Why on earth do kids insist on wearing small clothes when their cupboards are full of stuff that actually fits them?

See this jacket in the photo?  Well, this is Connor’s favourite, and my pet hate… he insists on wearing it when he picks out his clothes, and he had it on again today when I got home.  Beauty told me that she’d tried to tell him to wear a bigger jacket because this one was too small… his answer… “the size doesn’t make me warm, Beauty, this makes me warm on the inside” (while he put his hand over his heart).

Sweet child… think I’m going to have to make it mysteriously disappear.
