Oh, the hats mom wears! Do you feel like you play a dozen different roles in a day?
(just kidding on that last one – but then again, maybe you’ve got a tribe of wild Indians running around).
Why you need it
These are your roles. The many hats you wear throughout a day, a year, throughout the lives of your children.
How you choose to wear these hats determines how well you carry out each particular role.
I’m here to help you do it better.
I’ve raised four children who are almost all out of the nest. I’m also a Gigi.
And I’ve got some answers for how to wear those hats.
The only hat I usually wear is a sun visor, and that’s when I’m at the beach. It protects my face from harmful sun rays (so I don’t get age spots, see), but it doesn’t mash down my hair.
That’s what I hate about hats. They mash my hair.
And yet, I’ve been wearing hats for 30 years now.
The day I became a mom, I put on a hat.
The mom hat.
Throughout the years, that mom hat has transitioned many times.
The mom hat is always on, whether I’ve got the sun visor or not.
That hat is kind of like a sombrero. It’s so big, you can fit about 31 hats underneath it.
Those are the hats I’m talking about; the hats mom wears.
A few examples
In this series I’m digging into my trunk and trying on all the hats.
Hmmm…let me see.
Oh, here’s the nurse’s cap – that was one of the first hats I used. The first time my little baby girl sneezed, I put it on. It was a worrisome hat, I didn’t like it, and I’m not necessarily a good nurse AT ALL (ask my kids).
However, I learned early on that I was going to wear several hats I hadn’t planned in the bargain of being mom.
Ah, I see the teacher cap there too. Those homeschool years were hard, but oh, they were full of joy, too!
And here’s the baseball cap. Ack. I don’t even DO sports, but when you have a son, you have to throw a ball now and then – and watch a LOT of it.
