Email conversation with my Mom
Mom: Baby's* hat is missing. Did she have it when Fiona took her to bed? I can't find it anywhere.
Me: She didn't have it on when we got home last night. I assume it's in the living room somewhere but I couldn't find it last night. In a pinch one of Fiona's leg warmers makes an okay "hat"
Mom: Okay, I'll keep looking. She's not upset at the moment, more puzzled.
Me: Last night when I brought her baby she said "oh no hat" but I assured her baby would be okay without it and she went to sleep.
Mom: I found the hat between a couple of books she was reading. Baby and her hat are reunited
Mom: (A few minutes latter) That baby has a huge head.
Clearly my definition of emergency has changed since becoming a Mom.
