Hi Everyone – just sharing a post from my Books to Pen blog – a weekly writing exercise!
Hats have great importance. Young mothers put hats on their infants to protect them when they are in their strollers and out for a walk. They don’t know it, but when their babies are old enough to grab, those ruffled hats will be the first to go. Several months later, those same mothers will put the slightly larger hats back on their bigger babies, only to see them fly off their babies’ heads. Depending on the mother and the baby, you will see a variety of responses and emotions. It is one of the first battles between mother and child. Some mothers will place great importance in making sure the hat stays on. Other mothers will not care. In this struggle, sometimes one side shows a certain wisdom, and either mother or baby will choose early on not to fight the battle. These are the peacekeepers of the world.
