Something From Aunt Mo

Something from Aunt Mo–
A collection of my clothes,
Cut up in little squares,
And sewed in pretty rows.

What a gift, Aunt Mo–
Memories saved this way!
A record of a smaller me,
That I can use each day.

A big “thanks”, Aunt Mo!
Now I’ll stay warm in bed,
With layers of my past,
And sweet dreams in my head.

Note to Josie:  Mommy and Pappa couldn’t bear to lose some of your early baby clothes. So, as you outgrew your clothes, Mommy sent them to Aunt Mo in Illinois. Lucky for us, she is a clever girl with a creative streak. For your second birthday, Aunt Zanna delivered this blanket from your Aunt Mo.

Hiding

Mommy cannot see me!
For I’m hidden very well.
So, I’ll just stand still and wait,
Until she starts to yell,
“Josie, where’d you go?”
And then I’ll take the blanket,
And throw it on the ground,
And only then will I be found!
