When Joram started complaining that our Melbourne Tram family tee was so tight that he could not put it on, I had the suspicion that it is about time to bid farewell to our very first family outfit. True enough, it was tough to put his hand through the armhole even with my help.
We bought this set when we went Melbourne for my best friend's wedding 9 years ago. Since then, the little t-shirt had been passed down from one sibling to the next, ending up with Joram. After little brother was born, I had asked my friend to get bigger shirts for the older ones to complete the set. However, that can no longer be done anymore. At the beginning of this year, she and her husband moved to another city so there is no way to ask her to get a bigger shirt for my eldest so that the rest can be handed down to the next younger sibling and for us to give away the smallest size.
It is doomed for retirement and will be kept together with the rest of our mementos.
