I have a dilemma and before I go make an ass of myself I would like your opinion.
We as a family enjoy wearing shorts- all year round. Jen has been on pants strike for 2 years now. The kids enjoy them and that is how we role. I wear flip flops all year round even when it snows- remember we live in CO- but out on the plains so we do not see the snow that you do in the mountains. We are water folks, Hawaii, FL, at the lake every weekend- we even wear shorts skiing.
When the kids are little they have to wear snow boots on snowy days- I get that- they are 3-4 they will step in puddles and get wet- no biggie. Taya wears a hat, gloves, scarf, the works- but she is 3 and she likes it.
Trey and Dylan are 10 and they want to wear shorts to school. They wear a coat- they do not complain about being cold- as long as their tops are warm they are fine. the school is forbidding them to wear shorts. I am frustrated because I am the parents and if I think it is OK- let it be. They are not causing problems by wearing shorts- still playing on the playground and having a good attitude. They do not walk to or from school so that is not an issue.
Trey is in tears over this, I am frustrated because it really should not matter what he is wearing- what do you think?
