The story behind this hat is really funny....I love it because every time I see Jacob in it, I just get to giggling.:) (And what is it with boys that they can't smile nicely, like normal, for a picture? Every picture's gotta bring its own drama to the table. LOL)
A couple of years ago, Jacob got this hat for Christmas. He loved it then, but he kinda grew out of it; at least, his tastes completely changed since then, meaning he got way more picky. Tried shopping for clothes with a picky 7 year old? Oh, it's just so much fun! Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, I dug out this hat and resurrected it.:) It seemed that every time I turned around, Jacob was losing every hat I gave him. He'd wear it and never bring it in from the car, or he'd put it somewhere, who knows where. So, sometimes we moms have to get creative in our discipline, right? I decided to resurrect this hat and make him wear it, since we just couldn't ever keep track of our hats anymore. I got the big eyes and the, "Oh, Mom, do I have to? Please don't make me wear that hat! Pleeeeeaaaassssseeeee!" LOL To which I replied, "Well, maybe this will teach you to quit losing stuff and actually find your other hats." LOL
From that day on, he has worn this hat, and now he's back to liking it; he says it's "so comfortable." It still cracks me up, though. LOL Gotta love 'im.
