Marching Mad Hatter

"At the age of four with paper hats and wooden swords we're all Generals. Only some of us never grow out of it."
- Peter Ustinov

These days, our mischievous toddler is utterly fascinated with marching toy soldiers.

In order to seriously look the part of a marching band member, he has taken to wearing anything he sees remotely resembling a tall hat on his head. This includes...

....a Pancake House standing menu which he suddenly pulled from the restaurant table, proudly placed on his head as if it were a king's crown and kept on for three days straight....

....a rolled-up 2006 wall calendar that we had to give him as a peace offering when he totally flipped upon finding out that we threw away the Pancake House menu because it got too tattered and torn....

....and his daddy's camera light cover which he sneakily swipes everytime there is a shoot in our studio.


Really now. What is a concerned mother to do?

Nothing much....except to tell you that if perchance you spot a little boy confidently strutting around town with something strange on top of his head, please try not to laugh.

Instead, salute him. You will surely make his day.
