One Size Fits All?

Luke is going to be Santa #2 in his first grade play this month.  We just got his costume in and decided to try it on.

The suit part of it was a perfect fit.  The beard was a little big, but we can work with it.

The only real problem we had with it was the hat.
We tried hard to make it work.  There was much whining and gnashing of teeth, but it just wasn't going to happen.

Granted, I birthed the boy and I am fully aware he has a big ol' his Daddy.

But, I really think this hat was way too small, even for massive cranium standards.  We had a spare Santa hat (Who doesn't?), so we are going to use it instead.

Here's a side-by-side comparison, just so you can see the difference:

Ho, Ho, Ho!

 So, yeah, one size definitely does NOT fit all.

A very cute Santa Claus and what a teen-insy hat!

Regarding huge headed children (of which mine is in the club - she doesn't even rank in the percentiles - off the charts.):

I saw a little girl the other day that had the tiniest head I've ever seen. And at that moment, I decided that I'd rather have a bobble-headed toddler than a shrunken-headed toddler.

Judging from the difference in the sizes of the two hats - one must belong to one of Santa's elves, don't you think?

Luke makes one cute Santa! He might need some stuffing inserted into his mid-section :)
