thin

As she lay on her side napping one afternoon, I suddenly noticed a very sharp angle. Right where her waist should be, there was deep dip. Her rib had formed a cliff because there was no flesh underneath to pad out the skin which gravity had pulled down.

* The Dip

Gosh. My sai sai lup is truly tiny, and so skinny, chopstick legs and all. Her school skirts seem to have gotten progressively looser through the year as she stretched up, and I find myself having to take in the material. I don’t think I was ever that thin. I think she weighs all of 19kg. I have absolutely no problem picking her up and carrying her through a shopping mall as her gangly legs wrap around my hips. Gosh.
