A great big enormous squash squished his hat real flat

A great big enormous squash squished his hat real flat

February 8, 2007

There is just something about a toddler wearing a hat, that makes me want to squish him. And possibly dunk him in my hot cocoa and eat him…

Cute hat wearing toddler

I recently discovered that this holds true for preteens…

even big kids look cute in hats

Now if I could just get him to wear the hat at all times.

    Yummy. I think kids in winter hats are irresistable too.

  2. Christy says:

    Just tell him that wearing that hat will save his life someday. (You will think he’s too cute to shoot!)

  3. kate says:

    adorable boys! Your preteen could not possibly look anymore like Rob!

  4. Kristina says:

    You have such gorgeous children. I know for myself with my boys, I find that I look at them and say;”Did YOU really come from ME? You’re just too beautiful.” Do you ever experience that? : )

  5. Jennifer says:

    I laughed when I read the title of this post. My son received his first veggie tales sing-along DVD for Christmas and we have all been singing about Larry’s tall silk hat for weeks. Isn’t it funny that songs sung by vegetables can suddenly become apt descriptions of our everyday experiences?

  6. peepnroosmom says:

    You got some good looking boys.

    February is family fun month…

    With a hat that “cool”, he might never take it off. :)

  9. Liz in Australia says:

    They are some seriously gorgeous kids!

  10. sweethomealagirl says:

    So that’s the secret…maybe I’ll can talk my big monkeys into wearing theirs…

    Adorable kiddos, though :)

  11. sweethomealagirl says:

    Oops, bad grammar…need to go to bed…

  12. Tara says:

    love that song!

  13. Alissa says:

    did you know there’s an entire Flickr group devoted to kids in hats…


    (someday, i’ll learn how to link properly in comments)

  14. Mary W says:

    Of course at my house, the neon orange hat is worn as soon as it gets below 50°F but the oldest will wear shorts unless we threaten bodily harm.

  15. Trina says:

    The babies in hats are soooo true! My sister and I were just telling each other how cute each of our babies were in their hats…hehehe
    Now…I must put one on my teens to see if I feel the same way…kind of doubting it…lol.

  16. Jennifer says:

    Miles is adorable and your oldest is … handsome! Definitely not a little kid anymore.

  17. Brigitte says:

    I find that hats on children are so adorable . . while they just make me look like a complete doofus. Why is that? (Hey - who said because I AM a doofus?)

  18. Woman with Kids says:

    What cuties! Whenever they’re being snots, just plop a hat on ‘em.

  19. Meg says:

    They are both so totally dunkable…

  20. Marianne says:

    Eeeeeeeeee! Must. Eat. Baby.

    Omigoodness, Chris: Thank you so much for sharing your family with us. They’re beautiful people!

  21. surviving motherhood says:

    Staples! That would keep the hat on. Or i suppose you could try sticky tape if they whinge too much about the staples.

  22. Jordana (the non-Curmudgeonry one) says:

    VeggieTales, VeggieTales!

    I wish my daughter were more addicted to TV so we could actually sit and watch an entire Veggie show.

    She has recently begun to accept the existence of hats, thus fulfilling another wish of mine. So I have hope.

  23. Michelle says:

    I need to know where you got that hat for your pre-teen! My boys want those and we can’t find them. Do tell! Please?

  24. cassie-b says:

    It seems that teens would often rather be cool than comfortable.

  25. fancythis says:

    Oh the DIMPLES!!! I’m so jealous!

  26. tammy from georgia where its 70-degrees says:

    It looks really, really cold there!! Very cute boys and nice hats.

  27. Gwen says:

    What handsome boys. You are sure in a lot of trouble!

  28. Jeanne says:

    waaay too cute. Both of ‘em.

  29. april says:

    Yep, those faces are pretty darn cute.

  30. InterstellarLass says:

    A to Z adorable. You’ve got it.

  31. Annalise says:

    LOL. Do you think if I buy a hat for Stephen he will seem irresistably cute and adorable again, like the sweet little boy he once was??

  32. rachel says:

    very cute. yes - hats make them extra huggable, don’t they?

    and your older one looks like he just might know it. ;) there’s enough mischief in that face…

  33. Rae says:

    They both look so gorgeous. When your preteen (or toddler, I guess) is making you crazy, you should just run and get the hat, quick!

  34. Kristie says:

    I realize that your children are beautiful (or handsome, as the case may be for these two) so I don’t mean to insult you by asking, and I certainly hope I don’t …. but did you tweak these photos in Photoshop or something? Because the lighting is fabulous and they are both GLOWING and I want to know if the reason my pictures aren’t as good is because my own photo-editing skills are sub-par, or if my children just aren’t as pretty. :)

  35. FishyGirl says:

    Lyle was my very first Veggie Tales movie, and being the English major type that I am, is still my favorite many, many movies later (Omelet? OMG. Hysterical)

    Gorgeous kids. Great hats.

  36. Elizabeth says:

    Pre-teen, eh? When he’s a teen, if the girls find out how cute he looks in a hat, and he finds out how cute the girls think he looks in a hat, he’ll wear one. And then, he will fear hat hair, and not want to take it off. This is how eccentric teen boys are born.

    Are you going to homeschool all through high school? I chickened out before that time but I do read other blogs of braver moms and ponder the options for the baby of the bunch.

  37. khristalee says:

    but how do you get them to keep their mittens on!

  38. qtpies7 says:

    I think your toddler’s brown eyes make him totally squishable! Gorgeous! I’m a sucker for some brown eyes. (my boys are all blue/green, including my dh)

  39. C. Wingate says:

    My eldest (just turned 14) inherited the fedora Dad got for Christmas that was a size too small. It’s amazing how much coolness a teenager can get out of a hat.
