Good things come in small parcels

On Tuesday we went into the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne with Yvette to drive her home after the trial transfusion she was to have. We heard one of the nurses exclaim as she removed her coat to be weighed,”Oh you are tiny aren’t you?” I smiled to myself as I heard this and thought, she’s twice the height of Marg Schroder’s cat.  It was a remark we used to make when she was little. Born at 31 weeks (as recounted in ‘ice creams’) she was a very tiny baby for those days. At two years of age Marg Schroder’s cat came up to her waist. Most older parents know that it doesn’t matter how grown up your children become they are still your babies.  The photo attached was, if I remember correctly, taken by Marg at the front of her house. I think I might have been showing off the poncho I’d taken ages to crochet. Even if she was not premature  Yvette could still have been destined to be tiny as both my Grandmother’s were small and you know what they say, “Good things come in small parcels.” Image
