I felt double blessed when I found two brand new prairie bonnets at New To You this week... AND that I have two little girls to wear them. Or at least I thought I did...
Vivian is not having any part of these bonnets. No way - No how. Some of you might agree with her but I love, love, love these bonnets. They are light cotton and will be perfect to use on our nature walks. Tic season is approaching and these make be a great barrier. I love the wide brims which will help keep the sun out of their (Ella's) eyes.
Ella adores this bonnet and loved wearing it to the market to shop for groceries. I think she also loved the attention from all the older ladies that were so sweet to her. She thought the bonnets were even cooler when I explanied that whenever she needed to carry something like an apple and her hands were full she could use her bonnet like a basket. Best of all she loves the fact that she really never has to take it off - she can slip it down and let it hang on her shoulders. This bonnet is a great reminder of how sweet and innocent our children are. I am taking this book off the shelf this weekend - I think she is ready for it!

Meanwhile I think Vivian's bonnet will just hang here - or until I convince her otherwise. My little ones always wore hats and bonnets since they were born - not sure why she didn't take a liking to these - maybe she just wasn't in the mood and I get that. Then again Vivian is Vivian. I am happy with my $12.00 purchase.
Tomorrow is Vivy's birthday party she is turning 2 - this Mama has been busy!
