The jacket

Today, I picked out a light jacket for Charlie. He’d been playing with it on the couch. When it was time to go, I said, “Let’s get your jacket.”

Charlie ran away from the couch and the jacket and toward the closet.

“We’re gonna wear your the other jacket, the one on the couch.”

He cried a bit, pulled on the sleeve of his daddy’s jacket (which was hung right next to Charlie’s, in the closet) and said, “Jacket.”

“You want to wear this jacket?” I pointed to his heavier coat, the one he’s worn nearly every day this winter but which seemed a little heavy for such a sunny day.

“Yeah-ss!”

I laughed. “Well, if you feel that strongly about it, you can wear that one!”

I’d heard that toddlers could be particular about what they want to wear. This was Charlie’s first time.
