1. I know nothing about cold climate clothing.
2. My son thinks he has been deprived.

While roaming around a Wal-Mart, I noted that there were a lot of odd clothes on display. I realize that different areas of the country like different fashions than other areas of the country, but these were really bizarre clothes. They were weird puffy nylon jumpsuits and I couldn't imagine they were considered cool anywhere.
I finally asked, "What's the deal with all these jumpsuits?" Um, apparently they were snow suits. I guess it's obvious that I grew up in a warm and sunny climate.

My son eats a pretty good diet and he doesn't eat a lot of sugary snacks, but he has just discovered the existence of Pop-Tarts. He was hooked after the first bite and he has been begging my sister for Pop-Tarts every morning. He's such a Pop-Tart fiend that he actually stole his cousin's Pop-Tart today. Shortly afterward, I walked by him in the hallway and he cried for more "Pop-Tarts!"
You know, it's a darn shame that they don't sell Pop-Tarts in California. Sorry kid, yes, I'm that mom.
