small things {no coats}

small things #7 ... no coats

A quick check of the clock - 3:42.  Oops.  Sucked into the computer.  Again.

"Quick, quick.  We need to load up in the van."

"Mommy?  I bring my snack?"

"Of course.  Come on now.  Grab your shoes and go buckle up."

"Mommy?  I wear my flip-flops?"

"Yes.  Perfect.  Slip them on quickety-split."


"Yes?  Come on.  Chop, chop."

"Mommy?  I carry your purse?"

"Sure.  Thanks for helping!  Go, go."

"Mommy?  Are we late?"

"Not yet."

"Mommy?  I need a coat?"

"Nope.  It's warm out."

Ahhhh ... the change of seasons ushering in the balmy, no-coat weather.

No coats to pull out from under the shoes in the shoe bin.
No coats abandoned to the laundry room floor needing to be hung.
No coats to zip and button around little bellies.
No coats to unzip and unbutton for car-seat buckles.
No coats to retrieve off the van floor when we get a little toasty.
No coats to wear or carry in and out of stores.
No coats to make our appearance of "traveling as a horde" just that much bulkier.

No coats ... one of my favorite signs of spring.

  1. Hi Morgan!
    I'm visiting from SITS! We had such gorgeous weather here last week...highs in the uppper 70's. Then, it all changed yesterday and last night. I woke up to 41 degree temps. this morning and I'm FREEZING! I want my warm weather back!

  2. Yay for no coats! I completely agree. Stopped by from SITS. Have a good day!

  3. Wow! I can't believe it's warm enough in Colorado to stop wearing your coat yet. I just love it when coats are banished and flip flops are the only shoes on the porch! You have a sweet blog, I'll be following now.

  4. I agree - spring is great! No more bulky winter coats :)

  5. I do LOVE the fact that its one less thing we have to corral everyone into soon! The Little Man's favorite phrase right now, is "No Coat - You OK."

  6. I agree - no coat weather is the best!

  7. We still have to check the weather for the entire day around these parts, it was pretty chilly last week and yet this week it's back in the 70's/80's. I can't wait to not even have to think about coats!!!


Thanks for visiting! Your comments are warm fuzzies! (And con-crit is always welcome, too.)
