Grace’s internal temperature setting has always been on the high side and if we gave her half a chance she would be running around in the cold weather in hot pants and a shoe string top. This leads to loads of friction with Grace taking off shoes and jackets and us trying to make sure that she stays warm and healthy.
This means that we arrive at school and she is the only child running around with just a top on rather than three layers and a warm jacket, turn your back for a moment and she is running around barefoot on the cold grass, and she fights putting on any jersey or jacket with long sleeves.
Fortunately sleeveless jackets seem to be acceptable as being short sleeved, so that’s the way we’ll be going this winter. Shoes and socks? Well, that’s just a daily battle we’re going to have to fight.
