1. The weather is below zero. My teens leave the house in only a hooded sweatshirt, no hat, no mittens. I ask "it that all you are wearing outside?" They answer "Yeah, because I don't want to look dumb!"
2. Youngest struggles for over a minute each trying to force her feet into closed snowboots. I ask "Why don't you unlatch the velcro, THEN put them on?" She answers "Because that would take too long!"
