I was blessed with a huge head. The bigger the brain, as my mama likes to say! 

And it looks like my son has inherited my big brains, because his head size is in the 98th percentile and he looks like an adorable, cartoon bobblehead these days. 

All of this is to say that I have a rough time wearing baseball caps because they don't really fit me unless they have an extremely adjustable back and even then they look kind of weird. Which is a shame, because they're such a cute way to support the old home team and hide the fact that you haven't showered!

The Cubs are in the World Series right now, and though I'm not exactly what you'd call a die-hard fan (I still ask Jason how many innings there are, again?) I definitely appreciate what a huge moment this is for Chicago. 

Go Cubs, go!
