As my girls and I were headed home from a lunch outing a few days ago, my 2 youngest (5 & 4 years old) had this interaction in the back seat.

Kiera, my 5 year old, “Jess, can I have my hat back?”

One of my older girls said she was sleeping, so I told her to just gently take the hat off and give it back to Kiera. As soon as I said that Jessica’s hand went flying up to her forehead to hold the hat in place.

Me, “Do you need it back now? Or, can you wait til we get home?”

Kiera, “That’s ok Jess, you can keep it if you want.”

Awww, melt my heart. It was the perfect “mommy moment,” which was then followed by…..

Kiera saying, “I know, Mommy! Can you make me a new one so we can match? And, can you make it in the colors of Danica Patrick’s car?!?!?” (Danica Patrick is a NASCAR driver)

The mommy moment was over.

Do you ever have those crochet “mommy moments?”



  1. I’ve made that hat! :-) And yes, I always think I’m okay with making something for just one of my three. Never quite works out that way (but I’m always glad they want things made by me!).

  2. Kristine, your daughters’ hats are adorable! And your story is very sweet. :) Thank you for linking up on my blog. Hope to see you again soon!

  3. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after looking at some of the articles I realized
    it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I found
    it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

    • Welcome! I have lots of new content coming soon. Would love to see you come back.
