A coat for James is just a piece of clothing that is frivolous! Most of the time he doesn't get what the big need is. He is the one in the house, running around in his underwear while the rest of us are bundled up waiting for the heat to finally kick in. Today, we had another apparently pointless discussion about coats.
"James, take your jacket."
"You mean besides the fact that it is 37 degrees outside?"
"I don't want to take it."
He opens the door of the van and starts to get out of the car without his jacket.
"Yuck!! The cows have been pooping again!!" At this point he got the jacket, placed it over his nose and ran for his classroom. The beautiful Tracy cows did it again. They gave him a reason to make a sensible decision!
