Day 21

It snowed and got cold yesterday, so naturally I had to take Eve to get a winter jacket today, because why would you want to be all sensible and do that BEFORE you need it?

In the car: "I feel like everyone in French immersion has had that experience where you're singing a song from the radio and then your teacher hits you with 'parle en francais', so you try really awkwardly to keep singing the song while translating it into French. Davis and I were singing All Star: 'Quelqu'un m'a une fois dit que le monde va me rouler....'"

In Bed Bath and Beyond: "It's so INSANELY FESTIVE. I feel really bad for Jewish people trying to shop here."

In the food court when I came back with my food: "There was an angsty teenaged couple over there. So naturally I secretly photographed them and sent it to Marianna with the hashtag #goals."

In the car on the way home, I asked her to check the weather. She said "I can never get Safari when I don't have wi-fi." I muttered "maybe you can just ask Siri when it's going to stop fucking snowing". She picked up her phone and said "Siri - when is it going to stop fucking snowing? Hey, look, it worked!"

She got her first winter jacket that isn't from Land's End. It's a bittersweet day.

I've been trying to decide if June really needs a new coat this year or if we can squeeze her into her coat from last yer all winter, so you're ahead of me. Noah's hit a growth plateau so he really doesn't need one.
