Over the past few days, Nairobi weather has decided to demonstrate its unrivalled schizophrenic capabilities much to the shock of everybody. I have never been one to be weighed down by the cold weather. If anything, only my upper body used to suffer the wrath of cold seasons. So in the past, I would comfortably rock a mini dress but layer up heavily on the upper body with a jacket and a scarf. Not this time round though. Man! That cold had zero chills. Literally! Not even gallons of coffee and a pashmina would save my legs from freezing last week on Thursday. I have therefore sworn to only wear pants to work until the weather decides to sober up!
This left me wondering if we are dressing our kids warm enough for this weather. And if we are, what happens when your child is in a spaceman’s suit only for the sun to shine in the afternoon? Worse still if they are in school (for those who don’t wear uniform) and did not carry a change of clothes. The trick is to layer up. Consider dressing them in long-sleeved tees, bomper jackets with detachable sleeves and scarfs which would then be easily “peeled off” when need be.
