The Dangers of Outerwear


Winter coats should come with some sort of warning about the dangers to small children.  We had a close call with outerwear tonight.

Eric and I were in the living room watching an episode of “Big Bang Theory”.   The children were snug in their beds except for Hudson having to come down occasionally to ask for a drink of water, ask what happened to his fishing hat, inform us that his sweatshirt no longer fit, ask us to explain the economic downfall of Greece.  After a several trips downstairs, things were quiet for a while and we started the show again.

That’s when the screaming started.

I ran upstairs thinking of what horrible scene might be waiting for me and imaging what awful things could happen to a 4-year old.  Nothing could prepare me for this scene.

“Hudson, what’s wrong?!”

He was laying in bed next to his winter jacket, tears streaming down his face.

“I got stuck in a coat.”

Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he will face adversity and come out stronger in the end.  Tonight you persevered and freed yourself from a jacket.  Today outerwear; tomorrow…the world.
