Hey, I’m a black mom and I’m extra AF (as f*ck), if you aren’t familiar with the acronym. LOL
Excuse my French, but there is no better way to describe my parenting style when it comes to trying to prove a point to my kids.
When my kids leave the house during the Fall and Winter season, I find myself giving them a lecture. Not only about making sure they keep on their coats, but keeping up with their coats. Hats, scarves and gloves as well.
My mama said it to me and I am pretty sure my grandma said it to her.
“If you leave the coat at school, don’t come home.”
For some reason, my kids need me to take it to the extreme to prove to them that I am not playing with them and ….
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
They not only need their coats to stay warm and avoid getting sick. But mama pays good money to keep them warm and I want to see them look like they left the house.
The coats are usually not a huge issue, because they don’t want to freeze those little honey buns off. However, I feel like I replace gloves all winter. So far the old stick the gloves in the hat and hat in the sleeve trick is working.
If not, I hope the school has some bunk beds, because I mean what I said before.
