Some things never change. As long as there will be teenagers there will be teenagers not listening to their mothers and not dressing properly for the weather.
I saw proof of this recently when my boys were walking outside during -26C weather… one with his coat wide open, the other dressed in only a hoodie. (-26C is -15F). My husband, of course, was dressed as though we live near the arctic, it is Canada, so he has a point!
Capturing this moment in time is a great topic for a scrapbook page. It captures a “here and now” moment, a “teenage life” moment, and includes a bit of history all at the same time!
This reminded me of my own youth. I received trouble from my mom, more than once, for leaving the house without proper winter clothing! I was “too cool” to wear warm clothes. Literally! 😉
It was -26C when I snapped this photo. I had to capture the varying levels of winter gear. Ryan – winter coat not zipped, Jonas – prepared for the arctic, Joe – in a hoodie. FLASHBACK! It made me think of my teenage years – I spent some time being too cool too.
