Size 1

This is a story about a baby.


A baby who has doubled his weight since we was born and continues to grow at unbelievable rates.

It's a story about a mother.


Who has a whole boxful of shoes. In storage somewhere. She's been meaning to look for them for months, but never has gotten around to it.


The mother crawled into the attic the other day, a flashlight in her mouth, to find the shoes.


Then she found them, darling little size 1 leather shoes.


And she brought them out of their box. And put them on the baby.


And they were already too small.

  1. Yeah, that's why I quit saving baby clothes. By the time I'd get them out they were already too small.
