A Snood??

Yesterday, as I was holding a little piece of netting, Sunshine approached me wondering what I was doing with it.

"I think it would make a cute jellyfish craft. We can add ribbon and other decorations."
"Oh no, Mommy. This would make a great snood."
"A what?"
"A snood." She then grabs it out of my hand and proceeds to put it on her head.
"What is a snood?"
"Women wore them on their heads in the 1950's."
"Oh, hmm, you learn something new everyday."
Next, Peanut walks in, so I ask her.
"Do you know what a snood is?"
"Oh yeah- In the 1950's, woman wore them."



There you have it. My six and eight year old kids have a better vocabulary than their Mom who happens to have a teaching degree!

I think they said they learned it from Word Girl on PBS. So of course I had to research it online and sure enough- it is what they said it is, although most sites I read said the 40's- maybe they were worn in the 50's as well. 

So, am I the only one who never heard of a snood?

Enjoy your weekend!

I laughed out loud at this post because I've seen them before but called them "hair nets" and I thought your story meant Snood the computer game -- a game my MIL got my 7 year old hooked on while we were visiting them in Texas this summer -- so I was trying to figure out how you would make that kind of a Snood out of a piece of netting! LOL!!

I've never heard of a snood! Obviously some PBS Kids shows are very informational! Cute that your girls were so matter-of-fact about it!
