    Alright, I know this is ridiculous, but here goes. Tomorrow is my 7 y/o's field trip. He wants to wear shorts. You see the weather report. To me it is on that border......either would work....MAYBE. However, he is TINY (43 pounds) and I feel he might get too chilled. He doesn't agree. So I told him I would get some other opinions and make my decision tonight. Would YOU send a tiny speck of a person out in THAT weather in shorts? Oh, and today was pretty much the same forecast and we ended up with mid 80's and very muggy. No rain at all. *sigh*

    LOL I know people like that! I am extremely cold natured, though. This child was, however, born while I lived in Alaska. I think it ruined him!!!! [​IMG]

    Send him with shorts and a hoodie he can pull out of his backpack if he's cold.

    How about let him wear the shorts and shirt of his choice but make him take a hoodie in case he is chilled. My lower extremity doesn't get cold as fast as my upper extremity. It also may help him not feel left out in case his friends are also wearing shorts. [​IMG]

    Yeah, that would probably work.....his legs are just so skinny I don't see how they don't freeze!!! But I guess he really does know how he feels more than I do. LOL

    You're a good mom! If he gets cold, lesson learned, if he doesn't all is well and he will remember you as flexible despite your concerns [​IMG]

    Well.......I got out his favorite shorts and his favorite shirt (a brown/grey/cream polo.....yes, the next of my geek kids in line LOL) and a really cute hoodie that matches. I know he won't freeze to death no matter what the weather does so he will be fine. Ugh....I just promised him I would do the "right" thing and get other opinions. LOL
