Yes, Sebastian this is a hat. This summer my friends, Greg and Cat's son came to spend some time with me. He is 2 years old. We got to play badminton, we painted, practiced our letters and watched movies. He was so wonderful. He was constantly putting things on his head saying "Auntie Sarah, is it a hat?" including his toilet seat. Well Sebastian this is a hat for you this Christmas. Miss you xoxo.
