Auntie Meredith was just no good at buying presents.
It wasn’t that the shirt was too big, exactly; it was just full of empty. Rachel stared down at the sleeves that flopped boneless past her fingers. She might be just a Little, but even she knew presents weren’t supposed to be for when you grew up, they were supposed to be for now.
She glared accusingly up across the room at her mother, but felt only amusement in return. So she did her best not to look too disappointed when she got two more gifts that required ‘growing into’, but it wasn’t easy. The fact they were family was somehow supposed to make it better, but you’d think they would remember she was a Skipbaby, for her growing up would take forever.
