The Outfit ~ Generations
We have this outfit. It used to be adorable.
Bill (dad, grandpa, great-grandpa) was a rural mail carrier. After daddy Bill and mommy Carole adopted baby Kevin, a mail carrier overall outfit was found so Kevin could be just like daddy.
Leap forward many years. Kevin became a daddy. Out came the mail carrier outfit, though Kevin was not in the postal service. Baby Taylor enjoyed wearing the overalls as he toddled, tasted tires, and sat on grandpa's lap.
This summer, 2014, baby Donavyn donned the now thread-bare mail carrier overalls.
Sentimental, tattered, and worn.
