Hat On


The scene: Preschool morning tea.

The children are getting ready to go outside and play.  A small girl sits in her wheelchair with a colourful hat on her head.

Presently she takes the hat off and throws it on the floor.

Her teacher patiently places the hat back on her head.

The child rips it off and tosses it on the floor.

Again.

And again.

The teacher patiently explains to the child that to go outside and play she must wear her hat.  It is a rule at preschool.

The child continues throwing the hat on the floor.

Eventually the teacher explains that it is going to be a very boring morning tea as they will be staying under cover while everyone else plays outside - and that the child won't be able to go on her favourite equipment - climbing up the ladder to the cubby house (with assistance of course!).

The child pauses for a moment then tosses the hat on the floor again.

They sit, not moving, while the other children play.

Eventually a small voice is heard from the child:

"Hat please"
