Scary Zippers?

Not that it is cold here in Texas today. No, we are unseasonably HOT. Hitting the 80's this week. Joy. 2 days before Christmas and its a tropical heat wave. Not exactly Jacket weather. However we do get a few hours a year where a jacket of sorts is needed.

I suppose this is good news for one Baby DIVA. The girl HATES to put on jackets of any kind. Anything that has a zipper or buttons down the front she throws a full out tantrum scream fest. We have a knock down drag out every time.

What is a mom to do? Was she trapped in a straitjacket in a previous life? What would make my 2 year old terrified of jackets. This is quite baffling. And we have about 48 hours to figure out the problem before a blast of cold snap through town and drops out temps to 30, just in time for Santa's arrival.

Any thoughts?


  1. I also hate to be zippered in -it makes me feel like I am suffocating.

    maybe put a little pom pom or charm on the zipper tab? or tie her pacifier on a short string to it so it has to be zipped up in order for her to use it.

    Not that I have a pom pom or pacifier on MY zippers.....

  2. Humm. maybe zip before putting it on her then do as a pullover? that, or find a heavier pullover for her. I'd hope she'll grow out of that little fear!


Tell me something Fabulous...
