I diverted him with the idea of a hat.
"What color hat would you like?"
"Purple" he said.
Purple it is.
I called his mom half-way through and said, "Tell Jackson I'm working on his hat."
She had no idea what I was talking about. But he did.
I delivered it the next day. His mom says he's worn it a couple of times already and that in itself is a miracle. Evidently the boy doesn't like his head covered.
Unless it's with a super special melly purple hat!
