When You’re Finally A Rock Star…

My darling daughter came home last Friday with the request that I just had to make a hat for her classmate for her birthday yesterday.  Say what…? I have four shows this month that I’m trying to get ready for and a deadline to meet tomorrow.

Over the years, several of her friends have received one of my fun hats for their birthdays, usually when we attend a party.  I don’t know any of these kids’ birthdays unless I’m dragged to a party.

So anyway, someone in her circle who hadn’t gotten one of my hats yet in all these years finally approached Jess and actually asked if she could please have one for her birthday too, even though she wasn’t having a party.  (sigh) They’re in middle school and they’ve all practically grown up together since they began school.

So I said **NO**.

Of course I didn’t! My daughter picked out the yarn and I made her friend an ear hat Sunday night.  Had her wrap it though.

I have to admit, it can be flattering when your kids and their friends think your stuff is so cool they just gotta have it.  Though I wish the timing were better since I’m trying to get ready for shows.

Then all the girls decided they would all wear the hats I’ve made them to school today.  And they actually did.  I think even Coach wore hers.  I just wish I had a photo.

Then my daughter comes home and tells me, “Oh Mommy, it was great.  Everyone LOVES your hats.  And oh yeah, the boys are feeling left out too.  Michael wants one that says Texas Tech for Christmas.  Even Zach said he’d wear one.”

“And which kind would that be, the one that looks like it has a pony tail, or one with ears?”  I ask.

“I don’t know.  And there’s also Marley (in the rock band) and…..”

“Jess! Do your friends know how much my hats cost?”

“Well, no, but they are hoping you’ll be at the school Christmas bazaar….”


Yeah, always awesome when your kids volunteer you for birthdays and Christmas.

If I end up making hats for the entire 8th grade, they better drop my name around a few times…..

    Oh boy! HOW much do they cost? We have four grands–kids that is. The three boys might not wear one, but I bet Rachel would. Let me know how much they cost, Julie, and I will send the dough re mi.

      Hey Mrs. Dickerson! Thanks for visiting my blog. Hats start at $30 and go up depending on the kind of fiber used and any embellishments. I’ll send you an email later today and we can discuss.
