I knew Binny needed a new winter coat but not until we experienced a major zipper explosion last week did I actually go out and buy her a new one. The lightweight jacket she had been wearing all Fall wasn't going to be warm enough with snow flurries floating around in the cold air.
As I was helping her get ready for school on a particularly chilly morning, I went through the closet to find something that would work until I could go shopping, and pulled out two coats. She tried on the first one which was too small but would work for a day. She put it on and as I tried to zip it up, the zipper broke apart in all directions leaving poor Binny stuck in her coat with no way of getting out or even re-zipping if she would happen to un-zip it. On to coat #2 which was also a bit small and also had a zipper issue from last year (that I forgot about), but it was all we had.
Poor Binny had to have her teacher pull the thing off over her head when she got to school which in turn prompted the teacher to send me an email letting me know that Binny's coat was too little and broken. (Like I didn't know)
Good thing I had a shopping trip with a friend planned for the very same day.
The zipper on the new coat looks heavy duty so hopefully we won't have any more coat drama for the winter. Unless, you count the three days of whining from Mae when I didn't buy a brand new coat for her. It's about time Binny got something new though. Mae generally gets all of the new clothes because she's older and most of it can be passed down to Binny anyway. Just look at the rest of Binny's outfit for proof. Those pants were Mae's and the boots too.
