Head Covering of the Week

During the first summer that I covered my head during Mass I stuck mostly to Chapel Veils. Last summer though, with a grabby one year old intent on snatching my veil off my head, no matter how securely I fastened it with pins, I began to look at hats. This one, from Target, was one was an instant favorite.

These days hats are just as much a target for Sadie's better coordinated toddler hands as the veils were last year. And so I've been sticking with snoods most weeks.

Once in a while, after the memory of the last Mass that I wore a hat to has faded, I'll give it another try... and Sadie will remind me, with a rather rough game of peekaboo (the brim of this hat is just perfect for peekaboo) why I started collecting snoods.

I wonder if there's going to be a time, before Maggie is coordinated enough to grab my veils and hats, when Sadie will have stopped, and I'll be able to switch things up a little...

For now though, it's snoods! I guess it's a good thing that I have two that I like!

  1. Cute! My latest summer hat is a fedora and both bubs and husband keep stealing it from me!

    I was actually wondering whether you'd had went from a "Contractions' post to a day of silence and I thought she must have come!! (I'm sure the real reason was that you were unpacking!)


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
