirt I loved the other day, forget it. Not only do I not want it on, I will do everything in my power to pull and tug and stretch it out in the hopes that it will come off, and sometimes I succeed.

Those jammies I resisted putting on last night, well now I want to wear them out to lunch with Daddy.

What do you mean, I can't wear jammies outside??

But Grandma's mittens...

Those are a different story.

I'll gladly put those on and wear them throughout the house.

I'll play for two hours and keep them on while I run about.

I'll even eat my dinner with them on, and sneak some of Daddy's french fries when he comes home late with them.

Boy! Nicholas nad Philip are a lot alike! Maybe it is being born the same month!

We cannot get Philip to keep clothes on either! It has really become a problem since he is insisting on using the bathroom. In the car or especially the shopping cart at the store - shoes and socks come off too! At least we don't have the 40 degree weather!

oops! Nicholas AND Philip! Sorry about the typo - it's early! That's what I get for not proofreading!
