Ok, Curmudgfest. You have no idea what an impact your pumpkin hat has had on LB’s and my life. Here is a few examples of what happens when I go out in public with Doo Doo Bear sportin’ the pumpkin.
- Hey there pumpkin head!
- That is the cutest hat EVER!
- Hey Punkin”.
- Watch out! Pumpkin on the loose!
- Aww look at the pumpkin.
- Where did you GET that hat?
- Look at the baby mom, she’s wearing a pumpkin hat!
- She is so adorable…etc..etc..you get the point
I get stopped by the usual mamas and grandmamas, but also children of all shapes and sizes, dads, granddads, teenagers, construction workers, bankers, drivers on the road…..It never ends I tell you.
And just so you know, I feel I can take no credit whatsoever. So instead of saying “Thanks”, I immediately go directly to “My friend knitted it herself, isn’t it awesome?” Because OMG, I have never been stopped by someone oogling my kid as much as this last month.
I even saw your MOTHER yesterday on the street, and let her coo over LB. So Thank you, thank you for your skilled work as a knitter and kind auntie. And also CURSE YOUR magic needles because LB won’t part with the hat for more than 2 seconds, and it now takes me over and hour to get my shopping done at Wal-Mart, as well as walk the measly 9 blocks of main street. hehehe. Cheers.
