I don't believe in fighting the small battles. You want to wear your beach hat with your winter coat, even though when fastened in your car seat it gives you the Dumb Donald* effect, you go right ahead.
The weather is fluctuating between cold/rainy, to cold/a little snowy. I prefer the snowy. So does Scarlett, who points reverently and says softly "snoooooooooowwwww." Alice hates it all. I don't blame her - she's short. Must be tough to be down in all that weather. Near the ground.
We've introduced Scarlett to a few of our favorite Holiday Programs this season. The [original] Grinch was a big hit, although she was concerned for the dog. A Charlie Brown Christmas did not go over quite as well, and frankly, I don't blame her. All that existential crap about how Christmas has become so commercial. [Although who couldn't use a qualified therapist for a nickel in these tough economic times?]
*Points to anyone who knows who Dumb Donald is. I will freely admit that although I knew who I was thinking of, I had to resort to Wikipedia to get his name.
