New Hats

Jeremy needs a new hat for winter. For the last who knows how many years, he's wanted one of those lumberjack hats that has the floppy ears and fur or fluff or whatever sticking out around the edge. I've finally caved and let him get one. The s-t-u-p-i-d (we aren't allowed to say that word in our house, so we spell it) thing was $10. Jeremy, of course, thought it was a bargain! Even though it says Guinness on the side (we still aren't sure if that's the beer or just the hat), he fell in love with it. AND so did his son! While I wondered through the women's clothes looking for a last minute deal, Jeremy and Ben dashed back to the little boys hats to see if they could find Ben a matching hat that fit his head. And they did! Ben wore his new hat all the way to the check out line where he announced that, really, he liked Daddy's hat and "Jer could get a new one."
We'll see who's wearing what hat when winter comes. Jeremy has said that we may be buying ben an s-t-u-p-i-d $10 hat just so they can have the exact same hat!
It is cute to see them dress like "twins." It could get interesting when the need matching boots and snow pants too! Ben won't fit in Jer's pants!


  1. I chose a toned down hat for my wife's sake, but it is a step in the right direction toward a really cool one! Also, I never referred to the hat as "s-t-u-p-i-d." "Sweet," maybe, but not stupid!

  2. No darling, I called the hat s-t-u-p-i-d because it was $10.
