Don your hat...

What's a cowboy without his hat?
-Buzz Lightyear
Toy Story 2 (1999)

Today Jude and I were working on a hidden letter worksheet from using the letter J/j.  Jude recognized the uppercase J easily, but refused to do his work because the J was written wrong.  How does that happen?

  The J on the paper didn't have a hat. <gasp>

Jude has mentioned before the J has a hat.  Every J he writes must have one.  If he learned nothing else from his brief career in school, it is that J has a hat.  If I've learned nothing else as a mom to these kids, flexibility is not their strong suit. It was immediately obvious that a hatless J just was not acceptable.  To his surprise, Mom could fix this one. 

We just gave all the "big Js" hats. 
Crisis averted.

He could then color Uppercase J
(aka "Big J WITH a hat") black....

And lowercase j ("Little j, with a dot")

to create a Jack O'Lantern

Who, naturally, was bare headed.
