Silly Hat Thursday!
February 21, 2013 § 2 Comments
At the beginning of this year, Ben and I were evaluating our goals for 2013 and we realized that we often take ourselves too seriously. We needed to find a way to integrate some silliness into our life.
We then created…SILLY HAT THURSDAY!
Every Thursday night, when we come home from school and work, each family member or guest is required to don a silly hat of their choice. We are currently growing our collection, with the newest additions being a construction worker hat and fedora.
By the way, if you see an admiral hat, it’s on Ben’s must-have silly hat list! My goal is to find my old prairie girl hat at my parents’ house. Mom???
We also try to play some sort of game together after supper, usually a type of charades or silly song time with Daddy. Although Thursday nights are usually one of the nights we are most fatigued from the week, it’s been a wonderful time to connect together as a family. It is also therapeutic to lay down some of the seriousness of what we see daily in our life in Zambia (poverty, hunger, endless need, domestic violence, program funding issues, conflict at work, sickness, etc.).
This morning, Nathaniel was getting dressed for school and put his, ahem, undergarments on his head declaring it to be, “Siwee Hat T’ursday!”
Yes, my boy, it is indeed Silly Hat Thursday.
