Large Hat, Little Girl

This hat is too large for such a little girl.

Her cowboy hat was way too large; a man's size, purchased at the local garage sale for a dollar. But for Nyssa it was fantastic, even if it fell sideways over her big blue-green eyes more often than not. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were a mainstay at this point in time... although the jelly never stayed on the sandwich but migrated to her face at some point. Nyssa wouldn't touch steak until she was in high school, so the PB&J went with us to the steakhouse where she would order her side salad to go with it. In our small town, the restaurant didn't mind.I love the memories we made in those peanut butter and jelly days and that old ten gallon hat! You know... I think that hat may be stored away somewhere. Do you suppose it will survive until another little girl wants to play cowboy?
