Natural Selection

When it comes to natural selection, I'm beginning to wonder if Bear would make the cut. I say this with all the love in my heart, but seriously, how can someone be so smart and so clueless at the same exact time?

Today is January 15th. We live in Maine. It is Winter. It is -9 degrees. And gusty. I don't think it would be exaggerating at all to call those conditions COLD, do you?

And yet ... while she conceded that it was winter coat weather, I had to fight with her to get her to accept that things like gloves, a hat, and SOCKS, for Chrissake, were necessary today. You know, so Child Services doesn't come take her away.

Boy, these pre-teen years does something to a girls brain. Trying to figure it out is absolutely impossible. Good luck.

The girl has a point...

How many BEARS do you see walking around in socks, gloves, and scarves?

See what I mean?? :)
