Carter, always one to find an excuse to get out of doing what he considers an unpleasant task, did not disappoint when told he had to go jacket shopping with me this morning.
me: Come on boys, we really need to get you some warm jackets! I bribed them with a trip to Einstein Bagels, just to sweeten the deal.
Cody let out a loud sound- something between a moan and a groan – and wandered off to put on his shoes and swipe a brush once or twice through his unruly hair.
Carter went for the more academic approach.
Carter: But mom, we won’t need jackets soon with all the global warming in the world. Places like Arizona will continue to get hotter and hotter. No one who lives here will need a jacket this year!
Let’s hope jackets don’t become obsolete that quickly. Or ever.
