Juniordwarf has two pairs of fingerless gloves. Red ones and blue ones.
He calls them ‘mitttens’.
Recently he’s started wearing his ‘mittens’ to bed, ‘to keep [his] hands warm’. Sometimes he wears socks too, to keep his feet warm.
The funny thing about this is, he’s often wearing his short summer PJs at the same time. Even when the nights are very chilly, as they have been lately (summer, where?). Perhaps he’s inherited his mother’s cold hands and feet.
