Sep 06, 2013 Hard Hat Trying to get the little man to wear a hat has always been a challenge. It doesn't matter how cold it is outside, or how sunny it is....he refuses to wear one. He has tried on ski hats, baseball caps, visors, messengers, and fedoras, but the little man will not let us near his head. So, it was a great surprise to see him wearing a hard hat that he found. I don't understand why he liked this particular hat, but if this is what he chooses to wear during the winter cold months...I'll take it. I guess something is better than nothing. :) Hopefully, by that time he will prefer cotton or wool.
