“Mama, can we turn up the fire?”

WHAT?!”

“We’re freezing!” exclaim the children huddling in front of the pilot light on the propane logs.

“No!  It’s August!  The thermostat is set on 79, I’m cooking dinner, and I’m 7 months pregnant!  You canNOT turn up the fire!  Go do some work!”

These same children pile blankets on themselves while they do their schoolwork and I sweat profusely.  Apparently, my side of the family left no mark on them.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Sounds EXACTLY like numerous conversations in my house with my kids and they have spent the past couple of weeks in sweaters and under blankets and complaining about the AC being too cold.
