Pilgrim Costume, you’re welcome.
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

Sometimes when you love your children, I mean really really LOVE your children, you work very hard to make their holiday dreams come true.

Even when that holiday dream means wearing a pilgrim costume to their elementary school’s “authentic” holiday feast.

I used to be that parent. Now, not so much. Now I’m selling the remnants of their childhood dreams for dollars. I have become *that* parent.

What we’ve got here is the finest four piece homemade pilgrim costume from the parenting era that I like to call, “The Time I Gave a Damn.”

I’ve got a couple of kids left at home and they both refused to model this hat. Oh, sure … they pranced around with it on before school this morning but the second I attempted to grab a picture they vanished.

Now, I’m not saying your kid has a head like a basketball and a neck as thick as a roll of Kirkland (shout out to Costco!) paper towel, but if your biggest problem this Thanksgiving was finding a pilgrim hat to fit your child … well, I’ve got you covered.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Pro: One size fits most. I’m saying take off the apron that was loving tied in a back bow and you’ve got plenty of room for even the widest of children. Did I say your child was wide? No. But if they were wide with a head the size of a basketball and a neck as thick as a role of Kirkland paper towel … well, I’ve got you covered.

Pro: These are four separate pieces. That black dress can pave the way to a multitude of costumes. You’ve got the base of your witch costume right there. You need a nun costume for God only knows what, check that off your list. Oh, and that elementary school trip that everyone takes to the Heritage House? Yes, your child can be the best vintage kid ever. Just add a paper sack full of apples, carrots, and a hunk o’ cheese. BAM, you’re done.

Pro: You’ve taken this from my home.
