Jane and jackets

Jane has a thing about jackets. She loves them. She never wants us to take her jacket off and if we do, she will occasionally throw a fit on the floor. We have been known to let her have her jacket in her bed with her as like a "lovie" or a blanket. Seriously, I don't know where this came from, but it is her thing right now.

Well the other week, Eleanor picked out her jacket for next year. We had noticed the sleeves were getting short on her current jacket, so we let her pick her new one and she chose a gray one with mountains all over it. Jane got super jealous in the store, so we let her carry it around. She ended up with it on (it is a 5T), and I kid you not, the lady at the checkout counter had to get the gun out to zap the jacket on Jane, because she would not let us take it off.

When we got home we put it away in a closet for next year, but Eleanor saw it one day and pulled it out. After Jane saw it, she adamantly refused to leave the house (through tears, kicking, screaming, and some limp noodle actions) until Eleanor gave up the jacket and let her wear it.

The rest of the day was smooth sailing.
