Snow Bird

The last time it snowed, Moose told me he did not want to stand in the cold and wait for the bus. I don't blame him. When I ride the bus to work, I wait in my car till the bus pulls in the station and than run to the line.

But it sure broke my heart after I dropped him off at school to pass the bus stop for the middle school kids. Some just sweatshirts on, no hats, no gloves and one kid in shorts- only a couple of kids wearing real winter coats. It was 9 degrees and the wind was blowing. I stopped and offered to let them wait in the car. But of course they said no. I would want my kids to say no to the stranger as well, but it was hard to drive away. At one stop there was other parents waiting with their kids in the car, but two kids still standing out in the cold. Did the parents offer, did the kids say no???? Riding the bus can be such a pain in the butt some times........

Our neighbor kid wears shorts and a sweatshirt every day...I wonder sometimes if he even owns a coat! Breaks my heart!!! I hope the snow clears up soon for you! Spring is supossed to come this week...it will be here soon!

LOL! PLEASE stop feeling bad for them! My daughter is in Middle School, and it is their "thing." It isn't "cool" to wear anything but a sweatshirt. Trust me, my daughter has two coats, hats, gloves, scarves...we even shopped together and I let her pick out a coat that she would wear, and I still have to insist on it everyday. I've given up on the hat and glove fight, but I won't allow her to leave without a coat on. The whole thing drives me batty!

I guess this is one problem we'll never have to deal with, living in Texas! LOL

I pass the same kids at the bus stops and wonder the same thing. Do they have coats? how can they not be cold and when did wearing coats become not cool?

I agree that it is a "to be cool or not to be cool" kinda thing. Great shot!

Oh, that makes me sad. Poor kids! But also they are trying to be "cool" right? Gah - kids!

Anyhow - that photo is great...brr...but I'll stick to sunny CA! :-)

Oh, I hope it warms up. I had a couple of friends who had boys that just would not wear pants they wore shorts all year long. Sometimes you have to wonder.

I love the photo. I hope all is going OK in your home.

That will totally be my son in shorts one day! Love that photo!

Wonderful shot! I remember those days of waiting for the bus in the cold. Well, if it was their decision to wear something so light, then maybe they learned something? Hopefully??

That was so nice of you to offer that to them, at least you did.
