About the weird things german parents do… Well it takes snowsuits or rather overalls as we call them in Sweden to be able to play happily in snow and subzero degrees. The most practical garment for kids in winter. Much warmer than separates and quicker to get in and out of. The alternative would be a jacket and thick pants

I’m curious to know MOTHER’s thought on T. Howard. It is the lead image you chose for the Friday links. He has, on numerous occasions, been accused of abuse. His use of the word “batch” for his children speak to his character, and not in a good way.

Enjoyed the rest of the links though.
