Dress Up Hat for Mommy

“They know they’re going to look beautiful,

and I don’t think women should look like costumes.

They shouldn’t look like fashion victims.”

-Ralph Lauren-

journal entry:

Fancy hats are for anywhere.  Fancy hats can be really inexpensive to get your hands on.  If you wore this fancy hat, you would be holding a $3.00 hat.  That’s with the flower and the netting.  My daughter immediately put it on and asked about its availability.  I said it was available.  Would she like it?  She would.  Might I ask what for? The pool. Ahh…the pool.  Good.  I liked that idea.  So, it goes to show that grandmas can still do things that please their daughters.  Things that aren’t too goofy or old fashioned.  Right inside of the door at Target.  That’s where the hats are.  The rest is up to you.

“Mommy, what’s that?

A hat.

Why are you wearing it?

To keep the sun out of my eyes.

It looks funny.

No it doesn’t.

Yes it does.

Oh.”
