The Tiny Lime Green Jacket
The tiny lime green jacket I just hung on the stair post took me by surprise.
For the moment I placed it there, my reality hit me. Swoosh!
Really? This tiny lime green jacket has a place in our home?
Items this eensy-weensy were but a dream away a few months before.

And in one closet, you’ll see jackets, dresses, overalls, and all the rest — shrunk to the perfect teeny size.
After our stroll in the chilly air, I took the sleeping babe and snuck one arm out of the jacket, then the other.
Laying her down, kissing that tiny forehead and “shhh, keep sleeping” said I, her mother.
Then turning about with a to-do list in mind and not a moment to waste…
The tiny lime green jacket I just hung on the stair post took me by surprise!
