M: Joe, it will feel hot outside today, you want your body to feel cool, wear these pants.
J: NOOOOOOO Mommy, I wear SNOW PANTS. Dey keep me WAAARRRRMMM.
M: (digging through a box of summer clothes from last year) How about some shorts? These will help your body stay cool.
J: NO! SNOW PANTS KEEP ME WARM!
M: (Holding up hands in defeat) Okay, wear the snow pants! (I leave the room).
Next thing I see as I come back in from the garage...
About an hour after playing outside, Joe stripped down to his shorts and t-shirt claiming "Mommy, deese snow pant are making me SWEATY!" This is a child who learns by doing; his great grandfather was from Missouri ya know, the Show Me State.
I'm not sure where our dear friend Finn's great grandfather is from...
