Abby is at the age where she suddenly likes to pull on random pants or headbands or hats, really just anything that she finds and can have fun playing dress up in. We like to encourage her imagination and playing dress up so we usually let her wear what she wants (as long as it doesn’t cause any problems for her). Normally she plays around but when it comes time to leave the house she gets ready, lets me fix her hair and is good to go.
Her new favorite accessory lately is her daddy’s boonie hat, his military one. He left it within her reach the other day and she decided it would be fun to wear it. I figured it would be just a one day, wear it until she was bored so I let her…even took a picture to send him at work
well, he forgot to put it away and once again she decided it would be fun to play with..and of course I can’t help but take pictures. She looks so darn cute in it.
The hat did seem to disappear over the weekend but today while I was getting ready she managed to find it again. I let her play, figured it would keep her busy while I tried to get ready. I told her it was time to get ready to go and quickly got her changed into her dress. She had a model shoot and this time I didn’t need to put her hair up so I didn’t even annoy her with combing it until we got to the park. I guess since I didn’t put her hair up she didn’t feel complete because once again the hat went on her head. I was pulling my hair up into a ponytail and she informed me she was ready! I got my hair up, grabbed my purse and was headed out of the bedroom with her leading the way when the hat fell off. I didn’t think anything of it but she made a huge deal of going back for the hat. Back on her head it went and she once again informed me she was ready, she was determined she was not leaving without her hat. Since we were running late I just gave in, I didn’t see any harm in letting her wear it plus it would help keep the sun out of her eyes. *I did move the strap out from under her chin when we got in the car.
When her daddy saw her he couldn’t help but laugh. Of course, he asked me what in the world she was doing with his hat. I informed him that she was not going to leave the house without it and obviously since it was green and her dress is green the hat became her choice of accessory for today. Oh yes, never a dull moment with my Abby.
Hubby is currently hunting for his spare boonie hat so she can have one all to herself (and leave his alone!). For now, it seems as if he has lost his hat 🙂
