After the fifth, "Mommy please! Can't I go ride my bike?", and my fifth, "NO. I told you it's too cold."
It got quiet and I thought I'd won the battle until this matter a fact voice came from my son's mouth with, "But Mommy, I'm smarter than you. I'd wear a coat!"

I almost lost it! It was the most funny thing he'd said in a couple of days. He's a pretty humorous kid, but that one was too funny not to laugh at.
