Can I gripe for just a minute?
Tonight I went to Walmart. On the way in, we walked past a young father carrying a child under the age of one. He was just wearing a long sleeved shirt and the infant was wearing a cute purple vest. Her long sleeved shirt was pulled up to her elbows. The poor baby's arms were bright red, and her face was red -- from the cold.
IT WAS -2 OUTSIDE!!! (Yes, negative two degrees)
Okay, Dad, if you want to freeze, that's YOUR choice!! But this poor infant, who doesn't have any body fat to keep a goldfish warm or the words necessary to convey her needs to you needs to be bundled up.... I'm talking hat, mittens, a COAT WITH SLEEVES!!! I don't care how cute that little vest was, it was woefully inadequate for the current dangerous temperatures we are experiencing.
This is not the first time I've seen something like this. I see it every time I leave the house. It's something that needs to be fixed. Please parents... fashion doesn't matter when your kid can't actually verbalize the designer's name. Safety, warmth and comfort should be your main priority!!
