Winter Mittens

Just like their evil cousins, the annoying scarf and hat, a winter mitten (no matter how warm, cute, and fuzzy) may not stick around for long.

Maybe you’re one of those lucky moms with a perfect snow angel who would never rip, drop, or hurl mittens (usually just one… argh!) into random grocery carts, sidewalks, or passing cars. What? That’s not your kid either!?

If you’re like most of us, finding warm mittens that stay on little hands is half the battle. Depending on where you live (hello Minnesota and lots and lots of wet snow), here are a few adorable choices that will ACTUALLY STAY PUT when Old Man Winter comes a’knocking.
