I can't think of a hat-related pun


Somebody's a week old (okay, more than a week old by the time I write this)!  I felt the occasion called for a hat.  All important milestones and events in life should have designated hats.  I mean, sure we've got birthday hats, people in the UK have fancy wedding hats (I guess they wear them to their daily tea parties too?  Is that part of Life in the UK?  I envy your fancy hats)...graduation hats (academic faculty are particularly lucky in this regard with their kooky Pope-like regalia)...veiled funeral hats I suppose...but what else have we got?  We need more lighthearted hats for specific milestones.  Consider the New Mother Cloche.  The First Kiss Straw Sunhat (with ribbons).  The First Tooth Beret!  I demand the Debt Repayment Derby.  

Hi.  I am sleep deprived.

  1. She is so gorgeous! I've lived in the UK for going on three years now, and I still have not worn a fancy hat. I'm actually going to a wedding next year and I can't wait to pick out a hat to wear for it. It's going to be awesome.

    1. Wedding hats seem like the best! Do they have actual wedding hat stores and such? So many hat questions, so much hat envy...

  2. So cute! She looks like she's going to give a big ol' one week cheer (as soon as she gets the energy/wakes up).

    1. Oh yeah, I just plopped her down and she was out like a light. Chillest newborn ever (I don't expect it to last, but I'll enjoy it for now!)

  3. You are so sweet when sleep-deprived, this made me smile so much. And she is beautiful, and I am jealous of her strawberry blonde hair. That is all. Get all the sleep you can, that is, sleep when she does. Really do. Even if you feel like doing all the things. (Which means I should probably sleep as I type as well)

    1. I'm really trying to do the "sleep when the baby sleeps" thing -- it's really hard though! She sleeps for a good three hour stretch in the dawn hours so far, so I catch up then, and then kind of forget I'm tired for a while...even though I am!

  4. No daily tea parties I'm afraid. People do go out for High Tea when they are feeling fancy though. Yay to a week!

    1. High Tea! Sounds charming to me. (Pretty much all of the UK is charming to me. I know, rose colored glasses, greener grass, etc.) :P
