Hen's Favorite Shirt
Photo by Amy LV
We all have articles of clothing that we looooove. Articles of clothing that we wear over and over again until they almost fall apart. In fact, I've heard that most people wear 30% of their clothing 70% of the time and 70% of their clothing 30% of the time.
Our home holds a small pile of our children's baby clothes that just float around. It's hard for me to say goodbye to those fuzzy jammies, difficult for me to put them into boxes, and I would never give them away. Sometimes I just pick each one up and remember.
Students - I wrote this poem thinking about a shirt that Henry loves, a shirt he wears as much as he can. And while he is far from outgrowing this shirt, someday he will, and I imagined that day while writing last night. This is a good place to get a writing idea. Think of an object you have outgrown, an object you will someday outgrow, or an object that you don't need anymore but still hang onto. Then write.
